Safer roads. Happier residents. And easy on the budget.

Using Frost tools, municipalities are able to improve winter storm visibility and reduce auto accidents and injury.

How can Frost help my municipality?

Smart Snow Management

The Frost Solutions suite of snow and ice management tools is designed to give public works crews a leg up on winter. Our products all work independently or cohesively, depending on your municipality's needs.

Deploy your snow crew from the comfort of your bed, optimizing for road safety and saving taxpayer dollars on false deployments.

Reduce Salt Impact

Overuse of salt burns vegetation, contaminates water sources, and erodes infrastructure. By using the data provided by the Frost Mini-RWIS, you'll be able to more accurately apply salt and other chemicals, protecting your lakes, rivers, infrastructure, and land. Read more about why this matters.

How many units do I need?

While each municipality is different, and we can help plan the number of devices for your locale, we recommend taking one of these approaches to determine the right number of each type of unit. Depending on your city’s characteristics, you may need additional or fewer units to get a good read on conditions. Frost units can also easily be moved from one location to another.

Option 1: Split your Municipality into Sections

This can be the simplest and fastest way to get started, but may not result in the most useful data depending on your topography and road systems. Think about the different climates across your municipality and try to adequately represent each one. 

Option 2: Place RWIS units on varied Pavement Types

  • Asphalt
  • Concrete
  • Brick
  • Shady roads
  • Sunny roads
  • Bridges/Overpasses
  • Higher/lower elevation

Option 3: Focus on Known Problem Areas

  • Key intersections
  • Bridges
  • Inclines

Option 4: Major City Locations

  • City Hall
  • Town Square
  • Near Schools
  • School Parking Lots
  • Retail Centers

Is this expensive?

Not your average RWIS.

Historically, RWIS devices have been very expensive. Frost has created the first low-cost Road Weather Information System (RWIS) device that focuses on giving you more datapoints to better make snow and ice management decisions. Frost customers typically find the units pay for themselves after 2-3 winter weather events by better managing their resources, plows, and labor costs.

Wish you could have more datapoints?

Or more advanced notice on incoming weather?

We are happy to facilitate data sharing with neighboring cities with Frost units.
