Ice and snow create hazards for pedestrians and motorists alike. Having a winter gritting service in place means that you can avoid many of these problems. We like to work together with our customers to provide a duty of care towards the general public and your employees by maintaining your sites to a high standard.
With our extensive experience as gritting contractors and knowledge of regional areas, we know that no two sites are the same; meaning all site requirements will be bespoke. A clear understanding of environmental variations enables us to calibrate equipment to deliver the exact amount of material required for the conditions at the time action is taken. Resulting in an increased or decreased amount depending on the weather conditions ahead, we use high quality marine salt to ensure even coverage.
Our strategic process is dependant on the weather conditions we have analysed in our reports. This means we can grit before the snow falls and after rainy or sleety weather, reducing the risk of grit being washed away.
We have a trained team who interpret weather data as it comes into us. The in-depth weather forecasting from our providers allows us to advise when there is a risk of ice. The gritting service is put into action to prevent ice forming, so we grit sites at the optimum time indicated by forecasts to maximise the effect. We take into account many variables such as ground temperature, moisture levels and the duration of ice risk to decide whether or when the gritting service is required. Sites are serviced by gritting operators local to you, which means they can get to you quickly when needed.
Our gritting divisions are dedicated to your site each and every time, resulting in the same team gritting your site on each occasion, enabling our colleagues to build up knowledge of the site’s requirements regarding gritting coverage, security requirements and on-site procedures.
