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 2x2 grid tile is our most popular drop ceiling tile. Its classic simplicity makes it a great option for any type of space. Our customers are continually amazed at its ability to transform the look of their room. Being that it is FDA compliant, it is an excellent choice for restaurants. 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 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.

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.

To add a bit of design flare, consider adding Grid Tape or Grid Strips. Or, to avoid the extra expense, you can paint your grid.

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
Certain ProLite ceiling tiles are approved drop-out ceiling panels that can be installed beneath fire sprinklers.

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

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)

Amazing upgrade

These were the perfect fit to upgrade our main room in the office. There are skylights above so the translucent ones still keep everything bright. When I got them, I was a little concerned that they seemed a little flimsy, but I realized by design that's part of what makes them easy to install and from below you wouldn't know the difference. Great buy for an easy and inexpensive upgrade to the office.

Just right for my LED lighting project

I have installed a drop ceiling with these tiles in my 7 ft. by 15 ft. kitchen. I have a one foot strip of LED's mounted on the ceiling centered above each tile. I used 2700K strips which have 18 LED's. The effect is very nice and adds a warm glow to my kitchen.

Fabulous update!

These give my old kitchen a modern look, allow great light with new LED ceiling lights and taping the frame to match provides the right finishing touch. It's such a simple way to make an enormous improvement! Thank you!

Huge improvement for small price.

Looks great and fits perfect

Thsse ceiling tiles came quickly and fit perfectly in our ceiling grid. Much more stylish and mount flush to the ceiling which also helped make the room feel larger not protruding through the grid.

TOTAL Game Changer!

The orangish-yellowish 70's light panels in our kitchen were HIDEOUS. When I found these online- I ordered them immediately. Jason communicated clearly by email when my order was processed, shipped and delivered. I can't even tell you how much better these look. If you're thinking about it- go for it! You won't be disappointed with the product or the service!
