Explore Our Range of Building Sand Options

At J&J Franks, we offer a diverse selection of building sand options, each with unique benefits to cater to various construction projects:


Our building sand is an essential component in mortar production, serving as a versatile paste that bonds 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 qualities that make it an excellent choice for producing 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 extracted from Nutfield Quarry plays a vital role in constructing many roads in the South East and London. It serves as the primary material in the production of asphalt, ensuring the durability and quality of the roads we rely on daily.

Leisure Industry

Our high-quality building sand finds applications in the leisure industry, including golf course bunkers, equestrian centres for sand schools and gallops, and more.
