The Importance of Parking Lot Ice Removal: Ensuring Safe Conditions

Parking lots become hazardous during winter due to icy and slippery conditions. Effective sand and salt spreading play a crucial role in ensuring the safety of drivers and pedestrians. This article will explore the significance of proper spreading techniques and highlight the advantages of using our sand and salt spreaders for winter control.

Benefits of Hilltip Spreaders for Icy Parking Lot Safety

Our spreaders provide optimal performance for the contractor, ensuring safe and accessible parking lots throughout the winter season in the most efficient way.

Achieving Optimal Results for Ice-Free Parking Lots

Proper sand and salt spreading techniques are crucial in maintaining ideal conditions in parking lots. Optimizing spreading rates and coverage is essential to combat ice buildup efficiently. Implementing pre-treatment and post-treatment measures prevents ice formation and ensures long-lasting results. These techniques create a safe environment for vehicles and pedestrians.

The recommended application rate varies depending on, for example, the de-icing method, pavement temperature, snow, or freezing rain conditions

With weather conditions like 25-30°F and snow or freezing rain, the site is usually pre-treated with salt brine. This step might be preceded by snowplowing, if necessary. The site is then treated with pre-wetted salt with an application rate of  5.75 lbs/1000 sq. ft. Make sure to use GPS ground speed mode. That way, you’ll always get an even spread rate, no matter how fast you drive your truck. The application rate can also be pre-set remotely in the Hilltip HTrack™ portal for the specific work site.

Prioritizing Safety in Parking Lot Sanding and Salting

Safety should always be a top priority in parking lot sanding and salting. Our spreaders have automatic safety features such as an anti-clogging vibrator, a beacon, and a work light, ensuring the operator’s well-being and visibility in harsh and dark winter conditions. Following safety guidelines and wearing appropriate personal protective equipment prevent accidents, creating a secure environment for all.
