Commercial Ice Melt Spreaders are Built Tougher than Any Winter
Let’s face it - Salt spreading is likely not the most exciting task a snow and ice professional will take on this season. But it’s incredibly necessary! Snow and ice can make otherwise safe walkways, parking lots, and other public areas potential hazards. The newly slick grounds are accidents waiting to happen and commercial properties, municipal buildings, schools, and even residential areas need to be properly prepared to take on the dangers to keep everyone as safe as possible. And with the right tools, getting these applications done can be a cost effective and efficient process.
Have faith in your investment as the construction of these salt spreaders are top of the line. These commercial grade salt spreaders are built to last and withstand the harsh elements of the winter.

Keep Commercial Properties Safer, Quicker with Proper Ice Melt Application
Granular ice melt products, and calcium chloride products in particular, have long been the go-to favorite for many ice and snow contractors. With some blends able to work down to even -25°F, it’s no wonder professionals trust these products to make sure properties are kept safe even in the worst of the winter months. While it may be a little slower than a liquid ice melt because it needs to become a brine in order to get in and do its job, the staying power and strength of the products keeps the pros coming back for more. Since it has further to go before its diluted by the snow, it means it will be working harder longer than a liquid product. It also means it won’t easily get washed away from any high traffic areas! Combine that with the right spreader and you’ll be easily spreading ice melt with little wasted product in no time.
