Available in the same variety of colors as our ProLite Tiles, the Decorative Grid Tape is designed to cover the drop-ceiling suspended grid system installations.
Easy to trim to size with household scissors, this tape makes the T-bar disappear, leaving nothing to detract from your new beautifully crafted, custom ceiling.
Small dabs of tile adhesive should be applied to the back of the tape every 6 inches. The adhesive backing on the tape IS NOT a permanent adhesive but allows for it to stick to the ceiling long enough for the glue to cure. Failure to use glue may result in the failure of the tape to adhere to the ceiling.
One tube of our Direct Mount Adhesive is included free with every 5 rolls of tape.
Designed to fit all standard 15/16" - 1" T-Bar Ceiling Systems.
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.
Certain ProLite ceiling tiles are 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. Click here for more information.
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.

Make sure the temperature in the room is 60-80F and low humidity.
Small dabs of direct mount adhesive (a.k.a. glue) must be applied to the back of the tape every 6 inches. Drag the dab along the length to spread it out somewhat. The self-adhesive backing on the strips/tape IS NOT a permanent adhesive, it is meant to hold long enough for the glue to cure. Failure to use glue may result in the failure of the tape to adhere to the ceiling. Approximately 1 Tube of adhesive is needed per 5 rolls of tape. We provide Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive free with purchase or you can use a more expensive adhesive like Loctite Power Grab All Purpose (available locally in most big box stores).
Trim to fit exactly; do not overlap the tape in any areas.
Great inexpensive alternative to creating a ceiling of continuous color that seems almost seamless. Only issue I have had is that some locations needed the construction adhesive to stay in place, but it was expected.
