Past and current sounding services for locating defects in elevated substructure elements such as caps, piles and deck undersides required lane closures and snooper trucks to perform soundings. But our infrared technologies can perform more accurate, more detailed, faster and safer inspections through thermal visualization. Subsurface defects become thermally visible during periods of thermal flux. With GS Infrastructure infrared technologies, these thermally visible defects in concrete structures can now be detected from up to 125’away.
Ground penetrating radar is a non-destructive method used to scan below the surface to detect objects and distinguish between subsurface layers using high-frequency radio waves. A GPR transmits electromagnetics energy into the ground, the energy reaches an object or material boundary (subsurface layer) with a different dielectric constants and reflects or refracts energy back to the surface where multiple antennas record the changes in the return signal.
Our HD Visual tool is among the highest quality on the market for providing the photos you need for evaluating surfaces and structures. Our HD Visual can be run at speeds up to 50 mph while gathering quality images, saving collection time and money.
