Builder Sand Suppliers In Manchester and Lancashire

This fine grained aggregate can be used for many construction purposes. Builder Sand is frequently called orange sand or soft sand by people in the industry, but people outside the industry tend to confuse it with sharp sand and so it is generally designated as Builder Sand to avoid confusion. (Sharp sand is composed of quartz and is also used in concrete.)

Builder Sand is a true, naturally formed sand usually taken from the sea. It is finer than sharp sand which is also frequently used in construction work. This fine grained sand provides the smooth consistency needed for many building projects. It resists clumping because the sand grains are different sizes. Since it is frequently taken from the ocean, builder sand can contain a high level of salt and so should not be used for planting. This high salt content is an advantage when builder’s sand is used to help prevent sliding on icy roads.

Builder Sand is just one of numerous aggregates used in construction. The term aggregates refers to any grainy material used in construction as a sub-base or as part of concrete or mortar. Aggregates include crushed stone, gravel, sand, and grit as well as recycled, crushed concrete, bricks and other items.

Aggregates have been used since ancient times to improve the strength of concrete and other construction mixtures. The ancient architectural author Vitruvious writes of the need to find suitable aggregates near the construction area so that concrete can be made. Today, quality suppliers such as Greenvale take the worry and aggravation out of finding quality aggregates; Greenvale sells a variety of other aggregates, such as recycled sand and decorative gravel, in addition to Builder Sand.
