Used in the construction of almost every building in the world, sand and stone are crucial materials in the architecture, engineering and masonry industries. As one of South Africa’s leading suppliers of clay and cement bricks as well as building materials, Steinworks stocks a wide range of sand and stone products, delivering to building sites in Gauteng & the Western Cape.
Building with sand
One of the key building materials employed by the construction industry, sand is available in a variety of different forms:
- Building sand
- Plaster sand
- Playpen sand
- Red sand
- Yellow sand
- Macassar sand
While one of the most common uses of sand in the building industry is as an ingredient, either for concrete or mortar, other applications for sand include:
- Plastering, building and screeding
- Construction infrastructure
- Filling under paving
When using sand as a building material, it is critical that it is ‘clean’ – free from water and any other impurities. As one of the country’s leading sand suppliers, Steinworks goes to great lengths to ensure that all sand bearing the Steinworks name is of the very highest quality.
The use of stone in construction
Like sand, stone is an integral building material in the construction process, used in applications such as:
- A base material under roads and buildings
- Driveway landscaping
- Drainage and cavity filling
- An aggregate in the mixture of concret
One of the longest-lasting materials available, building stone is prized for its strength and density, providing much-needed protection in the structures it is used to create. Steinworks stone undergoes strict quality procedures to ensure that it meets the high standards demanded by the building industry.
