There are plenty of reasons why you might need to see inside a section of a concrete wall, beam, ceiling, or slab. For example, maybe you need to cut through the floor to install a new drain, or maybe you need to make sure that any conduits in the floor are embedded deeply enough to withstand the weight of heavy machinery passing over them. In any case, concrete radar San Bernardino County from Subsurface Imaging can help. Concrete radar can be used to detect:
- Structural steel
- Post-tensioned cable
- Electrical conduit
- Data conduit
- Underfloor ducts
- Underground storage tanks
- Utility lines
How It Works
Concrete radar is a relatively simply process. Basically we send out a technician equipped with a radar emitter and a receiver antenna. As the tech passes the radar device over the concrete, it emits an electromagnetic signal. This signal will bounce off of the concrete and any objects embedded in it at different levels. Low signal strength indicates concrete or plastic, while higher signal strength indicates the presence of metal, water, or a mineral-rich substance. Our techs are skilled at interpreting the results of the radar scan and will mark the location and depth of all your rebar, structural steel, etc. on the concrete for your future reference.
Benefits of Concrete Radar San Bernardino County
Concrete radar is a fast, affordable, and accurate way of determining the location and depth of metal objects within a concrete structure. Unlike concrete x-rays, concrete radar does not require access to both sides of the concrete, making it very useful for concrete slabs. Using the information gleaned through concrete radar San Bernardino County, you can improve workplace safety and reduce the repair and liability costs that may be associated with accidentally cutting concrete in the wrong place.
