No more snow days: Keeping your school free from ice this winter

With Christmas rapidly approaching, there’s a good chance snow will fall when you’re least expecting it. That’s why it’s a good idea to protect your premises from hazardous conditions by stocking up on safety essentials from standard rock deicing salt to all-inclusive winter safety kits.
These can be ordered online and include equipment that will help keep your outside space safe. The bags of rock salt we provide, for instance, can be applied liberally to an array of different surfaces and will stop playgrounds, car parks and pathways from turning into ice rinks. It lowers the freezing temperature of moisture on the roads, so everything is less slippery and will certainly come in handy when the weather forecast is gloomy.
Our kits also contain a high-quality salt spreader that can be used to lay down the salt granules quickly and efficiently. If you have a wide areas to cover, they will help you get the job done promptly during the cold weather and will stop you from carrying large bags of salt from A to B. As well as being easy to handle, they also allow for accurate application and are a must-have for any school this winter.
One of the best things to note about our winter kits, however, is that they have been put together especially for you. This means you won’t have to sift through a range of products online wondering what to buy - and can have everything delivered to the required address. Not only will this save you time, but it will ensure you’re not left without adequate supplies during the dark months.
If you do decide to opt for one of our kits, we advise you to buy enough salt to last throughout winter. We supply 10 or 20 bags of grit with each purchase, but you have the option of buying more if you need it. Remember that a well-stocked grit bin is a reliable way to keep everyone out of harm’s way, so make sure you have enough de-icing products to hand.
One of the best ways to assess what you need is to carry out a risk assessment of your premises. As you know, this is a procedure required by law and should be reviewed before winter hits. Once you’ve noted all hazardous areas, you can make an order with just a few clicks of a button – it’s that simple.
