concrete Scanning

Concrete scanning is the use of ground-penetrating radar and other equipment to detect materials or voids within a concrete slab. 

ORSCO (Pty) Ltd are experts in the field of concrete scanning, provide our clients with precise information regarding the structure, strength and composition of the structures as well as locating all conduits hidden within the concrete.

Concrete should be scanned before any destructive work is performed. This can include coring, drilling, cutting, and other activities which may compromise the concrete’s strength.

ORSCO (Pty) Ltd provides a fast, non-invasive method to gain accurate insights of objects below the concrete surface, even on a curved surface or column.

ORSCO (Pty) Ltd’s GPR increases safety by detecting rebar, post-tension cables, metallic and non-metallic conduits as well as current-carrying wires embedded in concrete.

  • Locate rebar, post-tension cables, metallic and non-metallic conduits embedded in concrete.
  • Create detailed scans of concrete floors, decks, columns, walls and ceilings to detect embedded objects before cutting or coring.
  • Detect voids beneath slab-on-grade.
  • Locate and map current-carrying wires using Power Cable Detector (PCD) technology.
  • 3D views, embedded objects, and multiple grid reports
