Glasdon guide to grit bins bannerYour choice of grit bin will depend on the capacity you need in relation to the area you are trying to cover. Questions to ask include:
  • How big an area is the grit bin serving?
  • What type of area is it and how often does grit salt need to be applied?
  • Who is doing the gritting?
