Reduce Risk, Increase Worksite Safety & Eliminate Avoidable Costs On Your Worksite
What is Concrete Scanning?
A non-destructive scanning method of revealing hidden electrical cables, water pipes and communication cables. Locating services, structural steel and other materials prior to cutting, core drilling or removal of concrete provides an important safety net for both the operator and the client.
Scanning prior to invasive or destructive working with concrete is highly recommended as it provides peace of mind and can prevent the massive costs and potential personal injury associated with destruction of essential services.
