<![CDATA[Why Ground Penetrating Radars Work & How They Can Save You Thousands]]> https://www.zenithsurvey.co.uk/blog/post/why-ground-penetrating-radars-work-and-how-they-can-save-you-thousands https://www.zenithsurvey.co.uk/blog/post/why-ground-penetrating-radars-work-and-how-they-can-save-you-thousands Wed, 22 May 2019 00:00:00 GMT Highly cost-effective, non-disruptive and versatile, Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) offers a prompt means of identifying underground objects. The advantages over a traditional, electromagnetic locator include GPR’s ability to see non-conductive materials such as plastic pipes and it accurately survey utilities buried up to eight metres deep.

Standard cable location tools may pick up ‘ghost readings’ caused by various environmental factors, such as high iron content, which may result in costly cable strikes. The GPR provides a comprehensive detection of obstacles underground, from Fibre Optic and HV cables to Streetlights, Drains and Culverts – meaning you can be safe in the knowledge that there will be zero utility strikes, ultimately saving you thousands.

How Does GPR Work?

Ground Penetrating Radar (GPR) locates underground objects by sending a signal into the ground, to then monitor the signal bounce back. Once the signal has been received, this is displayed on a screen for the operator to interpret, alternatively the data can be recorded for evaluation and processing later.

Instead of sending the signal through the air to look for objects, the GPR sends the signal into the ground to achieve the same objective. With traditional ‘CAT & Genny’ location tools, users are reliant on objects in the ground being metallic and having a detectable signal travelling along them. With GPR, as we are bouncing energy off objects, we are not restricted by the ability of the object to transmit a signal.

GPR has four basic components which combine to transmit a signal to bounce off objects.

Components of GPR

1. Transmit & receive unit

2. Control unit

3. Display unit

4. Power supply

The energy transmitted by GPR travels at different speeds through different substances in the ground. Radars measure the speed at which the signal returns and any changes in this speed are highlighted as some kind of change in the ground, these changes are represented as arches or ‘Hyperbolas’ on the GPR display. These ‘Hyperbolas’ deliver a 3D location of the targets we are looking for.

By using specialist software available with GPR, users can take the data and produce maps, depth slices and google earth images which can be geo-referenced with GPS. GPR has a very wide range of applications across many industries:



GPR has evolved over the past few years from a tool used by specialist companies and academics to a very user-friendly, effective and affordable resource for all.

In The field…

Our affiliate, Vp Equipment Specialists (ESS Safeforce, Brandon Hire Station, Groundforce, UK Forks and TPA), assisted a client on a pipeline project by providing an alternative method of ground surveying, making commercial savings and reducing downtime.

Employing standard cable location tools to survey the ground, the project was greatly delayed owing to various environmental factors. The high levels of iron content in the ground caused misleading ghost readings, which could potentially lead to workers inadvertently striking underground utilities such as high voltage (HV) cables at a potential cost of £10,000 and could be detrimental to a companies’ reputation, so an alternative solution was absolutely necessary. Following a HV cable near-miss review, a discussion with Vp plc took place to deliberate on alternative methods of ground surveying – ESS Safeforce stepped up to the challenge and introduced the GPR system as a potential solution.

ESS Safeforce provided the GPR system with an on-site familiarisation by our technical support, the company were then able to take the opportunity to train the relevant personnel for it to be successfully utilised on the pipeline. Three months into the project, the cost-effective GPR employment had effectively proven itself, avoiding ghost readings, detrimental obstacles and utility strikes.

Final words from the site manager:

‘The GPR is a great innovation and a proactive approach to preventing further damage that is giving site workers confidence on the job. It should’ve been rolled out years ago.’

Take your survey project to the next level; detect more and detect fast with our range of affordable Ground Penetrating Radar Systems, engineered to deliver a step change in capabilities with minimal change in work practices or training requirements.

