Sand Options for Your Construction Needs

J&J Franks offers a wide range of sand options to cater to various construction needs, each with its unique benefits:


Our building sand plays a pivotal role in mortar production, a versatile paste used to bind building blocks such as stones, bricks, and concrete masonry units together. It ensures the structural integrity of your construction projects, whether they are residential or commercial.

Bricks – Clay Based

Building sand possesses unique properties that make it an excellent choice for the production of clay-based bricks. When added to the brick-making process, it acts as a filler, preventing shrinkage and helping maintain the shape and dimension of bricks during kiln processing. It can also be used to create specific colours when coating brick moulds, allowing for customisation in your projects.


The sand quarried at Nutfield Quarry plays a pivotal role in building many of the roads in the South East and London. It is the primary ingredient in the production of asphalt, ensuring the durability and quality of the roads we use daily.

Leisure Industry

In the future, we aim to expand our offerings by introducing specialised sand for use in the leisure industry. By washing the Nutfield sand, we open up a world of possibilities, making it suitable for various applications such as golf course bunkers, equestrian centres for sand schools and gallops, and more.
