GRITIT Footpath Services
Footpaths matter. Not only is a routine maintenance programme needed to ensure that your footpaths are kept clean and level, free from defects and to prevent vegetation from causing an obstruction, but signage should be used to warn drivers or pedestrians if any road shoulder is commonly used as an informal footpath.On top of that, there's the issue of ensuring that your footpath is safe for pedestrians during the winter months.
GRITIT will ensure that your footpath will always be ready to use without you needing to order snow clearance or gritting at the last minute. Our services are time-tested against some of the worst and most unpredictable British winter weather.
Why use GRITIT?
“ ...GRITIT's mission is to ensure that your critical operations are never interrupted, that you continue to maximize the value of and revenue from your infrastructure, and that the state of your infrastructure never causes you any reputational damage or legal claims”
Jason Petsch, CEO
GRITIT uses specialist transport forecasting services and location specific models to automatically trigger service on our own control software. Close monitoring of road surface temperatures and gritting before the ice can form on your footpath is a tried and tested solution for the highest levels of risk management. GRITIT has the largest dedicated private fleet of gritting vehicles in the UK, with trained and accredited local teams that know and understand your local geography.
Pro-active gritting means there will be far fewer times when a footpath needs to be de-iced as the salt is spread before road temperatures reach zero degrees when water freezes. Additional call outs can quickly deal with any ice that has formed from escaped water or where later heavy precipitation has washed away the salt. If it is an especially cold night and your footpath has already been gritted once, then GRITIT will come back just before opening and ensure that we also de-ice after a hard frost in the morning. Choose gritting as a service or on-demand gritting. All part of the great GRITIT service. Footpaths are one of the 'front of house' areas that tend to require a higher level of presentation than perhaps the back of the shed. We recommend white salt which doesn't leave a mess so you don't need to go and clean it up afterwards. Brown salt works too - better grip - but it tends to looks a little bit scruffy afterwards.

Footpath Grounds Services
If you're already a gritting or snow clearance customer of ours, our knowledge of your grounds means we're ahead of the pack when it comes to knowing your grounds and knowing what to do. Clearly a footpath should look smart and well maintained, so if you need a local someone who already knows your site. talk to us about our grounds services. Everything from lawn mowing to hedgecutting, GRITIT has the local manpower to service all your grounds maintenance needs.
You can't exactly have a well presented footpath which has potholes in it, so if you have a footpath pothole problem, talk to GRITIT! Fix the small pothole now rather than face a large tarmac repair job later.
