Rock Salt is very important, especially in winter time

What exactly is rock salt?

Rock salt is also known as halite and is also known as the mineral form of sodium chloride. Unlike regular salt that you would see in granules, it comes in rock formations, therefore it is much chunkier. It is mined from the sea and from underground. In the UK it is mainly found in the North West of England with the largest mine being in Winsford Cheshire. In its larger rock form it is commonly used for de-icing and keeping roads safe in wintery conditions. Obviously in the last few years there have been some quite harsh winter conditions and the country has been under prepared as a whole. For this reason the importance of rock salt has grown as lots of people are realising how much they need it to function properly in the winter time.

How is rock salt stored?

Rock salt is generally stored in 25 kg sealed bags. This means that it can be carried by individuals and it will not stick together as long as it is kept dry. Obviously large organisations will have large mountains of rock salt as it will be loaded onto spreaders etc. If individuals are handling rock salt, the best way to spread it is simply with a shovel. It is hard to say exactly how much you will need as this depends on how much ice there is. Rock salt actually melts the ice as well as giving you better tread.

Where is a good place to buy rock salt?

Probably the most obvious place to buy rock salt is from a builder’s yard. Obviously prices can vary greatly so it is a good idea to shop around. One place that is worth a special mention is a website called www.bdl-cs.co.uk. They have fantastic prices and their customer service is second to none. If you do find yourself in need of rock salt then you really should consider this great supplier as they are leaders in the field of rock salt.
