MALÅ Ground & Structural Radar Systems

Specializing in world leading MALÅ Ground & Structural GPR systems. Knowledge, expertise & experience we pride ourselves on. Based in Christchurch, we operate nationwide providing GPR instrumentation and solutions for multiple sectors and applications

Common Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) Applications:

  • Utilities: GPR can be used to locate and map the depth of water, gas, electric, communication lines, sanitary and storm sewers or unknown and abandoned pipes. GPR is also efficient for mapping the location of underground storage tanks and for pre-studies for horizontal directional drilling (HDD). Read More.
  • Concrete investigation: GPR can be used to locate and map the depth of rebar’s and other installations in Concrete GPR is well suited, for instance, to map the thickness of concrete slabs/elements, void detection and  concrete fracture mapping. Read More
  • Roads and Railways: GPR is widely used for mapping road and asphalt layering, as well as railroad ballast surveys. Further on GPR is suitable to investigate the internal structure of roads and railways and investigate the geological investigations prior to construction. GPR is also commonly used for bridge decks surveys and runway investigations at airports. Read More.
  • Archaeology: GPR is often used to map archaeological landscapes, sites, features and objects.
  • Geology: GPR can be used for stratigraphic mapping, structure analysis, cavity and sinkhole detection, depth to bedrock investigations, mapping of bedrock fractures, mining hazards etc.
  • Water: GPR is well suited to map lakes and rivers, for bathymetry investigations as well as investigating the river and lake floor structures. GPR can also be used for geological investigations for the detection of ground water.
  • Earth and concrete dams: GPR can be used to investigate the internal structure and layer of dams, as well as voids.
  • Tunnels and Mining: GPR is used for fracture detection, structural investigations and concrete thickness evaluation. Read More.
  • Environmental: GPR can aid in mapping hazardous waste, underground storage tanks and other utilities.  Further on it is suitable to use a GPR to map the bedrock surface for estimating flow directions and also for lake sediment surveys. Read More.
  • Military: GPR is often used for UXO (unexploded ordnance) detection, runway integrity analysis and clearing of trenching routes etc. Read More.
  • Ice and Snow: GPR is an excellent tool for structure analysis of ice and snow, as well as ice and snow thickness estimations and crevasse detection etc.

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) is widely used in the geophysical, geotechnical, construction and infrastructure sectors. The ability to be able to identify buried assets within concrete or soil along with other key features of concrete structures or subsurface environments, completely non-destructively, allows for a more cost effective and time efficient solution to achieving the desired results.

Many tasks, which may have previously been, time consuming, costly, or simply not feasible can now be accomplished quickly and efficiently using GPR technology.  This non-invasive technology produces enormous savings in construction, engineering, and maintenance worldwide.

Offering the broadest range of GPR products in the world, MALÅ delivers solutions for a wide range of applications including utility detection, road profiling, mineral exploration, archaeology, concrete investigations and many more.
