Snow and ice aren’t the everyday hazards businesses have to cope with, but when it happens you need a company that you can rely on and take the stress away. This is where Ambius can help.

Ambius have been gritting and clearing snow for over 15 years, so we know what our customers’ expectations are and how to meet them, efficiently. We are able to supply all of our clients with grit bins, bags of salt and snow shovels if required.

Why does Salt Spreading melt ice?

You might be wondering, 'but how does gritting actually work?' 'How can salt de-ice a surface?'. Well don't worry, we will explain it. The reason salt is used to keep walkways, roads and steps safe is the fact that it lowers the freezing point of the ice and moisture on the grounds surface. Therefore prevents any ice from forming in the future and of course melts any existing ice on the ground. We choose our equipment and gritting tools with the environment in mind, so we can ensure walkways paths and roads are safe without damaging grassed areas, flowers or foliage. 

With Ambius' commercial salt spreading service, you don't need to monitor your local weather forecast 24/7 in order to know what to prepare for. With English weather being known for it's continuous changes, it can sometimes be hard to manage the risk of future weather conditions. Depending on where you are based, we can send our team of gritters in the AM to help protect your business for the day.
