Sand Options for Your Construction Needs

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


Our building sand is a key ingredient in the production of mortar, a versatile paste used to bind building elements 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

Our building sand possesses unique properties that make it an excellent choice for the production of clay-based bricks. When incorporated into the brick-making process, it acts as a filler, preventing shrinkage and helping maintain the shape and dimensions of bricks during kiln processing. Additionally, it can 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 constructing many of the roads in the South East and London. It serves as the primary ingredient in the production of asphalt, ensuring the durability and quality of the roads we rely on daily.

Leisure Industry

In the near future, we plan to expand our offerings by introducing specialised sand for use in the leisure industry. By washing the sand from Nutfield Quarry, 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.
