It may seem that summer has only just finished and it is far to soon to be thinking of snow and ice but you really do need to be prepared. During the winter months of 2009 the Met Office did not advise people soon enough of the Sevier snow conditions which hit all parts of the UK. A lot of people the Government included were caught out and were not prepared for the snow and ice which hit Britain earlier than usual. Salt supplies ran dry and Local Council’s got first chance of any that came in from abroad.

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.
