What is concrete scanning?

Concrete scanning is a process or technique used to detect concrete rebar’s, and embedded utilities under the concrete surface. Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is used to assess the integrity of the structure place. GPR is uses reflected radio waves, this concrete method is safe, non-destructive and versatile. This uses a special machine with the combination of advance software development make it easy to report the potential hazard regarding the cutting or drilling in the concrete.

The concrete scanning can be done before any Core Drilling or Core Cutting, Concrete Cutting.

Type of Structure Surface?

The concrete scanning can be done on any type of concrete structure, brick structure and hollow block structure. The concrete surface should be thoroughly cleaned and flat to do the concrete scanning.

Process of Concrete Scanning?

The consideration area of cutting, core cutting, or core drilling cleaned, and different type of machine requires different area eg Hilti PX-1000 uses 60 CM by 60 CM or 120 CM by 1200 CM area of the concrete. The technician uses special reference grid and scan the area.

Where to do concrete scanning?

Concrete scanning can be done almost every concrete surface. This should be done in the planning of any subsurface utility engineering, detection of existing utility and safety hazard recognition.

Why is concrete scanning important?

Ground penetrating radar is vital to the safety of personnel and the success of both new and existing concrete construction, utility placement, traffic control and underground utility repair, just to name a few.

GPR scans detect embedded electrical conduits, rebar, cables and other hazards which would otherwise be undetectable. Cutting or damaging these objects can undermine the strength and performance of the concrete, cause expensive damage to utilities and/or jeopardize the health and safety of workers and the general public.

Even better, ground penetrating radar scan data can give your leadership team more information, more quickly and more safely than X-ray, allowing you to more readily plan for CCTV pipe inspection, remediation, invasive testing and repairs such as pipe vacuum excavation and slab cutting, coring and drilling operations.

Concrete Scanning Charges

The individual concrete scanning charges are expensive because so much time is consumed due to the mobilization, preparation and the lower quantity other hand commercial or under-construction building require little to no time for scanning and quantity is large which result in lower prices.

Core Cutting in Abu Dhabi

What Is Core Cutting?

Core Cutting is process or technique use for creating openings for Pipes, Wires, Ventilation or air conditioning vents to fit through concrete and avoiding damaging the concrete structure. Core cutting must be carefully planned. in the areas of redundant and non-critical stress. Stress areas core cutting should be planned carefully…! Read More
