Gritting & Snow Clearance

For full details of our gritting and snow clearance service visit

During the months of November through to March, FGS provide a cost effective winter gritting service for commercial, industrial and private premises across the South East, tailored to meet the individual requirements of each site. As the adverse weather and hazardous conditions approach, our team is on standby 24 hours a day, 7 days a week with a range of bespoke vehicles in order to keep our clients’ sites safe. We offer more than just a gritting service. We monitor national weather conditions, notifying clients of potential risks in their area so that we can grit their site before their staff or customers arrive. We are able to apply grit to parking areas, access roads, footpaths and smoking areas. In addition to grit salt we can supply and apply “safe grip” Glycol de-icer product if required.  We provide a unique gritting service especially for:

  • Office car parks and communal areas
  • Industrial, retail and trading parks
  • Public areas including schools
  • Lorry and car parks
  • Private property, driveways and roads

When it snows we also have a fleet of snow ploughs available day and night to maintain safe access and egress, should they be required.

The HSE advises that “Gritting should be carried out when frost, ice or snow is forecast or when walkways are likely to be damp or wet and the floor temperatures are at, or below, freezing. The best times are early in evening before the frost settles and/or early in the morning before employees arrive. Salt doesn’t work instantly; it needs sufficient time to dissolve into the moisture on the floor”. Salt gritting and snow clearing can assist you in meeting your legal requirements.
