Ice Watch provides a nationwide winter gritting service to help avoid hazards for pedestrians and motorists associated with ice and snow. Using this service helps facilities managers and site owners provide a duty of care towards the general public and your employees by maintaining your sites to a high standard.
Local expertise, nationwide service
Extensive experience as gritting contractors, knowledge of regional areas helps Ice Watch calibrate equipment to deliver the exact amount of high quality marine salt required for specific sites.
The timing of gritting activities is informed by the analysis of local weather conditions by in-house experts. This means, for example, that Ice Watch will grit before the snow falls and after rainy or sleety weather, to reduce the risk of grit being washed away.
Many variables are taken into account including ground temperature, moisture levels and the duration of ice risk to decide whether or when the gritting service is required. Sites are serviced by local gritting operators local to you so they can get to you quickly when needed.
Dedicated gritting teams
Ice Watch gritting divisions are allocated sites so they develop knowledge of gritting coverage requirements, and familiarity with client security and on-site procedures.
