Post-tension Cables Scanning & Location

Post-tension cable scanning in Newcastle

Post-tension cables are commonly used in concrete construction, allowing the builders to use thinner concrete slabs, while still supporting the same amount of weight. They also allow greater span lengths between support columns.

Due to their high tension, these cables can cause significant injury or even death if they are accidentally damaged during later renovations. Cutting through a post-tension cable will also compromise the integrity of the structure.

Hiring experienced concrete scanning technicians to locate post-tension cables minimizes the risk of injury and project delays. Talk to the experts at GPR today.

Latest Ground Penetrating Radar Technology

The best way to determine post-tension depth and cables location is with ground penetrating radar (GPR).

We use GPR to accurately locate and map post-tension cables, as well as determining critical information on the support structures, utilities and other obstructions.

GPR mapping offers immediate results and the findings can be marked directly on the concrete slab. Utilising GPR means you’re creating a safe work environment and protecting the structure of the property.

What is GPR used for?

Whether you’re drilling into a concrete slab to install electrical conduits or repairing a leaking drain pipe, GPR scanning can help project you and the structural integrity of your home or business.

We can use GPR technology to locate post-tension cables prior to:

  • Plumbing repair
  • Duct-work installation
  • Installing sprinkler systems or drains
  • Wedging
  • De-Stressing
