A Brief Overview of Grit Bins

When choosing a salt bin the main thing you need to think about is what size you want and the area you are trying to cover. This could depend on a number of different things:

  • How big an area is the grit bin serving?
  • What type of area is it and how often does grit need to be applied?
  • Who is doing the gritting?

We offer a range of different sizes of grit boxes from 90L to 800L. Our larger grit bins are perfect for those large surface areas that need constant attention such as: Schools, Retail Parks and Local Authorities. Examples of these are the Nestor™ 400 grit bin which has a 400ltr capacity and the Orbistor™ grit bin which has a 800ltr capacity.

Our smaller Grit Bins are perfect for harder to reach areas but need an equal amount of attention such as: Footpaths/Walkways, Car Parks and Driveways Examples of these are the Rollastor™ Portable Grit Bin which has a 110ltr capacity and the Nestor™ 90 Grit Bin which has a 90ltr capacity.

The Perfect Solution for You

At Glasdon we understand that gritting can be hard work, which is why our range is so extensive. Our products help to ensure that the rock salt is stored away from the elements and can be accessed & scattered easily. Our smaller capacity products can be manoeuvred manually even when full, with drainage mechanisms to keep the rock salt free of water.

Our larger capacity grit bins are also specially designed to keep the water out of its contents, and wind resistant to keep the weather from damaging the product itself.


We also offer different Options with different Grit Bins:

  • Colour
  • Fixing
  • Lid
  • Lock
  • Name Personalisation

Coordinating Products

  • Glasdon Snospade™ Snow Shovel
  • Glasdon Ice Grips™
  • Icemelt™ - 25kg bag
