When it comes to professional services and solutions in concrete sealing, Sydney clients know to turn to the best. They know to turn to the team here at Slab-Tek.
As the name suggests, concrete sealing is the process of applying a protective layer to a previously laid section of concrete, which will allow it to withstand years of exposure to even the harshest weather conditions. This coating will also help to reinforce the concrete floor, meaning it will be better equipped to handle heavy traffic, large machinery and the weight of warehouse storage racks.
Unsealed concrete is easy to spot, with damaged or worn concrete often posing a serious safety risk to you and your employees.
Professionally sealed concrete not only lasts longer, it also looks better. Working with our skilled and experienced team means you can rest easy know that the job will be completed correctly. We will provide a comprehensive and effective service that will deliver lasting value for money and superior protection for your concrete.
Concrete Scanning Services is often requested to undertake surveys of various types of concrete floor slabs. A slab scan of a concrete floor can assist a structural engineer with information required to calculate load bearings and load capacities. Typically the following information is required:
The Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) system commonly used for slab scans, including the subject slab scan in Sydney, is a Mala CX12 machine with a 1.6GHz antenna. The 1.6GHz antenna would typically penetrate to a depth of 400mm in concrete and is best for detecting shallow features such as layers of reinforcement and any embedded utilities such as live power.
The slab is typically scanned on parallel line spacing perpendicular with scan lines at 200mm centres. A section of a slab can also be scanned with lines at 100mm centres to provide greater detail.
GPR excels in determining the general construction detail of floor slabs. The results of the slab scan conducted in Sydney were marked in-situ and presented in a report with sketches and annotated radargrams. Areas of additional reinforcement were detected and the position of these areas suggested they may be footings/beams.
