Diverse Sand Options for Your Construction Needs

J&J Franks offers a versatile 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 bond building elements like stones, bricks, and concrete masonry units together. It guarantees 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 leisure industry, our high-quality building sand is used for various applications, including golf course bunkers, equestrian centres for sand schools and gallops, and more.
