Sand Options for Your Construction Needs

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


Our building sand plays a vital role in mortar production, a versatile paste used to bond building elements such as stones, bricks, and concrete masonry units together. It ensures the structural integrity of both residential and commercial construction projects.

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 maintaining 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 is a critical component 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.

Frequently Asked Questions

Today, under third-generation leadership, we have evolved into an integrated entity specialising in recycling, waste management, and aggregates, serving a diverse client base. Our unwavering commitment to quality and continual investment in the Betchworth and Nutfield sites have expanded our service range and enhanced our overall quality.
