Locating Post Tension Cables in Concrete via Radar
Post-tension cables provide instrumental reinforcing infrastructure, which is why it is essential to know the precise location of post tension cables when seeking to drill or cut into concrete. Precise location is exactly what you can receive through our Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) equipment.
With our GPR systems, you can get clear radar readings that can enable us to fully lay out the location and depth of all post tension cables in your construction area. This grid-creation process occurs in real-time—there is no waiting for x-ray film development.
Using radar to locate post tension cables is a time-saving, money-saving, injury-avoiding tool to use in any project involving cutting, boring or drilling into concrete. For example, contractors often call us to assist in locating cables before they undertake plumbing renovations, or installing conduits or floor drains.
If you are in the midst of a renovation or repair project, either commercial or residential, consider first calling on a detection service such as what you will find at C-N-I Locates, Ltd. Radar locating is fast, emits no radiation and provides high-resolution imagery to ensure you make no mistakes when cutting or drilling into concrete.
