Economy Silica Sand

 

Consists of: A fine grade Economy Silica Sand with a mix of rounded and sub-rounded grains. Our Economy Silica Sand can be used in equestrian applications where other additives such as fibre are used to eliminate deep riding caused by rounded grains. This product is particularly useful in areas with unlimited access to water as water will help to reduce deep riding in dry periods. This sand will perform better with moisture and will ride deep when dry unless used in combination with other products. Throughout prolonged dry spells it’s advised that you water the sand. This, with the addition of the rubber chip and/or fibre, will improve firmness, and the performance of the sand. All newly laid Silica Sand surfaces will require a period of settling before performing at their best although this process can be sped up by rolling and watering. It is recommended our Economy Silica Sand be used on free draining areas only as the rounded grains are more prone to hold onto water during the winter months.

Please Note: This sand is not recommended as a standalone surface and will require the addition of water and/or fibre to reduce deep riding. Silica Sand is not sold as any particular colour. Colour will vary according to delivery location.
