Professional Concrete Scanning & Investigation Service
Our professional concrete scanning service is available to commercial and domestic customers in the Gold Coast, Brisbane, Sunshine Coast and Ipswich areas.
South East Scanning has a 24 hour emergency response service to assist our clients when projects are time critical or when safety concerns require immediate attention.
We use state-of-the-art concrete scanning equipment to quickly scan and inspect concrete spaces.
Our non-invasive Ground Penetrating Radar technology can find steel reinforcement, post-tension cables, live power, conduit and many other items. This allows our clients to cut into
concrete surfaces with confidence, knowing that any hidden items have been identified. Concrete scanning helps avoid cutting into rebar or utilities that could result in costly downtime, injury or even death.
GPR Versus X-ray?
At South East Scanning we use the latest GPR (Ground Penetrating Radar) equipment.
In the concrete scanning and investigation industry X-ray has become a somewhat outdated technology for a number of reasons.
- X-ray is damaging to human health so operators need to set up an exclusion zone around the investigation site. This interrupts project progress and causes lost time for workers.
- X-ray produces a single image at a time, so progress can be very slow on larger areas. This also causes the process to become more costly.
- X-ray required access to both sides of the concrete structure being examined. This is because the transmitter and the received need to be on opposite sides to eachother.
GPR can scan large areas quickly. We can produce vertical sectional views of the test area.
South East Scanning uses the industry leading Proceq brand of GPR. Unlike traditional devices with pulsed GPR technology, the Proceq equipment enables us to detect features of various types and sizes with an unmatched depth penetration.
Our equipment utilises augmented reality to create 2D and 3D visualizations of GPR data and insights.
