GPR Used To Locate Post-Tension Cables

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, LLC. of Colorado was contacted by a construction company located in Denver, Colorado to locate post-tension cables. The company needed GPRS to scan and locate reinforcement so that they could safely cut the concrete for electrical and plumbing trenches. GPRS went out to the job site and scanned & located the tension cables with ground penetrating radar.

GPRS used a GSSI 1600 MHz Antenna to locate post-tension cables. All findings were marked directly on the surface at the customer’s request for easy interpretation with black permanent marker. GPR was needed for this job to inform the customer where they could saw cut so they can safely place trenches. Ground Penetrating Radar was successful for an accurate layout of post-tension cables.
