A Grit Bin (also known as a salt bin) is an item of street furniture which stores de-icing salt or grit which is used to spread over roads that are covered with snow or ice.
Anyone may use a grit bin to clear a public path or road, though they are generally not intended for personal use. Typically, a salt distributing scoop or snow clearing spade or shovel is used to spread a thin layer of grit onto the road surface, covering any snow or ice. PARRS offer a range of salt distributing scoops and snow clearing shovels here: Shovels, Scoops & Pushers
We offer a wide range of Salt and Grit Bins from a small 30lt bin to a large 400lt bin. We also sell a mobile grit bin which is a fast and efficient way of maintaining good working conditions through adverse weather.
