Concrete Scanning.

It is important to know where the steel and rebar is before you drill or demolish.

Concrete scanning is important in construction because it identifies the location of metal objects within concrete. These objects include rebar, post tension cable, electrical conduit and boxes. and many other types of objects. By scanning the concrete before any work is done, workers can avoid accidentally drilling, cutting, or damaging these objects, which can lead structural damage and very costly repairs.

Identifying Objects in Concrete Structures.

Concrete scanning is a non-destructive testing method that involves using specialized equipment, such as ground-penetrating radar (GPR) or electromagnetic imaging (EMI), to identify the location of objects embedded within concrete structures before drilling, cutting or coring. This includes, but is not limited to:

  • Rebars
  • Post-tension cables
  • Electrical conduits
  • Void spaces
  • Pipes and beams

Ensuring Quality Control

Concrete scanning is also important for quality control purposes. By identifying the location and condition of reinforcement bars or other objects within concrete structures, construction professionals can ensure that the structure is built to specifications and meets safety requirements.

Concrete scanning is particularly important when working with older concrete structures where the location and condition of embedded objects may not be known. It is also useful in situations where the structure has been modified or repaired, as this can change the location or condition of embedded objects.

Overall, concrete scanning is an essential tool for construction professionals that helps ensure safety, quality, and efficiency on construction sites.
