Americore technicians use state of the art radar equipment to scan a range of surface types. The radar units are capable of determining the location and depth of objects embedded in the surface.
In addition, the equipment can detect voids beneath a surface or the deterioration of concrete.
Scanable surfaces can vary from drywall to marble; however, the most commonly scanned surfaces are concrete and earth.
- Determine the location and depth of reinforcing steel
- Determine the location and depth of post tension cables
- Determine the location and depth of electrical conduit prior to saw cutting or core drilling
- Locate voids under slabs
- locate deterioration in slabs
- Determine the location and depth of underground utilities
- Determine the location and depth of underground storage tanks or buried drums
- Determine the location and depth of unmarked grave sites
- Locate voids underground
- Reports of what is located under the surface
- 3D image reporting capabilities
- Americore technicians complete comprehensive training. Each technician undergoes thorough instruction regarding the operation of the equipment, as well as interpretation of the data.
- Americore technicians complete exhaustive safety training. All Technicians are OSHA certified, and complete mandatory monthly safety classes.
- Ground penetrating radar does not use radiation. Thus, there is no need to clear the area being scanned.
- Set up time is nearly immediate.
- Data is gathered quickly and results are produced immediately.
- Ground penetrating radar services are cheaper. Because set up time is minimal and data can be gathered quickly, GPR services are less expensive than radiology.
- Ground penetrating radar can scan hard to reach areas.
- Thousands of square feet of area can be scanned in one day and any size area can be scanned and the equipment only has to be set up once.
