Sands

Sands are a particularly vital quarry material. Sand can be natural or manufactured to a desired size. When used in concrete production, the sand properties also contribute to how the concrete performs, so regular testing is crucial.

Sands are typically used as drainage and filter materials, in road construction and under concrete slabs and pavers.

Below are some of the sand products we produce at Metromix.
