OUTCO are the experts at snow clearance from car parks, roads and pedestrian areas, ensuring our clients’ facility remains safe and compliant at all times. Snow clearance is different from snow removal, which involves removing the snow from a site completely. Our regional operational teams are responsible for local delivery of snow clearance and snow event management. Our regions are South-East, Midlands, South-West, North, Scotland, and Ireland. Each region has an allocation of vehicles and equipment relative to their portfolio of sites and the individual requirements. As part of our pre-season planning, we assign dedicated regional teams to specific local sites for the duration of the winter. This ensures site and service familiarity.
OUTCO’s managed grit bin solution provides strategically placed grit bins with a salt top-up service including the required tools. This service offers additional peace of mind ensuring your site is always safe and ice free. We also supply grit bins, shovels and scoops for outright purchase as well as grit bin refills as and when you need. As the winter season approaches, facility managers in the UK must take proactive steps to ensure the safety of their premises and protect the well-being of employees, visitors, and customers. Harsh winter weather, including snow and ice, can create hazardous conditions, making it crucial to have effective measures in place to combat these challenges. That’s where grit bins and salt from OUTCO come into play, providing essential materials at your facility for maintaining facility safety during the winter months.
OUTCO has the capability to spread or supply a wide range of traditional and specialist de-icing products. Available products range from traditional salt and grit types to low corrosive or eco-friendly products, all supplied in bulk or bagged. OUTCO de-icing products cater for all surfaces, including metal car parks and stairways, airport runways, train stations and sensitive ecological areas. For most standard de-icing situations, OUTCO uses sustainable white salt as our main de-icing agent, as this material is highly effective. However, we are continuously testing and evaluating bespoke de-icing treatments and new products.
