How much time could road salt save you?
As the temperature plummets and Christmas creeps nearer, it’s a good idea to prepare for the cold months ahead. This might mean stocking up on snow shovels and winter car care kits, or it might mean filling your cupboards full of de-icing products.
Although buying and placing road salt might seem laborious, it could save you a lot of time when the weather takes a turn for the worse. Not only will it help to melt snow and ice that has settled on your pathways and steps, but it should stop your car from getting stuck in the driveway. This will help you get from A to B without being late and ensure you’re not stuck shovelling snow for hours on end.
By making the effort to de-ice your outside space, you will also help to keep everyone safe throughout the chilly snap. It’s all very well skating on a designated ice rink, but nobody wants to slip, slide and fall over when they are just trying to leave the house. If you run a business, you also have a duty of care towards your employees, so you must take precautions at work and home.
Here at PureSafety, we provide rock salt of the highest purity, which is suitable to use on an array of surface areas. It leaves no residue when applied and can be spread across the ground liberally whenever there’s a severe weather warning, or just a nip in the air. As it comes in 25kg bags, it’s also easy to store and can be used year after year, so your money won’t go to waste.
We also provide brown rock salt, which leaves a gritty residue on the ground for extra grip, as well as more expensive options like liquid ice sprayers. This is ideal for use on stairwells, alleyways and other areas where it might be difficult to spread de-icing salt and is a great way to keep public or frequently used areas safe during winter.
Whatever option you go for, you should think about finding a suitable storage solution for your products. As grit and salt needs to be kept dry, one of our weather-resistant bins might be ideal, or you might choose to pile the bags up on a pallet. We offer a wide range of options for you to choose from, so no matter what the size of your garage or stock room, you can find something suitable.
