Fast and Effective Ferro Scanning Services

There are many different ways in which ferro scanning can be used to ensure cost effective and non intrusive solutions that are time efficient and able to adapt the amount of equipment and detail of the scan to tell you whatever it is you need to know.

The data from ferro scanning can be analysed and presented in a number of different ways and can be tailored to suit all design parameters and provide instant diagnostic results through the cutting edge software used in all Hilti scanning equipment that we use. The scan itself varies in the level of detail and time taken and is fully adaptable to suit whatever information you need to know. Ferro scanning at full detail takes time and produces a large amount of information; for many client requirements, scaling down to a more simple approach is just as effective and far more cost efficient for them.

Quick and effective ferro scanning

We use the very best and highest rated Hilti ferro scanning equipment, including the PS1000. We'll quickly scan areas of concrete for reinforcement or rebar detection and alert the operator to potential obstructions within that can be very easily marked on the surface of concrete to guide boring and drilling. Ideal for a fast turnaround and able to be carried quickly with a minimum of equipment, our Hilti scanning equipment makes it quick and easy to know if you're able to drill into concrete at a particular point. 

Comprehensive ferro scan analysis

Our experienced ferro scanning specialists will utilise a wide range of Hilti scanning equipment and take around half an hour per square metre to ensure the most detailed and accurate readings possible. Our full scan service produces a huge range of data and 3D imaging that can be supplied to you on a memory stick and transferred to your site computers via bluetooth or even displayed right there on-screen for instant diagnostics results.

This full ferro scan analysis is ideal for producing detailed reports with full 3D imaging and is often used for the most critical parts of a construction when clients want to look in intense detail at a small section of wall, floor or other surface.

Pre-cast testing

Our pre-cast testing service is becoming increasingly popular with clients in the nuclear industry, where our analysis is used to test pre-cast concrete units for cracks, holes and other issues affecting structural integrity. Ideal as part of ongoing quality control or during the safety testing of concrete that's being utilised in safety-critical environments, our ferro scanning equipment is adaptable for use on all concrete structures.
