Batesford Quarry Fine Sand

FINE SAND

Our fine sand is used in civil works, concrete plants, horse arenas, building and domestic applications. We have a variety of sand available depending on the use. Our products include Unscreened Sand, Screened Sand, Washed Sand and Asphalt Sand

Please note, for safety and practical reasons, we are no longer able to load cars, utes or trailers.

Civil Works

The fine sand can be purchased screened to minus 4mm or unscreened. The sand is ideal as a bedding sand to level the bottom of your trench under pipes or services, or packing sand to cover the same and fill all voids. It is also well suited to bedding under concrete slabs to avoid damage to the barrier film.

Concrete and Asphalt Plants

A number of concrete and Asphalt batching plants add our washed fine sand to their main sand supply if they are lacking in fines. The use of our fine sand in concrete and asphalt is said to improve the workability and finishing quality of the concrete and asphalt.

Horse Arenas

More and more people in the equestrian field are using Batesford Quarry screened fine sand for their arenas and working areas. Whether it an indoors or an outdoor lunging circle or a training track, our sand provides good footing with no compaction over repeated use, while still offering the all-important cushioning effect.

Building & Domestic Applications

The whiteness of Batesford Quarry fine sand makes it very good for bricking sand when a white mortar is required. The resulting mortar is very “creamy” for ease of working. Our fine sand is excellent to provide a level base under paving and doubles to sweep over the finished paved area to grout all joins.
