The Legacy faux tin Border tiles are intended for border use only.

The tile is not intended for use as a tile at its full size, yet with intricate design elements and attention to the most minute of details it will provide beauty that is sure to enhance the look of a ceiling. It provides framework for the overall appearance, giving full attention to the center of the ceiling where your tile of choice is showcased.

Our Legacy tiles are made of durable, UV stabilized .030" vinyl. They are water resistant, easy to clean, lightweight and easy to install. And, because they are water resistant, Legacy tiles are mold and mildew resistant, too! All of our Legacy ceiling tiles have been tested and achieve a Class A fire rating - essential for commercial or residential installations that require a fire rating for ceiling tiles to meet local fire codes.

These tiles work for both grid mount and direct mount applications. It fits standard 15/16 - 1-1/2 inch suspension systems. These tiles give the decorative, tin ceiling look at an affordable price.

Highlights:
If you're worried about what to use for your border tiles, the Legacy Border Tile is the perfect option. They can be used for drop ceiling or direct mount application. At .030" thick, it is twice as thick as our other series of tiles.

Things to Consider:
This tile is not intended for use as a full sized tile. Its flat design works best cut to size. When cut to length and laid flat in your grid, it eliminates the worry of gaps. Since they are only .030" thick, they are very easy to cut with scissors or a utility knife.

These border tiles are exclusively designed to match our Legacy Collection of tiles. If you are using another brand, it won't be an exact color match.

Can be used in grid, or glued up. For glue up, we recommend Dap Weldwood Contact Cement, or PL Premium Advanced (Loctite brand).

Waterproof
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.

How to Install Glue-Up Ceiling Tiles

Adhesives -vs- Staples
Adhesive is recommended when installing our vinyl tiles, because the tiles can crack when using staples. We recommend Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive.

Tools Needed

  • Tape measure
  • Pencil
  • Chalk line (recommended)
  • Straight edge
  • Scissors or Aviation (Tin) Snips
  • Adhesive (about 1 tube for every 8 tiles)
  • Paper towels and water for clean-up
  • Decorative Strips (if not overlapping tiles)
  • Eye protection

Surface Types and Methods of Installation

  • Sheetrock, Drywall, Plaster, Cement, Wood Paneling, Plywood
    Install the tiles directly to the ceiling using an adhesive that is compatible with both the ceiling and the ceiling tile.
  • Wood Furring Strips
    Furring strips are a great solution for rough ceilings that would require a lot of work to fix. Level with shims as you install them to give a flat mounting surface. Space out the furring strips according to your tile spacing determined below. If installing 2x4 tiles, we recommend doing a 2x2 pattern so the middle of the tile can also be adhered.
  • Popcorn / Stucco / Cottage Cheese Ceilings
    Ceiling tiles should never be applied directly to popcorn ceilings. Either remove the ceiling texture, add a new layer of drywall or 1/4" hardiebacker over the surface, or install furring strips. NOTE: If removing texture installed before the mid-1980's, test beforehand for asbestos, which may require removal by a licensed contractor.

Determine Tile Spacing
Using Grid Strips? (Required for ProLite, optional for Legacy and Designer)
Spacing exactly 24"x24" or 24"x48" is recommended, as it leaves a small gap that the grid strip will cover (test the spacing with two tiles and a grid strip).

Overlapping - No Grid Strips (required for Manchester Ceiling Tile, optional for Legacy and Designer Series)
Place a few tiles on the floor and determine your preferred overlap. Measure the tile spacing in this position. The grid you draw will be smaller than your tile due to the overlap (e.g. if your tile is 23 3/4" and you have a 1/2" overlap, you will draw your grid at 23 1/4").

Note: Everywhere 4 adjacent tiles overlap, the tile thickness compounds. Often, the ceiling height makes this unnoticeable. However, if desired, you can trim 2 or 3 tiles to minimize the thickness.

Planning Your Layout
Use grid paper and map out your ceiling. Indicate the position of lights, vents, and any other fixtures or obstructions to help determine your layout.

Note: If the ceiling tile you have chosen has a large amount of relief, consider using a flatter border tile in the spaces where there are lights, vents or other obstructions.

