Digsafe NQ has a range of specialist equipment that uses frequency to locate the underground utility services and cables. Our expert personnel construct a grid pattern and cross-check it with our ground penetrating radar equipment (Rycom 8879 PLS Locator | Noggin Gold 250 Smart Card) to get a complete picture of the site. Once scanning is complete, we will confirm depths and locations of all utilities and cables if required through potholing.

Samark is the foremost Cairns cable and utility locating service providers to have professional concrete radar equipment, in the form of a Conquest PCD Enhanced System. This specialist equipment allows us to map steel and services in concrete before you start drilling / excavation. Radio waves are used to locate objects within the concrete and the equipment can provide analysis at different depth slices up to 500mm.
