Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. of Phoenix, AZ. was contacted by a general contractor to locate PT cables in a residential house due to remodel of their bathroom. The homeowners were not aware that they had post tension cables running in there concrete, so they made the wise decision in calling GPRS out to investigate for a safe excavate. GPRS was quick to respond to this project to help the homeowners in a timely manner. GPRS was able to identify all obstructions in the bathroom and leading hallway so they could drill cleanly in the areas that wasn’t marked. The picture indicates our markings on the slab where we identified Post tension cables. All of this was accomplished by using a 1600 antenna. By having GPRS on site for the scanning, it allowed the homeowners schedule to stay on time with this project and kept them from hitting any cables in the concrete slab.
Ground Penetrating Radar is ideal on a busy construction site as well as a place of occupancy. GPR does not require evacuation of the area as does traditional x-ray concrete imaging. GPR emits no radiation and is completely safe to be around. Traditional x-ray is mostly done after hours; GPR can be done during normal business hours. All data findings are marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for the easiest interpretation of the scanning provided, with GPR there is no wait for developing films as with traditional x-ray. Only one side of the slab is needed for scanning so time and resources are much more ideal for tight schedules of projects. Ground Penetrating Radar is the new way to x-ray!
