Keeping the public safe

21 August 2012

Keeping the public safe during ice, snow and plunging temperatures is as simple as making sure the right products are used in the right situation, advises an importer of ice-busting products and spreaders which offers free advice and guides on its website.

DMMP Limited has a varied stable of products, which includes spreaders designed to handle potentially more difficult damp salt which may have been stored for some time.

The vehicle-mounted Magnum BLS240P is ideal for difficult-to-spread materials, as it can have a vibrator unit added to the hopper to assist the movement of salt to the specially-designed auger, which pulls the material down to the spinning disc. With a large amount of salt being stored since last year, DMMP anticipate some difficult spreading situations which means selecting the appropriate spreader will be more important than ever. Included in the range offered by DMMP are pedestrian spreaders, industrial spreaders for mounting on vehicles or to be towed behind them and sprayers operated by hand and carried on the body. Useful accessories are also available.

Snow shovels, scrapers and ploughs are available to make light work of the hard task of manually shifting heavy snow drifts whilst DMMP’s Liquid Ice Melt and Pedestrian Range keep roads, paths and all public areas under control.

“The key to successful public area management in snow and ice conditions,” concludes Marcus, “is making sure you have the right product, and the right method of application. We’re inviting organisations to speak with us for free advice without obligation. Our website www.goicemelt.co.uk has a guide to the application of salt and grit on it, which is free to browse.”

For free advice about effective ice and snow management, please contact Colin Hood at DMMP Limited on 0845 643 9776 or visit www.goicemelt.co.uk
