ALCON driving during Winter and salt

Hello, i am installing right now the ALCON 4 pot 365 BBK for the 335i and my shop noted that they dont have any dust protection for the calipers as other brands like Stoptech have.
they told me that i should not use them during the winter since salt can go into the caliper and blocked them.
Is this true?
Thanks

to a degree, that is true, as a lot of race parts tend to be like that. Usually, you can get away with using them on the street if you keep them up with frequent maintenance and cleaning though.
