What can be used to prevent slipperiness and icing?

Snow and ice are removed mechanically, either with shovels, scrapers, brushes or centrifugal cleaners. Improper use of heavy machinery during maintenance can scratch the stone surface. To control slippage, it is advisable to use normal sand or granite chippings. Melting snow from paving stones with salt or ice melt is contrary to the manufacturer’s maintenance instructions and will have irreversible consequences for the paving stones.
