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 Stratford grid tile is our most popular drop ceiling tile. Our customers are continually amazed at its ability to transform the look of their room. Its classic simplicity makes it a great option for any type of space. The repeating design of this 2x4 tile gives it the unique ability to create the look of a 2x2 tile, which can be nice in smaller spaces. 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:
Since the Stratford tile is not flat on the back, it is not suitable for use as a direct mount tile.

While it is only .013" thick, the embossed design gives it the rigidity and structure needed to support itself in the grid without sagging. To avoid the risk of sagging, we discourage placing any weight directly on the tile. 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 putting any weight on the Stratford.

It is more than likely that your room has partial tiles around the perimeter. Not to worry- The Stratford tile lays nice and flat in the grid when cut to any size. Since the recession of the design is only .5", the gap is unnoticeable for most applications. View product images and customer installation photos for examples.

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

UL Listing/Certification

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 iconCEILING TILE

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)

Transformed the look of my finished basement

I replaced all of my drop ceiling tiles with these. My previous drop ceiling tiles were fiberglas and created a mess whenever you had to move them, and they were unattractive. These tiles were the answer. Easy to trim/cut and install. The ceiling now looks great.

Product and installation conformed to website description

The panels arrived intact. Installation was easy. Due to room configuration, I had a fair amount of trimming to do but this was easy using a sharp scissors. Finished project looks good.

Loved it so much we purchased more and did the whole downstairs

This tile is light, easy to cut and put up. It really elevated the look of our downstairs. It's a HUGE improvement from the old drop ceiling tiles that were down there. Fast shipping. Excellent customer service. Also like how they give trim and tape options for having the framing match the colored tile.

Family room looks great

I was skeptical about cutting raised pattern tiles on the perimeter but they worked very well. Easy to cut and install and they look great. Used them on a basement family room and it makes the room look large and comfortable.

Good looking.

This is a very thin tile but it looks really good in-place. However, because it's so thin it is, therefore, floppy, and a little difficult to manage sometimes, but always easier to work with acoustical tiles.
