Questions About Our Salt Gritting Services
How do you know when to grit our premises?
We monitor the weather conditions using our road surface temperature forecasting tool. Gritting is automatically scheduled when there is a risk of ice, frost or snow.
When does your gritting contracts start and finish?
Our winter gritting season starts on 1st November until the end of March each year, although contracts can be extended at short notice depending on weather conditions.
What time do you start gritting?
We typically provide our services between 6pm – 7am at night.
What type of salt grit do you use?
We use pure white marine salt to minimise staining. Rock salt is mined from the ground and is a dark brown in colour which can stain. Marine salt is more effective than rock salt and we feel it’s benefits far outweigh the fact it’s slightly more expensive.
Reducing the risk of accidents
Accidents increase during the Autumn and winter months. One of the reasons for this is due to an increased risk of ice and snow. To reduce the risk of slips, trips and accidents, you need to assess the risk and manage it. Employing a salt gritting contractor can be a cost effective method of reducing the risk associated with ice and snow. Remember it’s an employers duty to protect the welfare of their employees and others people who might be effected by their business.
