Avoid damage and costly repairs to services in concrete structures and underground cables, pipes and assets by using Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) for concrete slab scanning.

If you’re looking to cut, core or drill any concrete structure, it is essential to call on locating and scanning professionals to inspect and evaluate the area prior to starting any work. Using cutting-edge Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) equipment, any hidden features that may pose an element of danger will be identified.

GPR Concrete Scanner

GPR Concrete Scanner

Ground Penetrating Radar technology transmits and receives pulses of electromagnetic energy through the ground or concrete, penetrating concrete up to 300mm thick. Our state of the art GPR equipment passes over the target, sending a high frequency electromagnetic pulse which penetrates the surface.

The electromagnetic pulse is then reflected back off any object within the concrete slab to determine whether the area is safe for cutting, coring or excavation.

X-Ray Concrete Slabs

Scan and Locate offers comprehensive GPR concrete scanning services and expertise in Melbourne and throughout Victoria.  On the forefront of the industry, our non-destructive, radar based technology poses no health hazards to any personnel on site, the equipment is a safe and reliable method for concrete scanning purposes.
