International Inspection performs subsurface interface radar (SIR) services for construction, commercial property, and geophysical clients who need to detect any features beneath the surface of an area of concrete. We provide SIR services to help ensure the safety of personnel working on concrete specifically; by locating subsurface elements like rebar and PT cables, our technicians can map them out so that workers don’t hit them while drilling, sawcutting, or coring. Unexpected encounters with subsurface elements can lead to damaged equipment, lost productivity, cut utility lines, and worker injury.
Since no radiation is required to perform a radar survey, this is an excellent alternative to x-raying in highly occupied facilities such as hotels, hospitals, airports, etc.
SIR can be utilized to locate buried objects such as pipes, tanks, and utility lines.
