When winter weather strikes, traction sand can be used on icy surfaces to help provide grip. Since sand is an abrasive material, it helps provide traction on slippery surfaces. Additionally, traction sand is an environmentally friendly method for enhanced grip on frozen roadways, sidewalks, parking lots and other walking or driving surfaces. 

Traction sand reduces salinization which is a growing threat to our aquatic habitat and drinking water.  With Maryland and Virginia becoming one of the most rapidly developing areas in the northeast, drainage into the Chesapeake Bay is of great concern. Help us protect our watershed by choosing Chaney Enterprises’ Traction Sand for the roadways.