Consider the main, most visible area of your space as well as the longest runs of tiles. These are usually the lines you want square to your starting wall (used as the base for your lines). Most rooms are not square and many times tile layout is a compromise of room shape and border tile size needs.

Using the tile spacing you determined above, draw the tile grid in your layout. Many people prefer equal width border tiles on opposing walls, and a larger border is often preferred over a small one.

Mark Grid On Ceiling
Use a chalk line (or pencil) to put your layout onto the ceiling to keep everything straight. Be precise; if you are off by only 1/8" on each tile, after 8 tiles you will be off a whole inch! Space your chalk lines according to your determined spacing.

Before You Begin
Your surface needs to be smooth, clean, and dry. Test your adhesive and tile combination in a small area before committing to doing the whole ceiling.

Installing the First Tile
Make sure all surfaces are clean, as well as your hands. Any oils on the ceiling, tiles, or your hands can affect the adhesive performance. Latex gloves are a great option, keeping oils off the tiles and keeping your hands clean of adhesive.

If using grid strips, each tile will be installed at the center of its "grid" box, not touching any of the lines. For overlapping installations without grid strips, it is easiest to align two edges of the tile to the drawn grid lines (e.g. the bottom and right edges if you are working from top to bottom and left to right) so that you don't cover any lines you'll need for a subsequent tile.

Apply a bead of adhesive all the way around the perimeter of the backside of the tile. Make the bead 1/8" to 3/16" in size. If the tile center lays flat on the ceiling, add a 4" "X" to the center section with adhesive. If the tile has a design where only a few areas touch the ceiling, place dabs of adhesive on those sections. Keep a damp towel handy to clean up any adhesive that may seep out.

Gently place the tile close to its final location next to your chalk lines. Lightly press the tile to the ceiling as you slide it into position. This lets the adhesive spread out and smear a bit. Once you are satisfied that the tile is in place, firmly press it to the ceiling, rubbing out any bumps in the adhesive.

Second Tile - With Overlap
Use the same gluing technique as the first tile. Place the second tile next to your first one, aligning to the same edges of the grid lines (e.g. bottom and right) as your first tile. It will overlap by your predetermined amount. Continue to place full sized tiles, remaining lined up on your grid lines.

Second Tile - Without Overlap
Use the same gluing technique as the first tile. Center the second tile in its respective "grid" space next to the first. The edges of each tile should NOT be touching. Dry fit the Grid Strip to confirm you are placing the tiles with the correct spacing.

Border Tiles
Measure the open space from the installed tile to the wall, adding overlap if not using grid strips. Make sure to take measurements at each end of the space, as the measurements are often different due to inconsistencies in construction. Make sure the tile is facing the correct direction. Transfer your measurements to your border tile and cut it.

Decorative Strips
For best results, make sure the temperature in the room is 60-80F and low humidity.

Glue
Apply small dabs of direct mount adhesive (a.k.a. glue) every 8 inches (one at each end and two spaced in the middle). The self-adhesive backing on the strip 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 strips to adhere to the ceiling.

Approximately 1 tube of adhesive is needed per 5 packs of strips. We provide Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive free with purchase or you can use Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Adhesive (available locally in most big box stores).

Strips should be butted up to one another. Do not overlap! Always start at the same end with each consecutive strip. Always dry-fit first, before peeling off the backing, to see if any trimming is needed.

Take your first strip. The dot at the end should be directly over the intersection of 4 tiles. Once you have the strip lined up, peel the backing from the self adhesive and apply adhesive to the back of the strip (see above). Run all the strips one direction first.

Finish by installing the strips that run perpendicular to the tiles. Each strip will need to be trimmed, so keep a pair of scissors or snips in your pocket and cut off the dotted end.


How To Install Legacy Border Tile Antique Silver 2x4 - Box of 10 Ceiling Tiles

Tools Needed for Installation

  • Tape Measure
  • Pencil
  • Straight edge (optional)
  • Scissors or Aviation (Tin) Snips
  • Gloves
  • Eye Protection

Your Old Tiles
Have old tiles still in good condition? Reuse them to add heat and sound insulation as well as support regular insulation above your tiles!

