Recommended Border Tile

Stratford Vinyl Ceiling Tile - Black (2x4)

We recommend using Stratford Vinyl Ceiling Tile - Black (2x4) as a border tile for Aristocrat Ceiling Tile - Black (2x4).

For tiles that either project down into the room or are coffered (recess up into the ceiling), the finished look is often better when using a border tile for partial tiles on the room's perimeter.

These thermoform tiles are made from UV Stabilized .013" thick vinyl plastic. They are designed to provide all the functionality of conventional drop ceiling tiles at a fraction of the weight. The feather-light construction makes them a breeze to install, easy to clean, stain resistant, water resistant, dust free, and eco friendly! Installation is fast and couldn't be any easier.

Designed to fit all standard 15/16" T-Bar Ceiling Systems. Will not fit in a 9/16" grid, please measure the visible width of your grid.

Not recommended for direct mount installation

Most of the thermoform ceiling tiles come in two sizes, 2'x2' and 2'x4', but if you have a 2x4 grid ceiling and would prefer the look of the 2x2 ceiling tiles, simply insert a 2' center T bar available online or at most local hardware's easy!

5 Year ProShield Warranty
The ceiling tile manufacturer guarantees that your ceiling tiles will be free from manufacturing defects for a period of five years from the date of purchase. Limitations apply. See full warranty information below.

UL Listing/Certification
ProLite ceiling tiles bearing this mark are UL tested and approved drop-out ceiling panels that can be installed beneath fire sprinklers. When exposed to heat from a developing fire, drop-out ceiling panels soften, distort, and fall from the ceiling grid. Heat from the growing fire activates the sprinkler which, unimpeded by the panels, controls or extinguishes the fire.

The Aristocrat 2x4 Grid Tile is an intriguing design that will become a hypnotizing focal point in your space. You will find that it is a great time saver since it will help you cover twice the space in half the time. Being that it is Class A Fire rated, it is an excellent choice for most businesses and homes. We are also proud to say that it is made in the USA.

Things to Consider:
The Aristocrat tile is not suitable for use as a direct mount tile, since it is not flat on the back.

While it is only .013"; thick, the embossed design gives it the rigidity and structure needed to support itself in the grid with no sagging. To avoid the risk of sagging, you will want to avoid putting any weight on top of it. If you would like to keep your existing acoustical tile in the grid for insulation or sound barrier purposes, we recommend that you place it above the frame work so that it is not in direct contact with the tile.

Since your ceiling will more than likely have partial tiles at the perimeter, you will have to cut the tiles to size for those areas. Since the Aristocrat tile projects .50" below the grid, you might encounter a gap running into the wall when it is cut. Not to worry, since we have many great border tile options. You will notice that we have them conveniently linked for your selection on the product details page.

If your grid is already white and in good condition, it should match the white Aristocrat tile very well. If you are going with a colored option, we highly recommend that you consider the Grid Tape or Grid Strips since they are color coordinated with the ProLite collection. If you would prefer to avoid the extra expense, you can of course paint your grid as well.

Greenguard Gold Certification offers strict certification criteria that considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly), and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System. Click here for more information.

UL Listing/Certification
Certain ProLite ceiling tiles are approved drop-out ceiling panels that can be installed beneath fire sprinklers.

Materials used in the construction of the tile(s) are 100% waterproof.

Class A Fire Rated
Tiles have been tested in accordance with ASTM 84e and scored a Class A rating for flame spread and smoke generation.

Basement Reno

These tiles transformed my basement project so beautifully! I didn't want the traditional tile dating my once opened no walled basement! I was doing research and found proceilingtiles and decide to order two recommended samples which were Aristocat and Stratford tiles. They didn't disappoint. My contractor was even impressed with the file look and so was I. The low bearing ceilings were transformed to a lovely looking space for guest to feel very comfortable. I had to make about 4 orders to get the exact needed amount of tile to cover approximately 1000 sq ft of my basement.

Outstanding Service

This was my 1st time ordering sight unseen and when I tell you I am amazed. Great quality items and cheaper than other stores. The service was top notch thanks to Jason. He was quick and very responsive. You would think we knew each other forever the way he treated me. I am still waiting to install everything but we put one tile in and they are beautiful. Can't wait for my next order.

A Whole New Room

I was scared to death to order these tiles, but even more scared to leave the horrible drop ceilings. Turns out, I was worried for nothing! The tiles arrived quickly and in perfect condition. The install was easy enough and I couldn't be more thrilled with how they all turned out. I will definitely use proceiling tiles again.

I love the look and feel

I used the ceiling tiles in my breezeway which used to just be a room that I walked through to get from my garage into my living room. It had no character. It had no purpose in my house. The ceiling tiles changed the entire feel of the room and it is now elegant and dramatic. I love them.

I was just buying a sample

This is not the tile I chose. It looks good and was what it was represented to be - I just liked a different one better

Lots of compliments

We bought a few different styles of tiles and created a patchwork ceiling for our space. It was an astounding improvement over the standard drop ceiling tiles that were there previously. Plus our team was able to do all the installation ourselves, which was a bonus.

Love this look

I was able to make a statement with my kitchen ceiling using this pattern. Impactful and economical- perfect

Wonderful and unique

It's very hard on a limited budget to update and make a very dated room look fresh and nice.. rather than spend your money at the home improvement store for institutional tiles. Try these. They have brought a wonderful texture to the room and makes even the dated paneling work. They send you full tile samples so you can fit them in the ceiling before you buy. You won't be sorry

Worked and looks good .

This product was used to create rotating panels for the set of a play. The panels were painted to mimic wood panels in a British manor house. They were lightweight which allowed us to mount them on the surface of the rotating panels.

Beautiful and Affordable

I was warned that plastic mold tiles would not self support, but this absolutely not the case.
