Gritters are again about to become a familiar site on our roads during the winter months but many of us don't really know how Winter Gritting or for some spreading De-icing Salt works.
GRITIT™ is the largest and first company in the UK to specialise exclusively in winter gritting and snow clearance. This generates more than 80% of our turnover and thanks to this focus we have built an enviable reputation for providing market leading winter solutions. Today we work with some of the UK’s leading companies, helping them to keep their sites, safe, compliant and fully operational during the winter months.
Our fixed cost services include proactive temperature-activated winter gritting, car park, footpath and facility snow clearance, both manual and mechanical, with a 24/7 operations centre backed up by full liability protection. We also provide grounds maintenance, pothole repairs and environmental services during the rest of the year.
When everyone else is very sensibly asleep, GRITIT's professional winter gritting operatives own the night, to make sure your facility is safe and always protected from snow and ice.
Nationwide gritting operator GRITIT is the market-leading gritting and snow clearance operator with regional operatives, armed with regional knowledge, and able to cover any part of the UK
Although some countries use very country-specific methods and apparatus, gritting around the world is carried out in largely the same fashion. Globally, the highest priority for gritting and snow removal tends to be urban routes, and most cities in countries that have regular snowfall maintain a fleet of gritting and snow clearing vehicles. Gritters are the first vehicles to be dispatched when snow hits, working the road for public safety and to keep the roads open.
