Diverse Sand Options for Your Construction Needs

At J&J Franks, we offer a versatile range of sand options, each with its unique benefits, to cater to various construction needs:


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

Bricks – Clay Based

Our building sand possesses unique properties, making it an excellent choice for the production of clay-based bricks. It acts as a filler, preventing shrinkage and maintaining the shape and dimensions of bricks during kiln processing. Additionally, it allows for customisation of specific colours when coating brick moulds, ensuring your projects stand out.


The sand quarried at Nutfield Quarry plays a vital 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 leisure industry, our high-quality building sand finds application in various projects, including golf course bunkers, equestrian centres for sand schools and gallops, and more.
