It is highly likely that when you begin a new construction or renovation project, you will need to need to cut or drill through a large slab of concrete. Sometimes you have no idea what is underneath. The risk of unintentionally hitting rebar, electrical conduits, or post-tension cables during the cutting or core drilling process is high, and that cost for those mistakes can be restrictive.
These unreasonable constraints on already slight budgets create chaos to your already tight schedule. Also, it can cause safety hazards for your employees. Our well-trained, skilled, experienced technicians can respond quickly to service requests, especially when your need for concrete scanning is a last-minute discovery.
The result is professional, accurate scanning – risk mitigating and safe environment for your employees.
REINFORCING STEEL DETECTION
Vault Concrete-trained technicians locate Rebar and post-tension cables using scanning technology.
Our technicians find the Locations where Reinforcing steel is indicated on the work surface to ensure safe and efficient drilling that will preserve the integrity of the structure and reduce the need for repairs or patching. Doing this helps our clients conduct core drilling without accidents, injuries or delay. GPR scanning is also useful when preparing for a renovation that includes electrical outfitting, plumbing, fire protection services, drain installation and duct work.
LOCATING EMBEDDED ELECTRICAL SERVICES
When core drilling or saw cutting in commercial and industrial locations, accurate detection of electrical conduits is essential for preventing safety risks, power outages, and costly damages. Vault Concrete provides two distinct but different scanning services in this area: Elevated concrete slab scanning and slab-on-grade locating. Raised concrete slab scanning involves detecting embedded electrical conduits before core drilling a hole through the plate.
