Winter gritting and snow clearing

How winter gritting brings peace of mind during a changeable winter

As a property manager, it’s important to remember that even milder winter weather can still pose a threat to the safety of people on your site. While the temperatures may not be as low as previously experienced, it’s vital to stay prepared for the possibility of icy or snowy conditions and have your winter gritting and snow clearing requirements booked to cover you for every eventuality.

Statistics and historical data report that February is often the coldest month of the year for winter gritting

February night-time temperatures in the UK are typically near freezing. This occurs because the Earth’s Northern Hemisphere emits more energy than it receives (from the sun) for nearly two months after the winter solstice.

It doesn’t take much for the temperature to fall below freezing, especially at night and early hours of the morning. One of the best ways to ensure that your property is safe and accessible during winter is by using a professional and adaptable winter service provider such as OUTCO to provide your winter gritting services.
