Understanding the Armstrong Dune Family

The Armstrong Dune range is still the UK’s most popular and bestselling range of ceiling tiles. The Dune tiles offer a modern, sand-textured face, which provide a clean finish to ceilings whilst still maintaining a good balance between cost and performance.

The Armstrong Dune ceiling range also offers one of the largest combinations of size, edge, colour and performance upgrades of all suspended ceiling products. This page is designed to help you navigate through the many variations within the Armstrong Dune family to help you find the most suitable product for your requirements. Here you can also find a full list of manufacturer’s product codes with links to the products on our website where you can find technical performance data.

 

Armstrong Dune eVo

The Armstrong Dune eVo is the staple range within the Dune family, suitable for a wide range of applications and available in a number of size and edge combinations.

This range has replaced the old Armstrong Dune Supreme, offering enhanced performance and a fresh look. Ugrades include reinforced edges, increased light reflectance and better acoustic properties, now being a Class C sound absorber making it suitable for use in classrooms.

The eVo range is available in the 600 x 600mm (595 x 595 actual) and 1200 x 600mm (1195 x 595 actual) sizes, with Board/Square, Tegular (24mm grid) and Microlook Edge (15mm grid).

You can see the old product codes in the table below to find the new equivalent product and our guide on whether you need eVo or Supreme here.

 

Armstrong Dune Supreme

The Armstrong Dune Supreme range has been replaced by the Armstrong Dune eVo range above. This is a hugely popular tile found in many offices and outlets throughout the UK. We are one of the last remaining stockists, therefore if you have purchased Armstrong Dune Supreme tiles pre June 2017, then we highly recommend ordering spares whilst these tiles are still in stock.

The Supreme range is available in the 600 x 600mm (595 x 595 actual) and 1200 x 600mm (1195 x 595 actual) sizes, with Board/Square, Tegular (24mm grid) and Microlook Edge (15mm grid).

Armstrong Dune eVo dB– Sound Insulation/Attenuation

The Armstong Dune eVo dB offers increased Sound Insulation, sometimes referred to as Sound Attenuation. This is designed for areas where you require additional privacy, such as board rooms and meeting rooms.

Sound insulation is a measure of how much sound will be prevented from passing through a material and is therefore key if you need to prevent sound from travelling from room to room. This is measured in decibels (dB) and, as a general rule for a reasonable degree of privacy, the minimum sound insulation value between adjoining rooms should be 34dB. The Armstrong Dune eVo dB offers 39dB, making it a market-leader in enhanced sound insulation.

The dB range is available in the 600 x 600mm size (595 x 595 actual), with Board/Square, Tegular (24mm grid) and Microlook Edge (15mm grid).

This product has replaced the former Armstrong Dune dB, you can see the old product codes in the table below to find the new equivalent product.

 

Armstrong Dune eVo Max – Sound Absorption & Insulation/Attenuation

The Dune eVo Max range offers increased acoustic performance in terms of both Sound Insulation and Sound Absorption. Sound Insulation, as explained in more detail above, helps to prevent noise from travelling between rooms, while Sound Absorption will help to reduce the ‘echoey’ environment that can result from sound being reflected off surfaces back into the room. This tile is ideal in environments such as offices, retail units and schools where a balance of performance and cost need to be reached.

The Max range is available in the 600 x 600mm size (595 x 595 actual), with Board/Square, Tegular (24mm grid) and Microlook Edge (15mm grid), and 1200 x 600mm (1195 x 595 actual) Board/Square Edge.

The Colortone range is available in the 600 x 600mm size (595 x 595 actual), with Board/Square, Tegular (24mm grid) and Microlook Edge (15mm grid).

Armstrong Dune 500 x 500mm

Ceiling tiles in the 500 x 500mm size tend to be very specialist and not that popular in the UK market. The most common size for ceiling tiles is 600 x 600mm, however 500 x 500mm do appear from time to time, usually in high end offices.

The Armstrong Dune 500 x 500mm (495 x 495 actual) is available with Microlook Edge only for 15mm grid.
