Paving Sand

Paving Sand Supplier

Paving Sand is very dry fine sand that contains no moisture. The sand is used to fill the joints of block paving and paving slabs. By filling the joints with paving sand you keep the structure of the paving rigid and strong. It also stops the ingress of water & stops the paving from moving and becoming loose.

The sand is dried to remove all the water before it is ready to use. The sand is supplied bagged and dry. It is an extremely fine sand that will flow easily into the joints and gaps in block paving and paving slabs.

 

Paving Sand Use

Paving Sand is used to lock individual paving blocks together. By doing this you stabilize and strengthen the paving block structure.

The sand in between the joints of block paving prevents water from penetrating the paved area and locks the individual pavers together stopping them from moving. If the joints of block paving are left without paving sand, they may sink due to water penetration and the blocks will become loose over time.
It’s crucial after washing block paving that you replace any lost sand once the paving has dried. This is to prevent water ingress into the paving joints. Unless your paving is designed to be permeable. In which case you should not use kiln dried sand but use clean graded stone chippings.
