Ferro Scan Applications

As an ideal way of preventing drilling into hidden pipework and other materials, ferro scanning is rapidly becoming a versatile option for commercial and industrial clients across Kent, London and the rest of the UK.

Originally utilised in specifying and construction to identify hidden objects and potential issues within concrete, through rebar detection and reinforcement location, ferro scanning is a very effective and reliable way of guiding planned drilling and sawing work. While this has remained the primary function of a scan, it can also be utilised for a range of other useful specifying services, including identifying the thickness of a concrete slab and searching out cracks in pre-cast units, and many clients use ferro scanning as part of their quality control and maintenance efforts to ensure structural integrity.

When you're working on structural projects, it's absolutely vital that you know exactly what is beneath you. That's exactly what ferro scanning does. We will go through pipework detection and ensure that you know where there are holes or cracks within cured concrete to avoid any devastating issues in the future. Call us today on 01474 822785 to go through your own ferro scanning requirements with our specialist team.

Utilising their extensive experience, our professional and fully qualified technicians will interpret the ferro scanning data to identify a range of objects and information about any given area of concrete, no matter if in walls, curved structures, floors or columns. Key benefits include the detection of;

  • Structural supports, tendons and rebar reinforcements
  • Metallic, non-metallic and plastic pipework and conduits
  • Glass fibre cables
  • Cracks, faults, wood and voids in cured concrete
  • Slab and screed thickness

We predominantly work with specifiers like architects and engineers that are looking for hidden obstructions within concrete; however, we also work regularly in demolition, engineering, refurbishment and on structures like nuclear power stations who regularly carry out safety checks on the integrity of their concrete structures. Our ferro scanning system is very easily employed for similar checks on all types of bridges, buildings and tunnels.
