Can I install pot lights with this style of panel

Asked by: Alf
Yes, the large square section in the center of the Stratford tile is the perfect space for a pot light (aka can light). Please remember that per the International Building Code, the weight of the can lights must be supported by the ceiling grid, not the ceiling tile. You can find additional information on installing can lights in Ceilume ceiling tiles by viewing the following video:

Are these rigid tiles? What are they made from? Thank you

Asked by: Mallard70
The Ceilume Stratford tiles are made from a rigid vinyl that is .013" thick. They are very thin, but the "square within a square" pattern that is molded into the material gives them a great deal of structural rigidity. You'll find that they are lightweight and flexible for easy installation but rigid enough to provide a beautiful ceiling for years to come. Feel free to call us at 800-557-0654 to request a free full-sized sample so you can see them for yourself.

Do you have a flat panel (2x4) that could be used for edge trim that is made of the same material (thin PVC)? I do not like the way the tile shows all the holes if I trim the Stratford panels.

Asked by: Rita 47
Since all Ceilume tiles are made of a thin, rigid vinyl, they must have some sort of geometric feature to give them the stiffness needed to sit properly in a ceiling grid. The 2x2 Serenity is our only completely flat tile, and we've made that tile stable by using our thicker .030" vinyl and molding a lip around the perimeter of the back of the tile. Unfortunately that trick does not work on the larger surface area of a 2x4 tile so we are unable to make any of our 2x4 tiles as a flat panel.

Can I attach these to the dropped ceiling panels? I hate the commercialmtiles but it is in a small area and I would just like to put them up to cover those ceiling panels.

Asked by: Debbie
The Stratford tile can not be installed beneath a standard mineral fiber tile. The Stratford's "square within a square" pattern projects upwards from the ceiling and will deform if a tile is placed on top of it. If you'd like to install a more decorative tile beneath your existing ceiling tile, you can do so using one of these patterns:

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I've never installed ceiling tiles so easily as with these tiles, nor have I managed it on my own before. Granted, I was replacing my old tiles so I didn't have to rehang the grid. A ladder, pair of scissors, measuring tape and a marker was all I needed. I had no problems cutting the circle to affix the louver but I thought of my fabric circle cutter. I did try that - it will cut up to a 12" circle. That sliced through the tile with no problem and I will be using it to do the rest of my installation (I still have another 1500 sq ft +/- to go). I have also been impressed with the durability and strength of the tiles. They look great and gave my room a major facelift.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The ceiling is finished and we love it. I raise Bengal cats and the tiles were used in two kitten rooms in our basement. The rooms look great. This is only the second dropped ceiling my brother has installed and he had no trouble at all. He liked working with the Ceilume tiles over conventional tiles. We didn't lose much ceiling height due to the thinness of the tiles. My uncle and cousin used the same tiles when finishing their basements and told me about them. I'm so glad they did. On a scale from 1-5 I give them a 10! Thanks for this super product. Can't wait until the entire project is finished.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy Upgrade Was happy I was able to order directly from the company. Ceiling tiles are as described very easy to install. Was able to cut tiles with scissors which simplified the project and was able to complete without assistance. I was replacing insulated acoustic tile which I left in place. They lay perfectly on top of new tiles working a insulation. The new ceiling looks beautiful. The appearance is decorative and almost looks like wood. I am very pleased with this product. The look and the ease of installation and would certainly recommend this product and would order from Ceilume again for another project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from We are currently waiting for a fire alarm and (2) 6 inch can lights to be installed and wired in. After that she'll be done. We love the ceiling, simple, elegant, and a truly fast and clean installation. As soon as I get it done I will send pictures of the install. We have turned 400+ square feet of basement into a master bedroom and bath that now has hotel like qualities due to the fact that the ceiling looks so great. I will however recommend to anyone that if they go with the white tiles to purchase the white grid tape to match. My order for tape will be coming in soon. We are extremely happy!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I would rate the Ceilume tiles 5 out of 5. They arrived exactly as described and were a pleasure to install. This was a new installation utilizing Armstrong grid materials. The tiles were very easy to cut with household scissors just as described in you instructions. Truthfully, I was skeptical and expected to go buy heavy duty scissors; but there was no need. As a "do it yourself" project, you couldn't find a better solution. These tiles gave me a very classy finish while minimizing my time investment. I would recommend to anyone as replacements for existing tiles or for a new project.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from I purchased a room full of Stratford white tiles and love them. I rate them a 5 on a scale of 1 to 5. A few years ago, I used them in most of my basement and I get rave reviews from everyone. Finally, I broke down and ordered them for my workshop as well. This was mostly to keep sawdust from the insulation in the ceiling and because they were so easy. In this case, I actually installed them only 3 inches from the joists which was only possible because they are flexible and easy to cut and install. I proudly show them to any visitors and brag on how easy they are and how good they luck.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from The installation was easy and it all turned out very nice. This was a basement installation with no windows so we wanted to make the place away the blahs. We put a lot of fluorescent fixtures above the ceiling and surrounded the translucent tiles with a row and a half of copper. We did the floor in natural maple, along with the stairwell and a built-in bookcase and painted the trim white. We have recently sold the house and when the new owner first came down the stairs after we finished, he said, "This is incredible!" I think that says it all.

Rated 4 out of 5 by from I am very happy with the product, I am a contractor and use your tiles often, your tiles may cost my costumers $1.00 to 2.00 more per tile compared to other tiles I have used but the money I save them on the ease of your products install makes up for that and they end up with a nicer look. The only negative I can say is that I wish you made a slightly off white tile that would better match the tracks without having to use the tape, other than that great product I will be using in the future and I always recommend to my clients, I would rate the tiles a 4.5.
