Silver Play Sand
The beige-coloured Silver Play Sand is extremely soft and pliable sand, perfect for children's play areas and golf courses. Due to the soft texture, the Play Sand, as the name suggests, is the best one to use in environments frequented by children since it will not be harsh on the skin and comfortable to play on.
Silver Play Sand, also known as Leisure Sand, is finely-graded sand that is non-toxic and non-staining therefore making it appropriate for play areas and sports fields. This particular type of sand is what is used by schools the most for their sports areas and sandpits. it is also used in artificial beaches by the council due to its low number of toxins, making it an overall great choice for public areas.
Silver Play Sand for Sand Pits and Play Areas
As we have mentioned before, the Silver Play Sand is perfect for children's play areas and sandpits. This is due to the fact that they are very soft to the touch and therefore will not irritate their skin. Moreover, they are some of our most affordable and best value products and are therefore great should you need to topup your play areas without it costing too much.
A common place where you will find the Silver Play Sand is on artificial beaches. Councils prefer Silver Play Sand due to the fact that they are very non-toxic and don't run the risk of staining your clothes. This in turn makes them family-friendly and safe to have around young children.
Soft Play Sand for Golf Bunkers
If you have ever visited a golf course, you will have noticed a large expanse of areas filled with sand. More often than not, those areas are filled with Soft Play Sand. The reason landscapers use Soft Play Sand for Golf Bunkers is that you can buy them in large quantities for a fraction of the price and also because they will not irritate the players' eyes or skin.
Furthermore, due to the fineness of the sand, they are a great landing pad for golf balls. That's not all, because the sand is so much softer, the golf club will move more sand, more smoothly and therefore divot that is created will be naturally deeper and longer, especially when compared to more harder sand.
As stated above, the Soft Play Sand is a very fine type of sand, meaning they are easy to rake through and maintain and adaptable to various environments.
Our Soft Play Sand is available to purchase as small 20kh bags that are perfect for smaller projects. We also stock them in bulk bags that can take, approximately, around 850kg of sand.
What are the different Sand options?
You may or may not be aware, there is a wide variety of sand that we supply and that is widely available in Landscaping and Building supplies centres. It is important to be aware of which type of is required for your project as different landscapes require different types of sand because as we have already established, they come in widely different textures.
As you are aware, sand is a naturally occurring material that is created over years and years from eroded and broken down rocks. To be able to call the eroded substance 'sand' the grains must be between 0.6m and 2mm in size.
As a result of the factors stated above, and is a popular and in-demand substance because while it seems like we have an infinite amount of sand available to us, especially when you see such large quantities of them at the beach, they will eventually start to dwindle. The eventual decrease in quantity will lead us to look for more sustainable methods and materials to get by.
The sand that we receive, and most suppliers receive are particularly developed for commercial uses and therefore has to go through multiple tests and strict screenings to be able to label as such. The screening is essential as it will make sure that there are no sharp objects and unwanted debris in the sand.
You will also notice that the Soft Building Sand looks the most like the sand that we have in playgrounds. It is a very light beige that reflects the sun in a complementary way. There are varieties of sad that are a little darker and some that look almost orange - namely the 'Orange Building Sand'. The colours are dependent on the iron levels within the sand so the more iron, the more orange it will be.
There are sands that are labelled 'Builders Sands' that are often used for bricklaying and to line ponds with. There is also plastering sand, which when mixed with water and cement creates a substance that has many uses within landscaping projects.
