Expert concrete scanning and service locating

MACS specialises in premium concrete scanning and service locating services that ensure the integrity and safety of your construction projects.

Using advanced ground penetrating radar (GPR) technology and imaging systems, our concrete scanning services provide accurate and non-destructive insights to the composition of concrete as well as anything that may be hidden within or beneath it. Concrete scanning is a crucial step to take before you cut, core, or drill into a concrete structure to identify any potential hazards that could prove costly and dangerous.

Service locating refers to the process of identifying and mapping out the locations of mains and service in outside areas, for piece of mind while excavating or other civil construction needs. Using electromagnetic induction, advanced GPR technology and 10+ years’ of experience, our locating services provide accurate and non-destructive insights to your work area.

Our team is committed to delivering reliable data, allowing you to make informed decisions, prevent costly mistakes, and enhance project efficiency. Our services include:

Opera Duo GPR

Main features include:

vLoc3-Pro Utility Locator

The vLoc3-Pro utility locator introduces new innovative tools for locating buried utilities, assuring damage prevention while gathering information for analysis. With two sets of screened 3D antennas, signal distortion is easily detected and displayed on the bright full color display. Along with classic locate screens, the vLoc3 series locators offer new locate perspective screens of Vector Locate for fully automatic non-walk over locating, Transverse Graph showing both peak and null simultaneously providing immediate measurement of signal distortion, Plan View showing the relative orientation of the cable at any angle, and a new graphical Sonde screen with guidance arrows leading to the sonde location even when it is vertical.

The highly user configurable vLoc3 series contains eight passive locate modes, fault-find mode, SD (showing direction of outgoing current), and a range of configurable frequencies from 16Hz to 200 kHz. Visual and mechanical vibration alerts can also be configured by the user providing warnings for shallow depth, overload, overhead cables, and excessive swinging. Plug-in-play options for the receiver include optional Bluetooth module usable with external GPS devices and MLA (marker locator adapter) to locate buried markers.