  • If your new tile design is flat on the back with no lip around the perimeter, slide it into place below your existing tile, leaving the existing tile in place.
  • Or push your existing tiles up out of place and turn them slightly to rest on top of the grid system. NOTE: this is likely not compliant with commercial building codes, so verify if this is an option.

Insulation Above ProLite Series Tiles
Due to the Legacy Border Tile Antique Silver 2x4 - Box of 10's thin construction, regular fiberglass insulation is too heavy be laid on top. If insulation above your ceiling tiles is important, you have a few options:

  • Use SoniGuard insulation: the only insulation that can safely sit directly on top of the Legacy Border Tile Antique Silver 2x4 - Box of 10 tile.
  • Support on your old tiles (see above).
  • Place 1x1 or 1x2 wood furring strips across the top of the grid to use as support for insulation.
  • Secure the insulation to the "real ceiling" of your space, leaving the tops of the tiles clear of any need to support weight.

Clean Grid (If Using Grid Strips)
Use rubbing alcohol or 409 to remove dirt and oils from your grid. This is easier to do before putting up your new tiles.

Installing - Start with Full Tiles
Our Legacy Border Tile Antique Silver 2x4 - Box of 10 ceiling tile is meant only to be a border or partial tile (due to lack of structure, it will bow slightly as a full tile). Start by placing all of the full sized tiles first so you can verify that your grid is properly aligned/spaced prior to cutting partial tiles.

Cutting Border / Partial Tiles
Use a tape measure or straightedge to measure the size your tiles need to be. Transfer those measurements to the back side of the tile with a pencil or grease pencil, mark a straight line, and cut!

Recessed / Can Lights (optional)
Choose a tile design that has a large enough flat area for the light bezel to lay flush once installed. As with standard mineral fiber tiles, traditional can lights must have grid mounting brackets so that the weight of the light is supported by the grid system and not the tile.

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 template to mark the hole in the tile (usually the light bezel itself will be close if no template is available). Cut the opening with scissors or a razor blade.

Caution
Unshielded fixtures, especially those using halogen lighting, present a risk of fire or melting the tiles.

Clip-In 'Puck' LED Lights (optional)
Due to the lack of structure and rigidity of the Legacy Border Tile Antique Silver 2x4 - Box of 10, it cannot bear the weight of any form of lighting, regardless of how ´┐Żlightweight´┐Ż it may be. Installing in this fashion poses a significant safety hazard, as the tile could fall from the grid.

High Temperature Areas
The Legacy Border Tile Antique Silver 2x4 - Box of 10 tile is 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.

Installing Decorative Grid Strips (optional)
Make sure your grid system is clean, using rubbing alcohol or 409 to remove dirt and oils.

For best results, make sure the temperature in the room is 60-80F and low humidity.

Glue
Apply small dabs of direct mount adhesive (a.k.a. glue) along the back of the strips. The self-adhesive backing 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 strips to adhere to the ceiling.

Approximately 1 tube of adhesive is needed per 5 packs of strips. We provide Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive free with purchase or you can use Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Adhesive (available locally in most big box stores).

Strips should be butted up to one another. Do not overlap! Always start at the same end with each consecutive strip. Always dry-fit first, before peeling off the backing, to see if any trimming is needed.

Do not use for suspended ceilings

Can not replace tiles for suspended ceilings. Although these tiles look nice they are built cheap for the price. I bought them to replace former light openings that I did not have replacement ceiling tiles for. It has very thin plastic, thinner than the clear 2x4s bought at store for 1.98 each. I glued them to the clear tiles because they sagged about 1.5" below ceiling. It still sags, just not as much now.. overall panel has nice color, just stinks they have no structure to them

We're glad you were able to figure out a way to make these work as a full tile Eric. If directly mounting to the ceiling they can work for the full ceiling project, but when used in a suspended ceiling they are designed for use only as a border tile around the edges of the room.

Looks great with the Milan Tiles

Using this as filler for the smaller space around the perimeter of the room worked very well.

The 2' x 4' sag length wise.

We had to reinforce the tiles so they would not sag. We glued furring strips to the back side to span the grid. This works but shouldn't be necessary. They look nice but should be made sturdier.
