Why Choose Ground Penetrating Radar?

Ground penetrating radar scans help produce real-time results. After a ground penetrating radar scan is complete, a field technician is able to send off the image to their supervisor to clean up the picture. After the image is cleared, the structural engineer and our clients can look over the results. Our scans are able to reach deep depths, are utilized without any radiation, and are a lot safer than X-rays. Ground penetrating radar is an excellent option for companies that don’t want to disturb the natural beatify of their entire property.

What Does Ground Penetrating Radar Detect?

Ground penetrating radar detects an extensive range of items and is also able to look through concrete slabs. Ground penetrating radar detects rebar, metal, stress cables, and more. Ground penetrating radar can also detect concrete slabs along with other natural materials through the use of imagery. Ground penetrating radar can also be implemented on one side of your concrete slab without requiring access to different sides of the concrete slab as well.

The Pros of Ground-Penetrating Radar

There are pros to using our ground penetrating radar. It is cost-effective and a non-invasive way of looking over a construction site or other area that has to be imaged before and during the construction process. You do not have to dig or disturb soil while you are using ground penetrating radar since it is able to detect different surfaces. Since our radar doesn’t use radiation, it is safe for use in public space and for those to be around it during the surveying process. It is also able to detect objects quickly and underground irregularities, providing everyone at G&M with a chance to collect data for your worksite.
