GPRS Uses Their Ground Penetrating Radar Technology for AK Fire Protection Systems

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems (GPRS) was recently contacted by AK Fire Protection Systems to use their ground penetrating radar technology to scan the concrete for rebar, post tension cables, as well as electrical conduits prior to approximately 100 anchor bolts into a post tension slab in Las Vegas, Nevada. Once on site, Ground Penetrating Radar Systems was quickly able to determine the concrete slab thickness, the location of the rebar and the post tension cables. The items located were marked directly on the concrete slab, so that the customer could work right behind Ground Penetrating Radar Systems and install the anchors as we finished scanning the concrete for post tension cables, rebar and electrical conduits.

Ground Penetrating Radar is ideal for precise location of rebar, post-tension cables prior to saw cutting and/or core drilling, mapping of electrical conduits, detection of sub-surface voids and utilities, and detection of underground storage tanks. Ground Penetrating Radar Systems can also perform concrete inspections.

Ground Penetrating Radar Systems provides GPR services throughout Nevada, including the greater Las Vegas and Reno areas. To contact the Las Vegas office please call (702) 573-9228, or to contact the Reno office call (775) 560-8915.
