Our DuraClean tiles are made from UV Stabilized 1/8" (.125") thick vinyl plastic. This durable tile is perfect for industrial and commercial areas like; bottling and food processing plants, food preparation areas, schools, dorms, daycare, and educational facilities. Constructed from 100% PVC Vinyl, our DuraClean tiles are Class A Fire Rated and can be washed over and over without any damage to them. Backed by our 25 Year ProShield Warranty, DuraClean tiles are built for a lifetime of use.
Designed to fit all standard 15/16" - 1" T-Bar Ceiling Systems. Most of the thermoform ceiling tiles come in two sizes, 2'x2' and 2'x4'.
FYI - If you have a 2x4 grid ceiling, but would prefer the look of the 2x2 ceiling tiles, simply insert a 2' center T bar available online or at most local hardware stores...it's easy!
DuraClean panels can quickly and easily fit into almost any ceiling grid system. Available in the same size as any typical 2' x 2' ceiling tile, it can be the uncomplicated replacement for the tiles that are seen and found in any typical office locale. There are some grids that use a "stab and connect" system that may cause the corners of the tile to sit higher than the rest of the tile.
When installing DuraClean tiles in ceilings with sprinkler systems, leave at least a 1/4" gap around the edge of the sprinkler bezel to the tile. This allows the tile to fall away from the ceiling during a fire and not foul the sprinkler system.
To cut any DuraClean panel, mark and score the face of the tile with a utility knife and snap it away from the cut. A skill or table saw can also be used in cutting multiple tiles at once and a RotoZip or hole-saw for odd sizes shapes and circular holes - like sprinkler heads or can lights.
Use a mild soap and water solution or most household cleaners to clean the DuraClean ceiling tiles. Just spray the cleaner onto a clean rag and wipe. Power-washing DuraClean panels is also an option, but avoid placing the spray nozzle tip too close to the panel in order to prevent damage to the tile face. The tiles are unaffected by most corrosive chemicals, but you should avoid using acidic cleaners. Do not use abrasive cleansers to scrub.
Things happen; leaks in the roof, cooking mishaps, kids, we get it! All of these things can lead to stained tiles. Since the DuraClean tiles are mold/mildew resistant and washable, stains are easy to clean and you won’t have to worry about replacing them repeatedly! You have the option of installing them in the grid alone, or putting them directly under existing acoustic tiles, and you can lay regular insulation right on top of the tile. Also, because the DuraClean is flat, these tiles are easily cut so they are perfect for using in rooms with partial tiles around the perimeter. What’s not to love?

Tools Needed for Installation
Protective Film & Static
We recommend waiting to remove the protective film until just before you place the tile into the grid. This will protect the surface from minor damage as well as fingerprints. You should try to minimize rubbing or dragging the tiles across each other during handling and installation. PVC is really good at building up static electricity when rubbed together. If your tiles are retaining a static charge after removing the protective film, you can dissipate this charge by using a dryer fabric softener sheet or damp cloth and sweeping it across the surface of the tile.
Installing - Start with Full Tiles
Place all of the full sized tiles first so you can:
Cutting Border / Partial Tiles
Mark measurements on the back side of the tile with a pencil or grease pencil. Use a metal straightedge and score the tile several times, then bend at the score line to snap. You can also use a powered saw with a fine-toothed blade. Always make a test cut first.
Recessed / Can Lights (optional)
Place your light fixture and tile in the grid system. Adjust the light to its final position and mark this on the backside of your tile. Use the appropriate size template to mark the hole in the tile. Use a Dremel tool or something similar to cut out the hole.
We do not recommend can light fixtures that are not designed for direct contact with insulation nor do we recommend using halogen lighting. Unshielded fixtures, especially those using halogen lighting represent a risk of fire or melting the tiles.
High Temperature Areas
Our tiles are designed to operate in temperatures up to 120F. Higher temperatures can happen around heat registers, above stoves and ovens, around high temperature lighting, and in environments that intentionally have higher temperatures, like heat spas, and Hot Yoga/Bikram studios. Contact us if your space may be subjected to any of these conditions.
