Grit Bins

Grit bins are a key component to a comprehensive winter service plan. They offer a practical and cost-effective solution for combating snow and ice, reducing the risk of accidents, and keeping facilities accessible. Our OUTCO bins act as a central point for storing grit, making it easily accessible for spreading on pedestrian walkways, facility entrances, car parks, and other areas prone to ice accumulation.

Grit Bins

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. When the cold weather arrives it is important that sites have their own grit from which to perform emergency grit spreading on frozen paths, should the need arise. The last thing businesses want is to get caught out if the weather unexpectedly changes. Our bins are specifically designed to store salt on our customers’ sites.

We also supply shovels and scoops for outright purchase as well as refills as and when you need.  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 bins and salt from OUTCO come into play, providing essential materials at your facility for maintaining facility safety during the winter months.

Marine 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.

OUTCO provides two services, either purchase or managed: 

Purchased

OUTCO can supply customers with their own grit bins, shovels and other gritting accessories, and replace and maintain these throughout the season. We will also supply clients with a bin’s worth of salt.  To place an order for a top-up of salt, simply contact us as and when you need to. 

Managed

Many of our clients prefer the option of having a fully managed service. We will supply clients with all required bins, shovels and other gritting accessories, and replace and maintain these throughout the season. We will also remove the bin for customers at the end of the season. As part of our fully managed service, OUTCO will also keep grit bins topped up so that they never run out of gritting salt during the season.  

To order yours, simply contact us today and have your grit bin delivered directly to site.
