Revealing Obstacles in Concrete with Concrete Scanning Sydney

SEVEN HILLS, Australia - Oct. 14, 2022 - PRLog -- Scanning and assessing concrete and other structures is a crucial part of any construction or building process. It is important to verify that all structures are cleared before the coring, drilling, or cutting operation begins.

Concrete scanning Sydney effectively and efficiently reveals obstacles embedded in concrete. It also locates utilities without creating any interruptions in the regular operations of a business.

Concrete scanning services are highly cost-effective and beneficial when considering the costs associated with repairing damaged utility conduits, embedded post-tension cables, etc. In fact, many consider them to be essential for all construction projects.

How Concrete Scanning Works

Professional concrete scanning services use concrete imaging radar, which is a combination of the concrete and electromagnetic penetrating survey. The first step in the scanning process is using electromagnetic equipment to locate all available utilities within and below a concrete column/floor/slab. Once this survey is complete, the professionals then use a concrete imaging radar device to scan the work area. Electromagnetic targets can be confirmed and verified. This allows project managers and engineers to account for what's underneath and hence, make better building decisions.

The Benefits

There are many key benefits of using concrete scanning services. The advanced scanning technology allows you to find and identify hidden features that could damage equipment during coring or drilling or cause safety risks to workers. The non-destructive scanning also reduces the risk of damage to the structure during such activities.

The scanning equipment professionals use collects data in real-time and simplifies it. As a result, it's a safer, faster, reliable, and more cost-effective option than other traditional testing methods. The method can even locate targets in real-time when only one access side is available.

Services Offered

Concrete scanning services can be used for many different purposes. The most common services offered include the following:
  • Locate safe areas to cut, drill, or demolish;
  • Determine concrete slab thickness;
  • Locate and measure the depth of embedded plastic or embedded conduits in concrete walls or slabs;
  • Establish the depth and location of post-tension cables;
  • Establish the depth and location of steel reinforcement;
  • Identify damage or defects inside concrete (fractures, voids);
  • Facilitate ceiling inspection;
  • Facilitate structure inspection for decks, garages, balconies, tunnels, towers, walls, monuments, and bridges;
  • Locate metallic and non-metallic targets on floors and walls.

Thanks to the latest techniques used, the scanning is faster and safer to perform as opposed to other methods. It is more cost-effective for both engineering projects and average construction.

Be sure to hire the services of a company that uses the ground-penetrating radar technique, as it offers several advantages over traditional methods.
