Concreting Aggregates & Screeding Aggregates

Concreting Sand

There are two main types, both of which can be used in concrete production and floor screeding.

Sharp Washed Sand

Sourced from sand & gravel pits and wharves and generally varying in colour from yellow to brown dependent on the source of supply.

Nominally 0-4mm in size.

Sharp Washed Sand

Limestone Washed Sand

A quarry product commonly used for concrete products, floor screeds and bedding in brick paviors and slabs.

Normally 0-4mm in size - can vary in colour.

Limestone Sand

10mm Gravel (Shingle)

A mixture of rounded and angular gravel, varying in colour and shape dependent on source. Used in construction and domestic applications such as footpaths, pipe bedding, drainage, planting borders and hard landscaping.

10mm Gravel

10mm Pea Shingle

A decorative variation of the above containing less angular material due to not having been processed through crushing.

10mm Pea Shingle

20mm Gravel (Shingle)

An effective driveway gravel also used for footpaths, pipe bedding, drainage, planting borders, hard landscaping and as a low maintenance alternative to grass. It can also vary in colour and shape dependent on source.

20mm Gravel

0/20mm All in Ballast

A mixture of Sharp Sand and 20mm gravel for use in standard concrete mixes. Widely used in construction and domestic applications. 20mm Ballast is not suitable for drainage due to its high fines content.

Limestone ballast

20mm All in Ballast (Limestone)

A mixture of 20mm limestone and limestone sand.

20mm-Ballast

10mm All in Ballast

A variation of the above using 10mm instead of 20mm stone, producing a concrete mix that can be laid in thinner layers.

10mm Ballast

Mortar Sands

Dry Screened Building Sand

BS EN 13139, also known as soft sand due to its fine rounded particles and clay content of 10% or higher. Typical use is for the production of mortar for bricklaying and block work. These sands are supplied from various sources and care should be taken in matching existing colours

Building Sand

Washed Building Sand

Washed and usually subject to the bricklayer's preference for colour and workability. These sands vary in colour, dependent on source and the natural variations inherent in the raw material.

Please note – If possible, due to possible variation, it is advisable to order all sand volumes required to complete brickwork projects at the start of the project.

Sharp Washed Sand

Plastering Sand

Finer grade than sharp sand and washed to remove stones, allowing a smooth finish to walls. Like Washed Building Sand, Plastering Sand comes from various sources.
