Product Description

Quick Facts

  • Lasts a lifetime
  • Waterproof
  • Clean with soap and water
  • Mold and mildew resistant.
  • Stain resistant
  • Flexible yet strong
  • Lightweight and easy to install

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, with the exception of our Soniguard insulation; it has been tested and approved for this purpose as an alternative to traditional insulation. 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
Certain ProLite ceiling tiles are 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. 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

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.

Just give us a call and we'll work with you to identify the problem and, in case of defect, supply you with replacement tiles.

  • 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)

Look a lot better than old armstrong tiles

I've never like the looks of the old drop ceiling tiles. These are a lot cleaner looking. I'd really rate at 4.5 stars but that wasn't an option. The .5 subtraction is because some of the tiles have minor waves in them. But still way better than the old armstrong tiles. Cutting where required was very easy.

Hi Brian, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We're so glad it all worked well and that you love the look. These tiles should be pristine, and any 'minor waves' may indicate a defect. While very rare, please know that we stand behind our product and are happy to immediately replace any products that arrive with damage or a defect. Our team is here to help, and we'd love to be part of your next project, so don't hesitate to reach out. Thanks again for your review, and for including us in your project!

Very satisfied

I don't get it.? You know what the product is. Having said that I am very satisfied with it. It was bought because it looks so much better than the "regular" panels. And it really is a very nice looking ceiling. It costs about twice as much but I did it myself so saves the contractor's cost.

Looks great, please package better

We bought 100pcs of these for our basement. This product looks great. It is thin but does its job. About a dozen tiles had cracked corner whole in transit but since we used those for cut pieces around the edges it wasn't a big deal. Otherwise I'd have to deal with exchange.

Hi Dmitry, thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We are very sorry to hear that your tiles were damaged in transit. While those situations are rare, we are always happy to re-ship any damaged products when needed. Thankfully you were able to use these for your edge spaces, but if you ever have an issue in the future, please let us know right away, and we will make it right. Thank you again for your review, and for including us in your project!

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.

Looks great

These tiles look great. There is a reduction in noise insulation over standard tiles, so if you are installing them in a room where noise travel outside the room is a concern, use the sonigaurd insulation above them. For a completely finished look, grid covers work well to match color between the tile and the grid. Used all three products (tiles, grid cover and insulation) and the results are spectacular. Great products at a good price.
