The equipment we use for concrete scanning in Brisbane

South East Scanning utilise the most innovative and advanced technology to conduct our concrete scanning services. Unlike traditional methods of concrete scanning via x-ray, we use ground-penetrating radars (GPR). This is more efficient and allows us to scan the surface without the need for two access points.

Why choose GPR over x-ray for your concrete scanning in Brisbane?

There are many benefits to choosing GPR over X-ray to scan concrete. Below are a few reasons why GPR is a superior method:

  • Specialised PPE is required to use X-ray which requires a lot of extra precautionary measures to be implemented. GPR on the other hand doesn’t and is completely safe to workers and those near the job. This can save a significant amount of time.
  • X-ray only has the ability to produce a single image at a time which can make the process drawn out and more tedious than it has to be.
  • Only one access point is required to scan the concrete.

Benefits of concrete scanning in Brisbane

Pre-scanning concrete before you cut, core, drill or demolish it is a crucial step that should never be forgone. Failing to do so and proceeding without a full understanding of what is embedded in the slab can have disastrous consequences.

Ensure everyone is safe

By completing concrete scanning before undertaking any work, all workers know where underlying hazards are located, allowing them to proceed safely.

Keeping your equipment in tip-top shape is crucial to keeping the job on track and avoiding unnecessary expenditures. Concrete scanning can help to prevent equipment damage from hitting embedded objects.
