Gritting & Salt
Whether you have a single site or hundreds of sites that span the UK, our national network of winter maintenance teams are on 24/7 standby and ensure safe access and egress to car parks and premises. Our clients include commercial businesses, retailers, property agents, blue light services, local authorities, social housing providers, schools and hospitals.
Ground Control owns an extensive range of specialist salt spreaders (lorry mounted, vehicle mounted, towed and pedestrian operated). Large salt carrying capacity gritting lorries increase our efficiency and mean fewer return trips to base in order to restock. This helps to decrease our carbon footprint.
Quality and Safety in Winter Maintenance
Ground Control prioritises detail oriented, quality performance and safe practice at all times. This is why we invest in top of the line equipment and training. We also take every measure to ensure that our winter maintenance teams engage in safe, consistently responsible gritting and salt placement.
Jobs are planned for several months in advance, at which point equipment is evaluated and repaired, and materials are replenished. Preparation is key, and our trained operatives evaluate forecasts and notify clients of sites that are to be attended in a timely, efficient manner.
Large car parks and approach roads require large carrying capacity machines. Small sites require smaller manoeuvrable units. Footpaths and those hard to access areas require pedestrian spreaders. So, we match our equipment to site size and accessibility. Each has a place in our professional service. After all, it’s the accuracy and evenness of spread that matters.
Our web-based portal provides our customers with real-time updates, so you know when your site has been gritted, from the before and after pictures. We feel that this is the best way to maintain a transparent gritting and salt service.
