De-icing salt & grit salt

Day Group has developed its activities in this market over the past few years. The regularity of bad weather incidents has meant that for the past three years the UK has suffered regional shortages of material.

We are able to supply 'brown' or 'white' de-icing salt sourced from the UK and abroad. Bulk deliveries of grit salt are made from our strategically placed stockpiles to locations throughout England or Wales.

We offer a contract rate where advanced volume can be pre-purchased and held in stock, or alternatively we can price on a spot market rate.

Please be aware that there are times during the year when we experience extremely high demand for de-icing salt and therefore during these periods we may only be able to provide salt to customers with supply contracts in place.

The Products

White de-icing salt can come from several sources and we supply mainly a marine salt. The salt is of a high specification, enabling easy spread even if the material has been stored outside. Our white grit salt is used extensively in the retail and private sector as it is clean and leaves little or no residue on the ground.

Brown salt contains a higher level of insoluble impurities and will leave some residue. It is sourced exclusively from within the UK and has been used on the road network for many years.

Winter grit salt is a blended material using white and brown salt and a limestone grit. Grit salt is best used in an application where snow has settled and has been compacted, such as footpaths, driveways or any situation where snow is difficult to clear. The salt content will help to melt ice while the grit gives an improved non slip effect.
