GRITIT Road Services
Roads are the vital arteries of the nation, and the private roads surrounding your office, factory, industrial, retail or housing constructions are no exceptions. Without open roads you have no staff, no customers and no economic activity. GRITIT gets the importance of roads and indeed, keeping your roads open is sufficiently important that even our CEO will be out gritting your roads when there's a winter storm and it's all hands on deck.
GRITIT is always prepared for dealing with the winter weather on your roads. Our extensive gritting operation is standing by, and many tonnes of grit is available for your roadway gritting needs. We have the local stocks of raw materials, vehicles and manpower to get the job done for you. Nothing infuriates Britain like roads that have not been gritted, and nothing delights Britain than seeing the private roads of housing estates, factories, industrial and retail parks gritted and open for business, even when it's chucking it down outside.
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 road 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 who know and understand your area and the local knowledge that makes your area unique.
Pro-active road gritting means there will be far fewer times when the road 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 road has already been gritted, then GRITIT will come back just before opening and ensure that we also de-ice after a hard frost in the morning. Choose road gritting as a continuous service or choose on-demand road gritting - your call. All part of the GRITIT service.
Roads are not always one of the important 'front of house' areas that require a high level of presentation, so whilst GRITIT might recommends white salt for high presentation roads (which doesn't leave a mess so you don't need to go and clean it up afterwards), brown gritting salt works too - better grip - but it tends to looks a little bit scruffy afterwards and requires an operative to go out and clean it up.
Road Snow Clearance
GRITIT's pedestrian and mechanical clearance services ensure you have safe forecourts when you open for business and throughout the day. Or, 24/7 for critical roads in heavy use - just tell us what you require.
Road Tarmac Repair
In Autumn, road tarmac repair is at its annual peak. Potholes and road imperfections are at a higher risk of forming due to a combination of the cold temperatures, poor weather conditions, and heavy traffic which is why GRITIT's advice is to get these jobs done in the summer months, as they'll only get worse every winter. Even on public roads potholes are on the up - the RAC recently reported a 31% increase in pothole-related faults attended by its patrols in the second quarter of 2017 compared to the same period last year. Therefore, emergency repairs are more frequent nowadays, and it is important to be prepared for these by using a contractor such as GRITIT who has the correct equipment available for immediate use.
