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.

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.

 Greengates Builders Merchants Accrington, Lancashire also sell the White Salt which when used on paths can lead to less staining of indoor floors which makes this product ideal for use on paths leading to public buildings and homes. The white salt can be purchased in 25Kg bags and in bulk bags.
