Here we are at the beginning of another winter season! It is hard to believe after all the beautiful, warm fall weather we have had, more snow and ice are on the way. When it comes to winter, there is often an increase in slip and fall related hazards and incidents. Protect yourself and your family this year by stocking up on salt and other de-icing products for your property!

Greely Sand & Gravel offers de-icing products that are effective and easy to use whether you are a homeowner, contractor, or business operator.

Rock Salt is the most commonly used option in the Ottawa area for deicing roads, sidewalks, and driveways. Greely Sand & Gravel sources premium, pure Rock Salt which lowers the freezing temperature of water and melts ice, preventing dangerous ice buildup. Rock salt is effective to -9℃ and it covers most winter conditions with ease.

Thawrox Salt is a mix of rock salt, magnesium chloride, and a viscosity modifier that makes the mixture more effective in lower temperatures and icy conditions. In addition to its enhanced low-temperature performance, Thawrox Salt has an expanded melting capacity because it has minimized bounce, meaning that when spread on a driveway, sidewalk, or path, it sticks to the surface and immediately starts melting the ice. Thawrox Salt also emits less total chloride into the environment and reduces levels of corrosion on vehicles and equipment as opposed to other de-icing options. With Thawrox Salt, you can have peace of mind knowing that you have a pre-mixed, effective de-icing compound at the ready to make your property safe, while minimizing impact to your vehicles and the environment.

Salt/Sand Mix and Salt/Chip Mix are also available for ice control by offering traction control for slippery surfaces, along with higher visibility of product use.
