Sand Options for Your Construction Needs

At J&J Franks, we offer a variety of sand options to cater to diverse construction needs, each with its own set of benefits:


Our building sand is an essential ingredient in mortar production, a versatile paste used to bond building blocks like stones, bricks, and concrete masonry units. It guarantees the structural integrity of your construction projects, whether it’s a residential home or a commercial building.

Bricks – Clay Based

Building sand possesses unique properties that make it an excellent choice for producing clay-based bricks. When incorporated into the brick-making process, it acts as a filler, preventing shrinkage and preserving the shape and dimensions of bricks during kiln processing. Additionally, it can be used to create specific colours when coating brick moulds, allowing for customization in your projects.


The sand extracted from Nutfield Quarry plays a vital role in constructing roads across the South East and London. It serves as a primary ingredient in asphalt production, ensuring the durability and quality of the roads we rely on daily.

Leisure Industry

In our ongoing commitment to innovation, we are exploring the development of specialised sand for the leisure industry. By subjecting Nutfield sand to a washing process, we can unlock a wide range of possibilities. This treated sand can be used in various applications, including golf course bunkers, equestrian centres for sand schools and gallops, and more.
