Can it be scanned through concrete?

Concrete scanning is used to inspect concrete slabs or columns prior to drilling or boring in renovations and new construction projects. ACS Underground Solutions' concrete scans are completed using ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology for fast and accurate inspections. Concrete is scanned with the use of ground penetrating radar. A device is passed over the exposed surface of the concrete, sending a signal into the concrete.

The signal is deflected into the device in different patterns depending on the type of material in the concrete and the depth of the concrete. An experienced technician will be able to determine the type and location of the material based on this reading. Before one of our blades or drilling heads touches a surface, we make sure you know what is in your concrete wall or slab. We then get to work using industry expertise that is second to none to deliver your desired result.

We have clients from all over the Sunshine Coast, Brisbane and the Gold Coast who have RDA Concrete Cutting on speed dial. Do you have a project that needs our professional team? United Scanning are experts in the field of concrete scanning, often called concrete radiography or slab scanning. We provide our clients with a quick and accurate view of the structure, strength and composition of their concrete structures. We provide structural engineers, building contractors, forensic experts and concrete specialists with the essential information they need and serve multinational companies, engineering and construction specialists, local and state government agencies, as well as residential and small business customers.

Our customers rely on the accuracy and usefulness of the data we provide, so as well as having a range of state-of-the-art ground penetration scanners, we ensure that all our technicians are carefully trained and certified so that they can accurately interpret the information. As the scan progresses, our technicians capture images and, at the end of the job, we write a report that includes the images and provides a clear and, above all, faithfully accurate interpretation. Getting the right data from the right place with the right equipment is what we do at United Scanning and we pride ourselves on being the best. Most of the hazards that exist are caused by improper use or transport of the concrete scanner, which an experienced and properly trained technician will take care to avoid.

X-ray concrete scanning equipment can only scan one side of a structure, which makes GPR more suitable for scanning slab-shaped concrete structures. It is a faster, safer and more cost-effective option than other competing concrete scanning systems or traditional radiographic testing methods. So, if you are in construction and need to scan concrete, why not contact us? A member of our experienced and professional team will be happy to help. Images and image interpretations are provided in a timely manner and the process of acquiring the information is safe, non-destructive and can be performed without significantly disturbing the space being scanned.

Although X-ray scanning is an older form of scanning technology, it is still capable of effectively providing a clear picture of what lies beneath the surface. Concrete scanning is the use of ground penetrating radar and other equipment to detect materials or voids within a concrete slab. This means you can perform concrete scans at any time without disrupting surrounding activities on site. Depending on the nature of the structure, non-destructive scanning can provide greater confidence in compliance with safety and building regulations.
