Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Denver, CO was contacted by Carlton Electric of Denver Colorado to locate rebar and conduit in concrete Slab. Carlton Electric needed GPRS to scan and locate reinforcement to safely core drill two 2” holes in concrete slab. The cores were needed to run mechanical lines. GPRS went out to scan and locate rebar mat in a quick, accurate and safe manner.
GPRS used a GSSI 1600 MHz Antenna to locate rebar and RD to locate live current in slab. All findings were marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for easy interpretation with pencil and red tape for a no-mess clean up. GPR was needed for this job to keep the customer from core drilling into or through rebar or live power conduit. Ground Penetrating Radar was successful for an accurate and safe placing of the cores without hitting reinforcement.
Ground Penetrating Radar Systems use safe and cost effective methods to conduct GPR investigations. Ground Penetrating Radar is safe to be around while concrete imaging is taking place, emitting no radiation unlike concrete x-ray. GPRS can perform concrete imaging investigations on large or small areas to locate post-tension cables, rebar, underground storage tanks, plumbing or electrical conduits.
