Lighting

Ceilume ceiling panels are available in white, four designer colors, six faux finishes, and three levels of light-transmitting materials that offer opportunities for innovative illumination schemes.

Opaque Ceilings

  • Bright white panels have high light reflectance for energy efficiency.
  • Solid colors and faux finishes satisfy any decorative scheme.
  • Panel's matte surface and relief cuts glare.
  • Molded relief casts distinctive shadows, especially when seen in glancing light.

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.

  • Panels are compatible with conventional lighting fixtures - recessed, troffer, pendant, uplight, and chandelier.
  • As with other suspended ceiling products, do not support light fixtures directly from ceiling panels. Instead, attach them to the above-ceiling structure or use approved fixture carriers.

Transluminous™ Ceilings

Translucent Ceiling Panels

Translucent

Create a fully-illuminated ceiling with uniform lighting distribution.

Frosted Ceiling Panels

Frosted

Offer more direct lighting and reveal a hint of what is above the ceiling.

8.99% reflectance, 76.81% transmittance

Clear Ceiling Panels

Clear

Maximize lighting and allow an unobstructed view of above-grid areas.

87.67% transmittance

Mix It Up

  • Create Patterns
    Install in checkerboard, striped, random, and layouts to direct the eye, vary the lighting effect, and suit the mood of a space.
  • Define Areas
    In a hotel lobby, for example, use opaque panels above a chandelier in the entry hall, a luminous ceiling over the registration desk, frosted panels beneath colored LEDs in the lounge, and clear panels for spotlight accents.
  • Wash Walls
    Use clear or frosted panels along the perimeter of the room with economical above-ceiling light fixtures to illuminate walls.

Peek-a-Boo Panels

Clear Panels with Direct Lighting

  • Beneath Spotlights
    Install spotlights above the ceiling instead of using expensive recessed fixtures.
  • Beneath Equipment
    Simplify maintenance by allowing valves, meters, and other above-ceiling equipment to be visually inspected from below. Stop worrying about equipment leaks; panels are not damaged by water and are easy to clean.
  • Beautifully Practical
    Peek-a-boo panels maintain the visual and functional integrity of the ceiling plane.
