The Better Than Tin tiles are dent and kink-resistant, lightweight, and easy to install in suspended ceiling or direct-mount applications.

Graton, CA (PRWEB) June 29, 2010 -- Today Ceilume announced the launch of its Better Than Tin line of decorative, metallic finish ceiling tiles. Manufactured with a highly advanced thermoforming technique using specially engineered laminated vinyl, these tiles offer a high-quality finish rivaling the aesthetics and durability of historic tin tiles, but at much lower prices. Better Than Tin tiles are dent and kink-resistant, incredibly lightweight, and easy to install in suspended ceiling, glue-up and re-facing applications.
The Better Than Tin collection is available in twenty-two styles and four finishes including Brushed Bronze, Brushed Copper, Brushed Pewter and Paintable White. The collection offers a Feather-Light series for grid mount (suspended / drop ceiling) installations and a Signature series for direct mount (glue-up) installations. Starting as low as $1.99 per square foot for the Feather-Light tiles and ranging up to $4.73 per square foot for the Signature Series, Ceilume's Better Than Tin tiles cost 50% less than the leading manufacturers' metal tiles. Ceilume is the only company of its kind offering free ground shipping on all orders in the US and Canada. Customers can also order up to three free evaluation samples, allowing them to test-install the actual tiles before buying.
Unlike the more expensive and labor-intensive metal tiles, Better Than Tin tiles require no special tools or expertise to install, making them ideal for residential DIY projects or commercial applications, such as restaurants, salons, spas, or hotels. The Feather-Light tiles can simply be popped into place and the Signature Series tiles can easily be applied with staples or glue. Both can be cut with household scissors. Ceilume also offers a line of accessories; including decorative grid and joint strips, AcoustoTherm backpanels for improved acoustics, and uplift prevention clips where needed.
Better Than Tin offers the only decorative, tin-finish ceiling tiles certified by the GreenGuard Environmental Institute for indoor air quality, and suitable for children and schools. Due to their vinyl construction, these tiles are not affected by moisture, will resist sagging and staining, and will not harbor dust, mold, mildew, bacteria or odors. The lightweight design also uses fewer resources to manufacture and ship, and all Ceilume tiles are Class A fire rated for safety.
The decorative ceiling industry has evolved over the years from the heavy plaster used in the 1800s to the safer, more durable tin ceiling tiles of the early 1900s. Now, in 2010, an even more advanced solution has entered the marketplace with the Better Than Tin collection.
"Our ceiling tiles rival the beauty of our metal tile competitors and far exceed them in ease-of-use, resilience and affordability," said Ed Davis, president of Ceilume.
