We look at 3 of our most popular grit bins and what they can be used for

Nestable Grit Bin

Nestable grit bins are best suited to busy environments and great when you need to dispatch grit bins quickly and efficiently.

The stackable design means they are super easy to transport and take up less space than a normal smaller grit bin.

These are ideal if you have large premises and need to dispense salt/grit throughout making sure that your company is running smoothly through the winter months.

The standard grit bin, it is a common sight in the depths of winter. Did you know these are also stackable, and they feature deep channels at the bottom in case you need to move them with a forklift, adding to their versatility.

The grit bin can also be used during the warmer months for other storage if you do not keep the grit stocked up all year round.

We found a great use for it in our handy infographic below.
