Here at Grounds Care Group, we are proud to offer car park gritting, and help businesses fulfil their gritting duty of care every winter season.
Car parks are used throughout the winter period, and with car parks needing to be kept clear and safe for staff, visitors and guets, ensuring your car park is adequately gritted is key to maintaining good winter risk management.
No car park is the same size, and our gritting plans aren’t either. We pride ourselves on tailoring our service to suit your needs, while helping you to adhere to your winter risk management plan.
We don’t just cover businesses, we can grit school car parks, hospital and medical facility car parks, as well as covering local authorities and providing them with assistance during winter.
When the snow falls, it can be hard to navigate car parks safely, and the added risk of hidden ice is one that needs to be mitigated.
As well as providing gritting services, Grounds Care Group can also clear snow from your car parks, helping to keep staff, visitors and others safe.
For car parks in wintery areas, some car parks may need snow ploughing to make them safe again, rather than just snow clearing.
Once the snow has been cleared, we will grit to ensure that any further snowfall risk is mitigated. This not only helps to prevent ice from forming but ensures repeated snowfall melts away.
Multi-storey car parks, or raised car parks, don’t retain heat as they have no ground to hold any heat in. Therefore, during winter it’s key to grit car parks to ensure that any cold weather risks are mitigated early.
For hospitals and retail outlets, who often have multi-storey car parks, it’s imperative that the correct temperature monitoring systems are in place to allow for reactive gritting.
Hand gritting is often needed in these car parks, as the tight turns and steep inclines make it hard to manage with a gritting truck.
Grit bins can also be supplied to make gritting easier, and for car park maintenance teams to grit as and where needed.
