BrandLegacy Ceiling Tiles
Old World style and modern day ease come together in our Legacy faux tin tiles. Intricate design elements with attention to the most minute of details provide beauty that is sure to enhance any room's decor.
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 in standard 15/16" -1" suspension systems. These tiles give the decorative, tin ceiling look at an affordable price.
The Simply Rustic tile is a perfect addition to any rustic interior. Designed for use in grid applications, you’ll find them very easy to install. At .030” thick, it is twice as thick as our other series of tiles. Our Legacy Grid Strips are the perfect complementary piece to add a finished appearance to your ceiling. Achieve that vintage, aged metal style with this tile.
Things to Consider:
These tiles are only for drop grid applications. Because most grid systems are not the same color as the tile, you may want to consider options that make the grid look just as great as the tiles. Our Legacy Grid Strips are the perfect solution.
Your ceiling will more than likely have partial tiles at the perimeter, which means you will have to cut your tiles to size for those areas. Since this tile recesses slightly at 3/8”, it will work well at the borders. Keep in mind the slight spacing where it recesses will be visible. This is a standard characteristic of tiles with this type of recessed design.
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.

Warranty Conditions and Limitations
This warranty covers material defects in the ceiling tile when used in a standard ceiling application. It does not cover labor, consequential or incidental damages.

We're Ready to Help
Unlike a car, there is very little that can go wrong with these ceiling tiles. However, in the rare event that you do encounter a defect with your tiles, we are here and ready to help. Just give us a call and we will work with you to identify the problem and, in case of defect, supply you with replacement tiles.
We know that projects take a while, and sometimes plans change. That's why, we offer a great return policy on all non-custom products:
Have old tiles still in good condition? Reuse them to add heat and sound insulation as well as support regular insulation above your new tiles by pushing your existing tiles up out of place and turning them slightly to rest on top of the grid system. Watch our video
NOTE: this is likely not compliant with commercial building codes, so verify if this is an option.
Due to the Simply Rustic's thin construction, regular fiberglass insulation is too heavy be laid on top. If your space requires insulation above the tiles you have a few options:
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.
Apply small dabs of direct mount adhesive (a.k.a. glue) along the back of the strips or tape every 6 inches or so. For grid tape, 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 strips or tape to adhere to the ceiling.
Approximately 1 tube of adhesive is needed per 5 packs of strips or 5 rolls of tape. 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).
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 small dabs of 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.
Start in a corner and work one direction. Apply small dabs of adhesive every 6 inches and drag along the length to spread out somewhat. Trim the tape to fit when you reach the end of a run. Finish off by covering the remaining cross T's (shorter grid sections). Trim the tape to fit the space exactly (do not overlap).
Place all of the full sized tiles first so you can:
The Simply Rustic ceiling tile is very easy to cut with regular household scissors. Put measurements on the back side of the tile with a pencil or grease pencil, mark a straight line, and cut! For tiles with a decorative design, you have 4 options for the perimeter of your room, choose the one that fits your taste!
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, you must choose lights that have grid mounting brackets so that the weight of the light is supported by the grid system and not the tile. The Simply Rustic is not strong enough to support even newer, light-weight clip-in 'puck' style of LED light. Our heavier-duty Signature Series Ceiling Tiles have worked with certain styles of puck lighting.
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.
Unshielded fixtures, especially those using halogen lighting, present a risk of fire or melting the tiles.
The Simply Rustic 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.
If you are installing tiles outdoors or near a door, you may find that a few of your tiles have a tendency to lift out of the grid. The very simple fix is to use our Uplift Prevention Clips or tape inexpensive, powerful magnets to the back of the tiles in a few spots to hold it to the grid. 30-pack on Amazon
