Halite Rock Salt
Halite Rock Salt: Bulk Delivery & Pickup in NJ & NY
The combination of increased snowfall and freezing temperatures can easily create dangerous conditions for NJ and NY residents, as ice forms across paved surfaces.
In order to combat these issues, you’ll need to be prepared by stocking up on ice melting products before the first signs of inclement winter weather.
For many people, this means purchasing an ample supply of halite rock salt. Halite rock salt has become one of the most popular rock salts for those working on bulk jobs in NJ and NY such as housing developments, parking lots, road plows and other large areas.
Halite costs $7.39 per bag if you are purchasing less than a full pallet or $6.42 per bag if you’re buying a full pallet of Halite. Halite is sold with 49 bags per pallet and 18 pallets per truckload. Please note that all prices are subject to change without notice.
A Closer Look at Halite Rock Salt
At first glance, you may not recognize the name, but Halite is actually just your standard rock salt or sodium chloride. This particular product has become a staple across the country and throughout the world in areas that are prone to freezing temperatures.
Benefits of Halite Rock Salt
Despite the fact that there are a number of different rock salts available on the market, halite has managed to firmly hold its place as one of the most popular products.
The first reason for this is, of course, because nearly everyone is familiar with the effective melting power of sodium chloride. It works fast and efficiently so that roadways, parking lots, driveways and walkways can be safe for drivers and pedestrians.
The material is also extremely affordable. Halite is an abundant mineral, making it possible for suppliers to keep costs as low as possible. This is ideal for anyone who is watching their budget, or for those with large coverage areas that may require a bulk order. Finally, rock salt does not contain hazardous chemicals.
This makes it safe for handling, even without protective gear, and also makes it safer for vegetation that it may come into contact with.
Halite Rock Salt for Homes
Many homeowners choose to work with halite-based ice melt because it’s the product that they are the most familiar with. It’s easy to find and obtain, is highly affordable, simple to spread, and is extremely effective. Even so, you may have some concerns about the safety of using sodium chloride on your concrete surfaces.
If you’ve heard that rock salt can cause spalling, there are certain things that you can do to protect your concrete while still enjoying the benefits of the de-icer.
It may not look like it, but concrete is a porous material. When snow and ice form a brine with rock salt and melt, some of that brine can seep into your concrete driveway or sidewalk. At about 15 degrees Fahrenheit, the brine will begin to refreeze.
After numerous freeze and thaw cycles, spalling and damage could occur. To avoid this, be aware of projected temperatures for your area, avoid applying too much halite to your surfaces, and consider sealing your concrete.
Halite Rock Salt for Businesses
Business owners also enjoy taking advantage of the benefits that halite rock salt has to offer. Many retailers, schools, hospitals, churches, and other organizations tend to have larger properties featuring large spans of sidewalks, campus road systems and parking lots. Because other ice melting products can be costlier than sodium chloride, the use of rock salt is more economical for bulk ordering.
Since the material is so efficient and effective, ice can be melted quickly without too much rock salt being used. This helps to keep expenses minimal while allowing business to get back up and running quickly. Pallets are easy to store, bags are simple to manipulate, and salt can be applied with minimal effort.
Halite Rock Salt for Contractors
Snow and ice removal contractors end up using a great deal of halite rock salt throughout the winter months. Because rock salt is a material that most homeowners, business owners and cities trust, contractors can keep everyone safe. Cities and counties that hire third party snow removal services put a lot of faith in the melting power of rock salt as it is spread across the surface of plowed city streets, highways and interstate systems.
Home and business owners feel safe knowing that reliable halite rock salt has been introduced to snow and ice on their driveways and parking lots. As a result, countless tons of sodium chloride are introduced to paved surfaces during the harsh winter months.
Since contractors need to have so much of the material on hand in order to meet customer demands, it’s extremely important that the de-icer used is not only effective, but also affordable.
Purchasing & Storing Halite Rock Salt
It’s never too soon to start stocking up on rock salt. Too many home and business owners make the mistake of waiting until the last minute to hit the store. Once a storm is moving in, it may be too late.
Not only is it dangerous to be on the roads before snow and ice storms, but you’ll also find that suppliers may quickly run out of halite in your moment of need. It’s always smarter to make your purchases well in advance. In this way, you can enjoy the peace of mind that you’ll be covered when the weather turns ugly. You may also enjoy lower off-season pricing on your ice melt.
To avoid being required to repeatedly make return trips to your supplier, it’s in your best interest to anticipate your needs in advance. First, measure the coverage area of your property’s paved surfaces. Next, review the manufacturer’s specifications for the amount of halite that should be spread per square foot, yard or acre. This will let you know how many partial or whole bags of rock salt you’ll need per application.
Feel free to talk to an expert for more accurate calculations. If numerous bags will be needed per use, you should consider buying rock salt in bulk by the bag or the truckload. Your stockpile can then be stored in a facility that’s free of moisture and that is able to maintain a minimum temperature of 20 degrees Fahrenheit.