<![CDATA[Too many workers on the job? Consider the benefits of upgrading to a One-Person Total Station]]> https://www.zenithsurvey.co.uk/blog/post/too-many-workers-on-the-job-consider-the-benefits-of-upgrading-to-a-one-person-total-station https://www.zenithsurvey.co.uk/blog/post/too-many-workers-on-the-job-consider-the-benefits-of-upgrading-to-a-one-person-total-station Wed, 06 Mar 2019 00:00:00 GMT Total Stations have become the pinnacle instrument for every surveyance or construction project. These multipurpose surveying instruments outweigh the pros of a traditional Theodolite, surpassing measurement capabilities based on Electronic Distance Measurement (EDM). They can measure distance, angles and elevation with a high level of precision, with the only downfall being the price and level of training required. Nevertheless, in recent years Total Stations have become far more accessible to the general market, with the cost of ownership and user-friendly convenience improving with the advancement of technology. So how does it get any better for a Total Station? The answer is robotic.

With a standard Total Station, such as the Leica Flexline series, two operators are required to work the machine – with one person at the instrument and one person looking with a prism. While this traditional way of working is reliable, Leica Robotic Total Stations running Captivate allow extensive functionality including image capture and link to points, coding and line work, DXF import and export and CAD backcloths. This allows the user to have all the information at their fingertips and a toolbox for collating data – hence the need for only one operator at a time.

Cutting-edge Robotic Total Stations deliver significant advantages over their predecessors. Users will immediately notice the benefits of upgrading to one owing to a number of factors.

  • Remote operation. Gone are the days of two-person jobs. Operators can be situated where the work is located instead of at the instrument, helping to prevent any mistakes. This means users can quickly perform far more calculations and inspections in less time – increasing profit and productivity.
  • Increased output. On average, you are able to survey and set out four times the amount of points with a Robotic Total Station.
  • Higher quality. The substantial increase in productivity results in increased inspection points, thus accommodating for better quality calculations and less rework. 
  • Solid investment. Users may be paying more initially, but the investment of a Robotic Total Station far exceeds the price tag. A higher productivity, with high quality results, cost saving on labour and little rework means greater satisfaction from the customer, an outstanding reputation and more projects under the belt. A Robotic Total Station soon pays for itself.

 When it comes to surveying instruments, set your sights high with a Robotic Total Station. They are supreme in terms of data processing, precision and reliability – no longer are results hindered at the mercy of human error. The only decision one has to consider now, is of course, which Robotic Total Station is right for you? Below are some of our best total stations we have to offer:


The Leica Viva TS13 Total Station

The Leica TS13 is a mid-range Robotic Total Station. It is a scalable instrument, powered by Leica Captivate field software and can be connected to a Leica CS20 Field Controller. Upgrade the TS13 at any time to benefit from additional functionalities.

<![CDATA[The Importance of Fall Protection - Staying Safe this Winter]]> https://www.zenithsurvey.co.uk/blog/post/the-importance-of-fall-protection-staying-safe-this-winter https://www.zenithsurvey.co.uk/blog/post/the-importance-of-fall-protection-staying-safe-this-winter Mon, 11 Feb 2019 00:00:00 GMT Fall protection is an imperative priority on every project that requires Working at Height, however, cold weather and icy conditions increase the risks of falls and injuries – here’s our quick guide for staying safe this winter!

Working on-site can be an extremely dangerous job, with high safety risks surrounding both you and individuals around you. When Working at Height or in hard-to-reach Confined Spaces, the safety risks soar – especially in cold, icy conditions. Safety improves quality, so it is essential that every worker has a thorough knowledge of the Health & Safety procedures and uses the correct equipment for personnel to carry out the task efficiently and safely.

At Zenith Survey, our specialist team can advise you on the correct procedures when working in these hazardous conditions on 07534 800 734, alternatively, take a look below at our quick guide to fall protection!


Harnesses & Lanyards – the first line of defence

Dangers surrounding Working at Heights are one of the biggest causes of personal injuries and fatal accidents in the workplace, as a result safety harnesses and lanyards are fundamental to an operative’s well-being.

One of the most important factors to consider when selecting your harness is picking one that is specifically designed for the operation. Wearing the wrong harness could result in injury – or in the worst case scenario, a fatality. Users need to observe their surroundings and work environment, choose a harness that is suitable for their industry and ensure that the equipment is in good working condition.


