How Salt Can Keep You Safe

Sodium Chloride (salt) is a major player in walkway safety. The Ice and snow build-up can cause dangerous safety conditions to your foot traffic area when it goes unchecked. Tens of thousands of Canadians slip on ice each year. Many of these slips are relatively inconsequential. However, slipping on ice can be more than an inconvenience. According to the Canadian Institute for Health Information; a study showed that over the past five years Canadians have been hospitalized between 5,312 and 9,121 times annually, due to slipping on ice.

Safety Starts with Salt

When uncomfortable cold winter weather conditions make for treacherous outside travel, salt can help. Using salt to maintain walkways and parking lots in response to winter snow and ice events will contribute to a dramatic reduction in slipping on ice.

How Does Salt Work?

Studies show that implementing winter maintenance programs that consist of salt usage can help clear the way for safer winter foot travel. Salting your walkways and parking lots before a storm forms a layer of brine on the pavement, greatly decreasing the formation of ice on the surface.
Pre-treating allows home and business owners to use less salt and it also makes it easier to shovel the snow off of the surfaces safely since the snow is not frozen to the pavement.Applying salt after a winter storm can be beneficial as well if all the slush is not cleared. If there is water on the walkways there could be a chance of that water re-freezing.

Winter is quickly approaching, are you ready for another round?

Be prepared this winter and save money and time with an effective ice melt! Keep your walkways safe this season with an ice melt that can’t be “BEET.” The Kissner Group has created a product that will outperform other leading brands by melting ice in even the extreme cold temperatures.

“We conducted a survey with a group of our customers to find out what they wanted in an ice melt and we received some interesting results,” said Tim Orleman, Executive VP of Kissner Group Inc.

Tim Orleman adds.

“We have already experienced a great deal of success with our customers by providing them with premium ice melt formulations. Our research is now revealing that our customers are interested in an ice melt that offer organic options and work in severe winter conditions and still preserve the surroundings.”

The Executive VP of Kissner Group explains.

“We realized we could serve a segment of the market that is requesting an organic and effective ice melter as well as provide them with an ice melter that will work in even the coldest conditions.”

It’s the best of both worlds, and a win, win situation for everyone.

The Kissner Group’s newest Ice Melter provides a blend of the latest ice melt innovations. Meet: The Ice Beeter™! This product is specially formulated with Beet Extract Solution. During extreme winters, salt alone just doesn’t cut it. Beet juice has become a very popular snow and ice-melting tool due to its sticky properties and organic goods.

How does Ice Beeter™ work? Tim Orleman explains the process of the Ice Beeter™.

“Our process begins with the extraction of the sugar particles from a sugar beet, leaving the molasses syrup. The organic solution is then infused with salt crystals, enabling the formulation to work at chilling temperatures.”

Tim Orleman further explains.

“Not only does Ice Beeter beat ice, it is less wasteful because it is made from a waste product that would normally be discarded into landfill. We listened when our customers requested a safer product, and by utilizing the beet vegetable it is as organic as it can get. “

Ice Beeter™ is triple-screened to provide uniform spreading with maximum results. It is color coated to ensure visible complete coverage. This helps reduce waste and prevents over-spreading, which can be harmful to vegetation and is also less binding to carpet fibers, resists tracking therefore reducing costly clean ups.

The Kissner Group takes pride in providing the highest-quality products and has further enhanced its ability to keep customers supplied at all times.” So this winter when nothing else works ask for Ice Beeter™.
