How to Prevent and Manage Icy Sidewalks
How to Prevent and Manage Icy Sidewalks: Be prepared when winter weather hits with a de-icer you can trust.
Winter weather conditions are well known for creating icy sidewalks that can be a slipping hazard for many people. A common method for combatting icy sidewalks is usually rock salts. However, using rock salts and other chloride-based de-icers is a messy process that is corrosive to metal and concrete, unreliable at providing uniform coverage across walkways, and harmful to the environment. Thankfully, there is now SAFE PATH™ Liquid De-Icer and Pretreat, new from CAF. SAFE PATH is an easier and faster de-icing solution that can help prevent as well as remove ice after it has bonded to a surface.
For existing snow buildup, shovel or plow first.
Solution is ready to use. No mixing required. Pour solution directly into a clean 2-gallon sprayer.
1. Keep sprayer 18 in. from the surface as you apply SAFE PATH. As you walk, use a steady motion with sprayer wand across untreated area to ensure even coverage.
2. Reapply when new accumulation begins to bond to surface.
Apply directly to concrete cracks to prevent freeze / thaw damage.
Pretreat most effective on dry or frozen surfaces.
While SAFE PATH increases friction on ground surfaces, certain smooth iced surfaces can be slippery as SAFE PATH is actively melting.
Most effective below freezing temperatures.
The Advantages of SAFE PATH Liquid De-Icer and Pretreat:
Effective at temperatures down to -26° F and continues to melt ice as low as -72° F
Non-tracking solution: won’t track residue into your facility compared to rock salts
SAFE PATH can save you on costs and labor with its easy application using a 2-gallon sprayer
Environmentally friendly formula means safe to be around plant and animal life
SAFE PATH works fast so sidewalks and walkways are safer quicker
Stays on longer, requiring fewer applications, meaning less product is wasted
Easy to handle, stable in storage, and no agitation required
SAFE PATH is chloride free & non-corrosive
When winter comes, you can be prepared with a de-icer that works fast and is easy to use for icy sidewalks. By using SAFE PATH to prevent and remove ice from sidewalks, you will be providing customers with a positive and safe experience at your facility.
