Our expertly trained analysts can also detect voids within or underneath concrete slabs. As a safety leader in the industry, contractors, engineers, and government agencies have come to trust Penhall first for safe and precise scanning services.
Concrete roof being scanned for post tension cable or any other obstructions
Penhall was asked to scan an 8″ thick concrete on a roof in Fremont, CA. The client was looking for post tension cable along with any other obstructions before core drilling in two areas.
GPR scanning to locate all obstructions including rebar, tension cables, and conduit
In San Francisco, CA, we located existing post tension cables, conduits, and rebar within a 12″ thick suspended concrete slab. In addition, we scanned another area of 24″ x 24″.
San Francisco Zoo hired us to perform concrete scanning before setting anchors in birdcage
Penhall had the opportunity to perform concrete scanning for the San Francisco Zoo inside their birdcage. We scanned an 8″ thick concrete slab for obstructions in four 16″ x 16″ areas prior to their installing anchors.
To ensure accuracy, we use a number of GPR antennas
At another job location in Oakland, CA, we used ground penetrating radar to scan concrete at a site to avoid any cutting hazards. We used several antennas to ensure the accuracy of our findings so it was safe to move forward with electric saw work to create a trench.
