At 2M, we specialize in using ground penetrating radar (GPR) to non-intrusively and non-destructively scan concrete walls, ceilings, and floors to determine what is inside. Using high frequency GPR antennas, we can detect metallic and non-metallic objects and features at depths of up to 24 inches (depending on conditions).
Our GPR concrete scanning services provide instant results on site and the scanning data can be saved digitally and reviewed off-site to create detailed reports, including high resolution rebar mapping. We also sketch out our findings on the concrete or masonry surface to help prevent costly structural damages.
Our services are used by professionals in the concrete and construction industry to locate rebar and tendons before cutting, coring, or drilling, as well as to map rebar distribution, measure slab thickness, detect deterioration, and discover voids.
At 2M, we follow a three-step process for our scans. First, we assess the work space to determine the concrete’s durability and subsurface condition. Then, we conduct the scan, noting the position of each object as we go and creating a map of the area. Finally, we photograph each located object and, if requested, develop a 3D model that fully maps out all detected items.
GPR concrete scanning is safe and effective, and can detect both conductive and non-conductive materials. It can be used on vertical surfaces and ceilings, and is frequently used to locate rebar in concrete columns and walls, as well as to scan the bottom of a floor.
If you need to know what is inside your concrete before cutting, coring, or drilling, contact 2M to schedule a consultation. Let us help you avoid costly delays, cost overruns, and damage to your reputation in the industry.
