Sand & Gravel
There is an abundance of uses for Dolese’s sand and gravel, and it all comes with Dolese’s unparalleled quality control and unrivaled service. Our ranking as one of the top sand and gravel producers in the country comes from our ability to offer quality products that meet our customers’ needs at a competitive price. From our eight production or distribution facilities that cover the Oklahoma City, Enid, and Baton Rouge areas, we provide a variety of materials.
Dolese's concrete sand, made to meet ASTM C33 standards, is a washed high quality specification product that is thoroughly tested at each production facility and in our quality control lab in Oklahoma City to ensure it meets applicable gradation requirements. Concrete sand is primarily used as the fine aggregate component in the production of concrete, but also meets specifications as granular backfill and some filter applications.
DSS is a high quality washed product made to our own specification and is a slightly finer gradation than ASTM C33 concrete sand. This finer gradation improves the finishing qualities of concrete, particularly in residential flatwork applications.
Dolese's masonry sand is washed and screened to remove imperfections. This product is very fine, which makes it ideal for grout, mortar, and other masonry applications including use as a "joint sand" to fill the joints between pavers and patio blocks. Masonry sand is very clean, but it is normally a non-specification product.
Dolese's screened fill sand is a clean non-spec washed product. Because it is clean it is a great material to use in the production of asphalt. Our screened fill sand meets ODOT specs for standard bedding material. It can also be used as a leveling course in many outdoor masonry applications, as a bed for an above ground pool, or to construct a sand volleyball court.
Unscreened fill sand is an unprocessed non-specification material generally loaded right out of the river or lake bank. Although it is a non-spec material, unscreened fill sand can be a good value for general fill applications.
Gravel is smooth rounded river rock. When used in the proper concrete mix and finished properly it produces a very appealing exposed aggregate appearance. It also has a wide variety of decorative, landscaping, and natural filtration applications. River gravel is produced only at our Sand and Gravel plant in Mustang, Oklahoma, and our St. Helena Sand and Gravel plant in Pine Grove, Louisiana.

To guarantee that our aggregate products meet specifications and customer expectations, we constructed across-the-board Quality Control Lab upgrades at each of our quarries. These labs are staffed by numerous trained technicians who perform constant tests on our sand and gravel, ensuring we produce a consistent product.
Our aggregates are further tested at Dolese's Central Lab in Oklahoma City - in both raw form and as a component of ready-mixed concrete. At the central lab, aggregates undergo annual testing for alkali-silica reaction (ASR) in concrete, as well as the determination of physical properties such as abrasion resistance, soundness, specific gravity and absorption. In the form of ready-mixed concrete, they also undergo freeze/thaw testing according to ASTM and Oklahoma Department of Transportation specifications.
