Rebar Locators and Cover Meters

Rebar Locators, Metal Detectors, and Cover Meters are effective and easy-to-use tools. They are used for detecting and locating reinforcing bars, welded wire mesh, metal wall ties, and other such metal objects in concrete. Determining the location of reinforcing steel and subsurface metalwork is essential to help avoid damage to reinforcing elements when cutting or coring.
