Salt is a crucial element in combating winter weather hazards. It helps to melt snow and ice, creating improved traction and reducing the risk of slips and falls. Grit can also be supplied, which works in a slightly different way, as can other high-quality products that are specifically formulated for effective ice melting on specific materials such as metal stairs and concrete. Our salt is carefully sourced to ensure optimal performance, helping facility managers create safer environments during winter weather
When the cold weather arrives it is important that sites have their own grit bins from which to perform emergency grit spreading on frozen paths, should the need arise.
