Post-Tension Locating For Plumber in Florida

A plumbing contractor needed to core drill in a post tension slab in West Palm Beach, Florida. The concrete area that needed to be scanned / x-rayed, using ground penetrating radar, was a pre-existing concrete slab and was known to be a post tensioned slab. Thus they contacted the concrete specialists in post tension cable locating, Matt Rankin of GPRS. This application, post tension cable locating, is a common job for GPR. GPRS, LLC. in South Florida took the call and mobilized to the site.

On site, GPRS was able to identify the post tensioned cables, quickly and accurately. After scanning the concrete, we marked the post tension cables and rebar on the surface. GPRS then collaborated with the contractor, as to the depth and location of the post tensioned cables. The advantage to radar compared to X-Ray is that radar can locate the post-tension cables from the surface of the ground, without dangerous radiation. The project was a success and why radar is “The New Way to X-Ray”.
