Concrete Scanning Of Rebar For Key West Home

A contractor needed to locate the structural steel rebar inside the concrete columns of a home. The area that needed to be surveyed, using ground penetrating radar, was located on Ramrod Key near Key West, Florida. Thus they contacted specialists in Structural steel locating, GPRS. This is an ideal application for ground penetrating radar as rebar locating are GPR specialties. GPRS, LLC. in South Florida took the call and mobilized to the site.

On site, GPRS was able to identify the rebar in the concrete quickly and accurately. They marked them on the surface of the columns and provided a report explaining the results. GPRS then collaborated with the contractor, as to the depth and location of the rebar. The advantage to radar compared to X-Ray is that radar can locate the rebar at any side of the column and without dangerous radiation. The project was a success and why radar is “The New Way to X-Ray”.
