Post Tension Cables detection

Post-Tension Cable Characteristics

Post-tension (PT) cables are used in concrete construction to allow thinner slabs and greater span lengths between support columns. These cables, composed of steel wires inserted into a plastic sheath, are subsequently “tensioned” and grouted after the concrete is poured.

Concrete Assessment

Locate conduits, post-tension cables, and rebar/reinforcing wire mesh, detect current carrying cables.

Have a question that needs an answer?

GPR is now widely used for assessing the interior of concrete structures. When cutting and coring for renovation and repair, avoiding reinforcing bars, post-tension cables and embedded conduits is a priority. GPR can sense both metallic and non-metallic features making it a versatile imaging tool. Construction records for many buildings are not readily available and construction often differs from design resulting in GPR being the only way to confirm what is there.
