Recessed Lighting

Grid-mounted (can) lighting is a great illumination option. Choose a tile design that has sufficient flat area in the middle to accommodate the light opening and trim ring, and choose fixtures that come with grid-suspension brackets so that the weight of the light is supported by your T-bar and not by your tile. Coffered ceiling tiles may require some additional steps. Contact us for more information.


Fully-Illuminated Ceilings

Ceilume's Feather-Light Ceiling Tiles are available in translucent vinyl in addition to our opaque colors and finishes. Translucent ceiling tiles can be installed directly under lighting fixtures, or throughout the entirety of your grid for a fully-illuminated ceiling.

For best results, install your translucent ceiling tiles at least 6" below your lighting fixtures, and use your tiles in conjunction with AcoustoTherm® Backpanels.

Guiding Principle #6: Be unique. Stand out even in the most crowded marketplace.
