For safety reasons, it is crucial to locate the exit point before drilling or coring through concrete. It is important to know what is on the other side of the wall, floor or ceiling in order to avoid a dangerous scenario such as a gas line at the anticipated exit point. In some cases, the planned exit point may be where a beam, electrical service box or other fixed structure is located. This would result in drilling multiple holes in order to find the correct exit location and angle.
Those involved in the construction and remodel industries know that exit point location is necessary anytime it is important that the hole being drilled from one side, exit in a specific point on the other side. The use of manual measurements is both time consuming and prone to errors. These errors and drilling pilot holes cause unnecessary damage and destruction.
