Ripa Concrete Scanning is the best in ground penetrating radar solution for commercial, residential and industrial applications.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) offers a non-destructive means of material analysis without coring or probing through solid surfaces.

We specialise in locating reinforced steel (rebar), post tension cables (stress cables), voids (holes), live wires, dead wires, pipes and other foreign bodies in the concrete or surface that is to be scanned.

Scanning is relatively quick and inexpensive in comparison to coring through structural steel (which can cost thousands to repair).

We service Sydney and most of NSW.

Service Locating/Detection of Services and Utilities

­Ripa Concrete Scanning also provides state of the art pipe and cable detection services. Our radio detection equipment can be used to trace all types of utilities (live or dead).

We specialise in finding:

  • Power
  • Water
  • Electrical
  • Telecommunications
  • Gas lines
  • Fuel lines

With a maximum depth of 6m it is easy to see why Ripa can locate your services quickly and accurately.

We can also attach a transmitter to your service which is useful when there are multiple services in the same area. This way we can locate the specific service regardless of how many utilities you have.

How long does a concrete scan take?

An average small scan of 1m2 can take between 45min-1hr to scan, mark and advise what has been interpreted by the GPR display, an e-mail of the report can be sent to the client for their records and personal analysis. (This will be done by one of our technicians in 1 business day.)

What is Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR)?

GPR is a quick, clean, efficient way to visually see what is beneath the surface of most solid surfaces. The GPR unit will transmit an electromagnetic signal into the area that needs to be analysed. This signal will return to the device based on the dielectric or conductive properties of the object within the area being scanned. The GPR unit will interpret the information and display on the screen what has been detected within the scanned surface.

How does Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) work?

GPR works by sending and receiving electromagnetic signals through a transmitter/receiver. The signal is then (usually) displayed on an LCD screen attached to the unit.

Does Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) emit any harmful radiation?

Many people question whether there is any danger for the person using GPR equipment, and the answer is no. Although “ground penetrating radar” may sound like a hazardous technique, it is extremely safe and emits roughly 1% of the power of a cellular phone signal.
