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 Southland 2x4 Grid Tile is a great style if you want to upgrade the look of your current ceiling while maintaining a laid-back feel. 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 Southland 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 framework so that it is not in direct contact with the tile.

If your grid is already white and in good condition, it should match the white Southland 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.

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.

5 Year Limited Warranty
You're making a beautiful upgrade to your ceiling and we're here to help protect that investment. We guarantee that your ceiling tiles will be free from manufacturing defects for a period of five years from the original date of purchase.

Warranty Conditions
This warranty covers material defects in the ceiling tile when used in a standard ceiling application where temperatures do not exceed 120F. It does not cover labor, consequential or incidental damages. This warranty is not transferable and applies to the original purchaser only. Please note that painting the ceiling tile will void the warranty and may change some of its properties like its fire rating.

  • 90 day return window with no restocking fees
  • Products must be unused/new and in their original boxes
  • Customer is responsible for return shipping cost (we are happy to help arrange shipping)

Let there be light!

Natural daylight from skylights way above the dropped ceiling, once we realized this we had to google if these existed and they do! Its nice to get some natural light in our space with practically none. Thank you!

Very happy

I am a 66 year old woman who is 5' tall (weight to be excluded) who purchased a 1929 home that needless to say needed help. The kitchen ceiling was a disaster with broken plastic inserts and soiled ceiling tiles. I won't say the installation was a breeze, but I was able to insert/cut to size and place your ceiling tiles in myself. What an improvement they make:).

I really like how the translucent tile diffuses the light from my skylights and electric lighting, and the Southland pattern has a unique style of appearance.

The tiles brightened the whole room!

We originally had the ugly drop down white popcorn tiles, but when we installed the Southland Ceiling tiles it made the whole room feel new and clean. I would definitely recommend! Don, your Customer Specialist was a gem in answering all my questions !!

Looks Great

I went with black tiles and white grid. Looks good. The flexibility of this material creates some challenges during install. Would recommend going to 2x2 grid with this.

So many compliments on this ceiling tile. I used them to update an office that seemed outdated. At first, I kept my grid white as people said they liked the contrast but I am going to either buy the tape or paint it black to match. So easy to cut and place in. With these, you can make cuts you never could with a traditional ceiling tile because of how pliable they are. Would highly recommend.
