Calculate your Cost Savings

Save Money on your Ice Control Plan

 

Over time, LavaGrip saves you money because LavaGrip requires fewer applications and helps reduce the number of salt applications needed to keep you safe on icy surfaces.

 

Select your city to see how much you might save! All calculations are based on the average temperature at set geographic locations, often using an international airport. Please be aware that each surface area might require slightly different application amounts due to different weather conditions, elevation, and shade. We encourage users to use enough LavaGrip so that they are safe on icy surfaces.
