Rock Salt vs. Ice Melt: Which is Best for Your Business?

By Andrew Stephens on Dec 1, 2020 7:15:00 AM

Snow may be beautiful, light and fluffy, but it can also pose a serious threat to your employees and customers and wreak havoc on your parking lots or driveways, especially  when combined with ice.

In the snowy winter months, it's absolutely crucial that you stock up on products to get rid of snow and ice. But, with so many de-icing products on the market, it's easy to feel overwhelmed by all the options.  

By far, the most popular de-icing products are rock salt and ice melt. Both are used to melt ice, but they're two very different products with distinct chemical compositions that work differently. 

Here at Egyptian Workspace Partners, our goal is to provide our clients with a safe and stress-free winter, which we can accomplish by helping you find the best de-icing solutions and winter safety supplies for your business.

In this article, we'll help you understand how rock salt and ice melt are different, as well as how they compare in certain categories, so you can stock up on the de-icing supplies you need before winter arrives.
