GPR Used To Locate Post Tension Cables - Denver, Colorado

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, Inc. of Denver, CO was contacted by American Consumer Financial Network of San Jose, California to locate post-tension cables in slab on grade concrete. ACFN needed GPRS to scan and locate post tension cables and approximate depth to drill ½” holes down 3” in the slab. The holes were to place anchors to secure an ATM machine. The post tension reinforced concrete was spaced out enough to drill safely. GPRS went out to scan and locate post-tension cables in a fast and accurate manner.

GPRS used a GSSI 1600 MHz Antenna and a live current locator to locate the post-tension cables. All findings were marked with non-residue duct tape and permanent marker directly on the surface at the customer’s request for easy interpretation and no mess clean up. GPR was needed for this job to keep the customer from drilling into post tensioned cables. Ground Penetrating Radar was successful for an accurate and safe placing of the ½” anchors without hitting post tension tendons or drilling through the thick part of slab.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems has helped reduce cost by limiting the chance for expensive job downtime or setbacks due to structure damage, facility shutdown for severed utility line, or worker injury. Ground Penetrating Radar is also safe to be around while concrete imaging is taking place, emitting no radiation. GPRS can perform surveys on large or small areas to locate post tension cables, rebar/reinforcement layouts and underground storage tank locations.
