As the experts in outdoor estate management, we understand and appreciate how specific locations may need to be managed differently. For example, we have extensive knowledge of the de-icing of rail platforms and over bridges where large volumes of exposed metal and ironwork are present. These surfaces do not react well to corrosion, and by using a low corrosive solution we have improved asset longevity while keeping them safe and compliant. We are committed to reducing our environmental impact and helping our partners to reduce theirs. Where appropriate we may use an environmentally friendly, low corrosive product as an alternative solution. To further support fragile ecosystems, OUCTO are experts in using de-icing agents that are non-toxic to animals and humans that are a great compromise between effectiveness and price.

As the leaves begin to fall, businesses of every size are faced with the annual challenge of leaf accumulation on their premises. Those red, brown and yellow tones of Autumn may look stunning and evoke dreamy thoughts of stirring family walks and mulled wine, but for business, falling leaves clog drains, leading to water damage and flooding, and accumulate on paths, car parks, and other areas, posing a slip and fall hazard.
