How Does Gritting & Salt Spreading Work?

Salt is most commonly used in gritting and salt spreading services. It works by lowering the freezing point of water, so ice cannot form as easily. Salt will also help to melt any existing ice, making it easier to remove using either a snowplough or shovel. However, salt is typically corrosive to metal surfaces and can harm vegetation if applied to excess. Therefore, to reduce the environmental impact of salt, a mixture of salt and grit is used. This grit can help provide traction for vehicles and pedestrians and reduces the overall amount of salt needed.

Snow Ploughs

We can also provide effective slow ploughing solutions with our state-of-the-art snow ploughs. Our team ensures a precise and safe approach to road maintenance, clearing snow and ice while minimising any potential damage to the road surface.
