Snow Clearing

Gritting.com also provides a separate snow clearing service. This has been used to full effect in 2010 with weather conditions extreme compared with the last 5 years.

Ploughing the roadways prevents the build up of compacted, dense and deep snow. This can then be followed with a treatment of grit that will work on the cleared area. Gritting.com staff have strong operational training and experience with heavy and light duty snow clearing equipment allowing for a fast and effective service. Manual snow removal can also be included in the package which covers the more intricate parts of your site such as footpaths. A heavy investment has been made over the last five years due to a high interest in this separate service.

Professional Forecasting

We work closely with the MET Office, which prepares local weather reports for us on a daily basis. This means that we have access to the most accurate weather predictions, at any given minute, 365 days a year. As soon as we have a certified Ice or Hoar Frost warning, our gritting teams are dispatched to de-ice roads, footpaths and car parks before they open for business the following day.

Reports are cross-checked with meteorological institutions before we act on them. For example we will not grit simply on temperatures alone. We consider other important factors such as moisture, wind and cloud cover. This results in never gritting unnecessarily and saves our customers money.

The reports work to a Red, Amber and Green Alert system. Red stresses a high risk of extreme weather and conditions. Amber states how a moderate risk of extreme weather may be experienced with green highlighting calmer circumstances.
