Concrete Ferro Scanning

We use the highly accurate and effective Hilti PS 1000 X-Scan, the most advanced Ferro and Hilti scanning equipment available, to ensure you have comprehensive knowledge of your structure's hidden aspects before any drilling, coring, or design changes are made. It's crucial to know the exact location of pipework and other structural features before undertaking any drilling or changes. Our Hilti X-Scan equipment provides precise locating capabilities in multiple layers up to 300mm in cured concrete, ensuring you avoid important structural supports or vital pipework. We can scan walls, floors, and soffits. Contact our expert ferro scanning team at 01925471003 to arrange your nationwide survey and receive a no-obligation ferro scan quotation at your convenience.
