Concrete Scanning

Via non-intrusive means of analysis, our team are fully equipped to conduct a variety of comprehensive concrete scanning procedures to identify a range of sub ground elements.

What is Concrete Scanning?

Concrete scanning is the act of reading what sits under a concrete surface via the use of non-intrusive technology. This is done in order to identify whether there are elements sitting under a concrete’s surface or to obtain an understanding of a known element’s condition.

Concrete scanning is further able to identify whether anomalies such as voids or cracks exist under a concrete surface. All of these scenarios are then interpret by our leading industry specialists who are readily available to help you with any endeavours you have in mind.


Ground Penetration Radar

Our Ground Penetrating Radar services operate on a variety of difference concrete surfaces and structures. They likewise hold the ability to identify and analyse an abundance of different sub ground elements and objects as a means to give you a clear picture of what is going on underneath your concrete. 

As well as helping you identify the current conditions of your sub ground concrete, we are further able to assist you as we put into practice the remedial recommendations we have expertly suggested.  Before leaving the job site, we also make sure we communicate the best ways for you to maintain a healthy upkeep of your concrete going forward.

Rebar Corrosion Survey

Our comprehensive Rebar Corrosion Survey services utilise a range of non-intrusive methods in order to scan, identify and understand the current condition of the reinforcing bars under you concrete. Via industry leading technology, we are able to provide you with a concise and comprehensive report of exactly what is going on with your rebar.

We likewise extend our services and offer to place the recommendations we suggest into practice. We hold an extensive amount specialist knowledge and skill when it comes the why’s and how’s of your rebar corrosion.  We conduct rebar remedies from entirely replacing them or treating them accordingly.

    What is Concrete Scanning ?

    Concrete scanning is the process of using non-intrusive technological means in order to identify any elements or objects sitting underneath the surface of a concrete slab or structure. In addition, concrete scanning is further used to identify the current condition an object or element sitting under a concrete’s surface is to be found in.

    How does Concrete Scanning work?

    Concrete scanning is conducted via the use of non-intrusive technology which passes over the surface under question and emits electromagnetic rays of energy. If there is an element or object sitting under the concrete’s surface, these electromagnetic waves will bounce back towards the scanning instrument which provides information regarding the location and condition of this element or object.

    What can Concrete Scanning detect?

    Concrete scanning technology is used in order to detect subsurface objects such as concrete, pipes, metals, asphalt, cables masonry, and more, as well as changes in material properties and any voids and cracks existing below the surface under examination. It can do so on a plethora of mediums such as rock, clay, sand, soil, ice, water, pavements, structures and beyond. In addition, this scanning method is likewise able to identify and communicate the condition in which a sub ground element or object is found to be in (e.g. corrosion, etc.).

    How much does Concrete Scanning cost?

    Depending on the level of service you’re looking for, concrete comes in many different forms and with varying price tags. The technology can be used on a variety of different surfaces and to identified a wide range of elements across different sized surfaces. Overall, however, costs are likely to start from £600.

    To what depth can Concrete Scanning be done?

    The depth to which concrete scanning can be conducted is fully dependent on the surface it is aiming to undergo analysis on. On surfaces made of low conductivity materials, such as such as granite or dry sand, detection can reach depths of up to 100 feet (30 meters). On denser materials, such as shale or wet clay for example which often absorb scanning signals, detection is often limited to 3 feet (1 meter) or less.
