Brown and white gritting rock salt are sourced from two distinct sources; ancient seams of rock salt that were formed from long dried up sea beds and evaporated sea water or salt beds. Their different properties mean that they are suited to different purposes.
Brown rock salt can be employed to great effect in larger environments. From roads and pavements to car parks, brown rock salt has a distinctive appearance, and provides widespread grip for vehicles and pedestrians in times of icy temperatures.
Conversely, white rock salt is highly effective in providing a safe environment in pedestrian areas. The entrance and exit of commercial buildings can be difficult to negotiate in icy conditions. White rock salt melts ice quickly, leaving the environment safe to traverse with little or no residue.
