Our nationwide operations cover a diverse range of clients, we are experienced in meeting complex requirements including security, access and timings. Our Quality Management System has been developed and implemented to ensure we meet and exceed the requirements of the Winter Maintenance Code of Good Practice. The British weather is notoriously changeable and risks from ice and snow are best assessed by localised short range weather forecasting. It is difficult for businesses and organisations to monitor the weather in depth to action gritting within timescales required to manage the risk.

With our gritting service it means that you do not have to monitor weather forecasts 24/7. Ice Watch receive postcode specific weather forecast information for your site and employ an in-house meteorologist to monitor changing conditions using our bespoke live weather radar system. No labour costs for out of hours gritting and snow clearance. There will be no equipment or salt to buy and store and no training costs – so you save time and money.
