We offer a number of high grade sands, gravels and support media for water filtration:

Water treatment works sand

Our sub-angular to rounded grain shape, petrological composition and high silica content make it ideal media for water filtration – both potable and effluent water treatment. We work closely with all levels of the supply chain, from small independents to specialist contractors and utility companies across the UK, to provide a range of quality filtration media. Our products are supported by a knowledgeable dedicated team and a timely, UK-wide delivery service.

We are prequalified through the Achilles UVDB (Utilities Vendor Database) scheme.

Filter bed sand

Filter bed walls and tiles are available through our precast concrete division.

Swimming pool filtration sands

Available in 25kg bags for ease of distribution, storage and placement, our graded sands are used extensively for both commercial and domestic swimming pool filtration. We also supply filtration media for natural swimming pools.

Reed bed sand

We can supply both silica sand and gravel for reed beds.

Industrial water filtration sand

We are used across a wide range of water filtration applications in many industries and manufacturing processes.

Glass Sand

Glass Sand is a sustainable alternative to primary aggregate sand, produced from either screening or crushing waste glass.

Glass Sand is made from post-consumer bottle waste of all colours that is processed by either implosion or crushing.

A number of grades can be produced, from ultra-fine to coarse, lending itself to a number of applications within other construction materials such as asphalt and is ideal for water filtration.

Depending on performance or aesthetic requirements, the proportion of sand and glass in blended products can be varied.

Waste and Resources Action Programme (WRAP) has undertaken a number of studies, with encouraging results into various applications of Glass Sand as an alternative to a primary material.
