Why Winter Calls for Hot Box Hire…

As the temperatures drop and we start to hear ever increasing reports that the coldest winter yet is on its way, it’s important to be aware of the negative effects the freezing temperatures can have on roads, and how this may call for hot box hire. The freeze/thaw process is responsible for creating and exasperating existing road defects. Once a crack is created if it’s subjected to further cold weather it can very quickly develop into a pot hole, producing an uneven and treacherous road surface that can be extremely dangerous for road users.  Driving conditions are also made worse by the regular hazards that are part and parcel of winter driving conditions. Therefore, at this time of year it’s incredibly important to remedy flaws in the road before this occurs. A hot box vehicle is specifically designed to carry and distribute hot asphalt to roads and areas such as this, and offers an easy way to repair broken areas of asphalt.
