What Are the Best Ice Melt Products Available?


The winter months have arrived, and the snow and ice aren’t far behind. Do you have the right products in place to ensure that the paved areas around your grounds stay safe for employees and customers? In the latest blog post from Kenney Machinery, we’ll discuss what ice melt products are, and provide you with some examples of the best ones on the market.

What Do Ice Melt Products Do?

Ice melt products, as the name suggests, are designed to melt snow and ice that could otherwise present hazardous scenarios. Any areas where snow and ice are present can quickly become serious, leading to a higher chance of slips, accidents, and even car crashes. 

Depending on the type of product that you’re using, how the product is used might differ. Salt, for example, should be used to melt snow and ice that are already present. Ice melter, on the other hand, works best when used ahead of snow and ice actually forming on the ground. 

Rock salt helps to melt existing snow and ice, while ice melt works to completely prevent them from sticking to the ground.
