Rock Salt Available From Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire.

Winter isn’t over yet. We can still get snow and ice and it has been known for us to get snow in April, so have you got some Rock Salt left or did you use it all when it last snowed? Well we still have some supplies left but you need to get it now.

Some people may be concerned about the effects of Rock Salt on the environment however do not worry! Rock Salt is non-toxic and residual salt is gradually diluted and disposed of through natural processes.

Here at Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire we stock Rock Salt in 25Kg bags (ideal to keep in the car and at your back door) and in bulk bags.

Rock Salt is often used both resid­en­ti­ally and municipally for managing ice. Rock Salt is used to manage ice because brine which is a solution of water and salt has a lower freezing point than just ordinary water. Therefore by simply putting salt on ice this will cause it to melt. It is common for people to spread Rock Salt on their paths and driveways after a snow storm to melt the snow. It is also common for people to lay Rock Salt before a frost or snowstorm to prevent ice from forming.

Did you know that if you buy rock salt now and you don’t use it then it will keep until next winter and then you really would be prepared.
