Snow Queen provides comprehensive ice management strategies to ensure zero operational interruptions, safe access and to make sure your property is not in liability. Depending on the property specifications, we apply either a brine solution or an organic grade de-icing compound. A proper ice management strategy is crucial to prevent slip & falls on your property in the winter season.
Many companies in the winter service industry prefer to use rock salt as their primary de-icing agent. However, there are many downsides for using this type of product. Our primary de-icing agent is formulated from beet extract. Our product is pet friendly and certifed safe for sensitive habitats. Our de-icing agent works up to -20° and is significantly less corrosive than standard rock salt.
Brine solution is a combination of salt and water that has a freezing point lower than water. Brine can be made with sodium chloride, calcium chloride or magnesium chloride. We prefer to utilize a calcium chloride solution as it is 90% less corrisive than the alternative mixtures.