Is the user working on scaffolding?

Maybe the work involves powered access platforms or going down into hard-to-reach Confined Spaces? Differing harnesses and lanyards suit varying applications. When working on scaffolding or on a roof, it is imperative to include a harness and lanyard that comes with a large double action snap hook – providing increased strength and durability should a user fall. With powered access platforms, a work restraint system should be in place. A full body harness and restraint lanyard will limit movement, allowing for increased balance and stability whilst on the machine. In a Confined Space, visibility can become an issue. When sight is restricted, there is an immense increase to the risk of falling or slipping; selecting a harness with reflective yarn woven into the webbing will extend the line of sight and help create a safer work environment.

Another crucial step in determining the right harness is identifying the wearer. Most harnesses are universal in size, however, should a wearer be quite small in stature, a harness that is easily adjustable and lightweight would best suit their requirements.

Attachment points on a harness must be considered. The five attachment points on a harness are on the back, chest, two on the hip and one on the abdomen. The number of attachment points you require depends on the job you’re working on, different attachment points have their own benefits – workers can opt for one or two attachments for freedom of movement or four or five for working at an angle or attaching a descender device.

Comfort should also be a factor when working, padding and webbing allows for ease and dexterity on the job – so wearer’s won’t feel restricted and can concentrate on their work with content, which in turn lowers the risk of one rushing on a job and possibly falling as a result.

Working at Heights & Confined Space Training – tackle the winter months with skill

Working at Height and in Confined Spaces exposes an individual to a range of potential hazards, some of which result in fatalities. Having the right skills and knowledge to avoid accidental falls and injuries are beneficial for every worker, that’s why there’s a range of training courses to suit different work environments.

Our affiliate ESS Safeforce is able to tailor their Working at Height training courses to a particular industry or working method and will provide the essential skills and knowledge needed to manage Work at Height Operatives, operate a Safe System of Work or to effect a safe and swift evacuation or rescue. ESS Safeforce can assist you in choosing the right safety training solution for your requirements and environment every time, whilst providing on-going re-certification and Work at Height support.

Be Properly Prepared with Personal Protective Equipment (PPE)

Personal Protective Equipment (PPE) is absolutely paramount. “PPE is equipment that will protect the user against health or safety risks at work. It can include items such as safety helmets, gloves, eye protection, high-visibility clothing, safety footwear and safety harnesses. It also includes respiratory protective equipment (RPE).” (Source: HSE)

PPE is perfectly designed to ensure that the wearer is protected against any health or safety risks when on the job, whether it be for your head, hands, feet and beyond. The working environment is a battlefield and you need to be effectively armoured up – our specially designed products include safety helmets, hard hats, gloves, high-visibility clothing and safety footwear.
- Head Protection

Head protection is required in almost every industry that involves applications such as utilities, scaffolding and construction. They are critically important when Working at Height or in Confined Spaces, as those who fall are susceptible to head injuries, should personnel choose not to wear head protection. Our safety helmets have been designed with comfort and performance in mind, from standard safety helmets to full face shields.

For more information on our Head Protection range, click here.


- Protective Clothing

On these dark, winter evenings, it’s important to be visible – especially on the job. Protective clothing also shields the wearer from the elements owing to their waterproof material and seams. We supply a range of protective clothing with high visibility, ensuring safety procedures are followed on-site and the wearer has defence against cuts and bruising should they fall.

For more information on our Protective Clothing range, click here.

- Foot Protection

The safety footwear you choose can make all the difference when working in hazardous conditions, which is why we stock a variety of work footwear to provide full protection, whether it be against the elements to falling objects or ensuring oil and slip resistance.

For more information on our Foot Protection range, click here.


- Hand Protection
Workers need gloves that ensure comfort, safety and adaptability in the workplace. Ice causes slippery surfaces, such as hand rails and ladders, and gloves give the wearer the tough grip they need to avoid any slip or fall. Our hand protection range is not only great protection against the frosty elements, but they also provide the ultimate dexterity so workers can concentrate on the job at hand.
