We have invested in three demountable gritting units enabling us to offer a gritting service when the weather is frosty. Ideally we go out around midnight to cover sites before vehicles and people start arriving for work, but this is flexible depending on the requirements of the client and actual weather conditions. We currently carry out gritting services to health centre car parks, business parks and industrial estates. One of the units fits on a Transit making it more convenient for smaller sites such as car parks but each wagon carries a pedestrian grit spreader for those hard to reach areas
Grit bins can be provided and kept stocked. During periods of heavy snow we can send gangs out to clear snow from car parks and paths to enable the grit to work better on the frozen surface underneath. Salt works by lowering the temperature at which water freezes. It relies on the action of vehicle tyres over the ground to mix the salt in with the snow and ice, so requires traffic to be effective. We understand the risks of ice and snow and will work with you to provide a sensible, cost effective solution. Our gritting service is available throughout Lancashire and parts of Greater Manchester.
