Core Drilling Through Concrete and Avoid Cutting Rebar for Enhanced Precision

Concrete core drilling is a crucial process in construction and renovation projects, offering a precise method for creating openings in concrete structures. Our core drilling operators understand the critical importance of precision in construction and renovation projects. Our rebar scanning service ensures the accurate detection of reinforcing bars (rebar) within concrete structures before initiating core drilling. This specialised service is designed to tackle the challenges presented by concealed elements such as rebar, effectively mitigating the risk of tool damage, preventing project delays, and safeguarding the structural integrity of the concrete without resorting to cutting rebar.

Key Features of Rebar Scanning


Core drilling for reinforced concrete provides essential groundwork for construction projects. At Aeon, we pride ourselves on:

    • Cutting-Edge Technology: Aeon employs advanced ground-penetrating radar (GPR) and electromagnetic (EM) scanning techniques to precisely locate rebar within concrete structures.
    • High Resolution Imaging: Our scanning technology delivers high-resolution images of the concrete subsurface, providing construction teams with exceptional clarity in identifying rebar positions.
    • Real-Time Data Analysis: The real-time data analysis feature allows construction teams to make informed decisions on the spot, minimising downtime and enhancing overall project efficiency.
    • Non-Destructive Testing: Aeon’s scanning service is non-destructive, ensuring it does not harm the structural integrity of the concrete.

Rebar Scanning Benefits

  • Preventing Damage to Rebar: By accurately identifying the location of rebar, Aeon’s Rebar Scanning service helps prevent accidental damage during core drilling, preserving the structural strength of the concrete.
  • Optimising Drill Paths: Construction professionals can optimise drill paths based on the scanned data, ensuring that the drilling process avoids critical structural elements. 
  • Cost and Time Savings: Accurate scanning reduces the need for repairs and rework caused by unexpected encounters with rebar, leading to significant cost savings and keeping construction projects on schedule.
