Winter Grit & Rock Salts


When the temperatures start falling it's time to bring out the Rock Salt! Although generally in the UK we are not known for our deep snow we do suffer from a generally damp climate which when coupled with freezing temperatures creates some very dangerous situations on roads and pavements. Luckily science stepped in a long time ago and discovered that Rock Salt has the effect of lowering the freezing temperature of water and thus preventing ice.

Mainland Aggregates are able to offer both Brown Rock Salt and White Marine Salt either in 850kg Bulk Bags or Loose by the tonne and regularly supply Rock Salt to hospitals, local authorities, schools and domestic customers.

Choosing whether to use White or Brown Gritting Salt is usually down to personal preference. White Gritting Salt generally leaves a cleaner residue and is favoured for use in doorways and pavements for cleanliness. Brown Rock Salt is generally used on car parks or roads where residue is not an issue and increased levels of residual grit for grip are required.
