Gritting

Ensuring business as usual no matter what the weather! Winter threats can be controlled by planning your winter maintenance solutions today.

Always prepared

Our Helpdesk is supported at all times by our 24/7/365 Duty Managers with a dedicated contact number for each client.

Tailored for you

We understand that every client’s requirements are different so our packages are exclusively tailored for you.

All client site locations, whether single or multi-site will be added to our advanced alert forecasting system. We will set a trigger temperature with our client (we recommend 1°C) and at this temperature Hortech will deploy gritting teams. We also have the ability to monitor and report the likelihood of snowfall and give up to date information on road conditions.

Above and beyond

Always looking to go that extra mile for our clients . . . we will even calculate whether the top storey of a car park will hit the trigger temperature even when at ground level it doesn’t!
