Along with the basic fissured tile, the sand texture or ‘Dune’ type ceiling tiles are the most popular style of tile produced for the UK market. This type of tile combines an excellent clean finish and good all round performance at a reasonable price.
The sand texture type of tile has historically been so popular due mainly to the combination of a plain finish and reasonablesound absorption. The ‘sandy’ type finish, often coupled with micro-perforations, allow the product to absorb sound by creating a larger surface area, without compromising the aesthetics. The low cost way to do this can be seen on the fissured type tile.
This style of tile was also very popular due to its flexibility, it is often available in a range of different size, edge and perforation details to cater for all styles and budgets.
Please note, many Sand texture ceilings tiles are often available in perforated and unperforated (or plain) versions. For more information on this, take a look at our article.
