We all know that things can get a lot more hazardous during the cold snap, but it can be hard to predict when a winter road will have dangerous ice. While surfaces that are wet or in the shade are more likely to freeze, other areas (including motorways) can develop black ice – so how can we keep safe throughout the winter months?
Well, road salt’s effectiveness is often taken for granted, but it’s a great way to melt snow and ice when the weather turns nasty. Of course, the government and local council should put down grit on popular routes, but there’s no reason why you can’t safeguard your outside space. PureSafety provides many winter products that will help you with this task, so it’s worth taking a look at our extensive range.
The grit we provide leaves no residue when applied and is of the highest purity, enabling you to use it as and when needed. As we supply this product in 25kg bags, it’s also easy to store and can be kept safe in stock rooms or cupboards year after year.
As winters can get extremely chilly in the UK, we also provide brown rock salt which again comes in 25kg bags. The difference is, this product leaves a gritty residue after application and gives extra grip to roads and paths. This makes life easier for drivers and pedestrians, as it stops wheels slipping and prevents people from falling over. It can also be scattered across the ground using a PureSafety grit spreader, helping you to save time during the nippy spell
If you want to buy in bulk, but are a little short of space, the bags can be stored on road salt pallets. These provide a handy base for your grit and will keep all products off the ground. We also stock weather-resistant grit bins that can be used indoors and out, and offer some of the best storage solutions of any health and safety supplier. Our containers come in a range of shapes and sizes and will help keep your de-icing products safe from the elements.
People have been urged to take extra care on the roads this winter, so do all you can to protect your living and working environment.
