Salt stacks


Secure Covers® on salt stacks


The Environment Agency and SEPA "recommend that salt stores are roofed, but if this is not practicable, covered over with an impermeable membrane, situated on an impervious base and sited at least 10m from the nearest watercourse or soakaway."

  • Leaving road salt uncovered is a hazard to watercourses & wildlife.
  • Uncovered salt has a high moisture content which creates problems and breakdowns in gritting machinery.
  • Uncovered salt reduces spreading rate and efficiency.
  • Uncovered salt wastes money with 6 - 10% just being washed away by rain

Simple to use


Salt piles are heaped to a convenient profile then covered with a plastic sheet followed by Secure Covers weighted down with gravel bags.


Secure Covers are available in 16 different sizes off the shelf or can be custom made. The flexible sizes mean that you can choose a system to suit you. Covers can be clipped together to protect very large stock piles. The covers are easily rolled back to allow access to the pile.


Ideal for long term stockpiling or short term emergency storage.


No need for sewing or fitting by specialist teams. Secure Covers can easily be installed by 2 people with no special skills.


Secure Covers are completely reusable and due to their unique construction will not lift or tear in high winds. They are guaranteed for 10 years against UV degradation and fraying.


Whether stored in outdoor piles or ‘clamped’ in concrete pits, Secure Covers provide a cost effective way to protect road salt whilst allowing easy daily access.

David Hamilton of Wm. Hamilton & Sons Ltd, Stonehouse, South Lanarkshire explains the advantages of Secure Covers®


“We’ve had considerable success over the past two years in covering two heaps of road salt of 5000 and 17000 tonnes. Secure Covers® form a tough outer covering that is hard wearing, wind resistant and can be re-used.
The Secure Covers ®system is extremely cost effective in eliminating waste, preventing contamination from run-off and preserves quality. There is very little maintenance with the Secure Covers®system, rain runs off the heaps and the sheeting stays in place even in high winds.”
