Product Overview

Cambridge Recycled Ceiling Panels are perfect on their own or as lay-under panels in refacing installs... and now they're 100% recycled!

Favored for their graceful projecting features, Cambridge Ceiling Panels are perfect by themselves or when used as a lay-under panels in suspended ceilings where you want to leave your existing mineral fiber tiles in place. Made from our Signature Series 0.030 in. thick vinyl plastic, they are thermoformed from molds based on original, hand-crafted tin ceiling panel designs and will add a decorative focal point sure to get people talking.

All of our Signature Series panels are Class A fire rated, 100% recyclable, completely waterproof, Greenguard Gold Certified for indoor air quality, and made in the USA. For the look of plaster or tin, with the flexibility, durability, and versatility of vinyl - look no further!

In addition to providing the ultimate in sustainability, our new random gray material has all of the features of our other colors and at a reduced cost! It also gives you a unique design opportunity - because this material is made from 100% post-manufacturing scrap, the color (while always some shade of gray) is truly random as it is determined by the material that is recycled. The color tends to be a light "charcoal", but it can shift from dark to light, from batch to batch, and even within a single order, ensuring your ceiling will be unlike any other.

What tile patterns need the 1"x2ft strips over the joint lines. Does this one need them.?

Asked by: Ron
Decorative Strip are only required when you are gluing your tiles to a drwyall or plywood substrate; the Decorative Strips are necessary to cover the joints where the tiles butt together. If you are installing the tiles in a suspended ceiling grid, then the Decorative Strips would be useful for color matching the grid to the tile, but the are not required.

Will These allow for light and HVAC vents installation?

Asked by: Rajeed
Ceilume ceiling tiles work well with recessed lighting and HVAC vents. It's important to remember that the International Building Code requires all lights, HVAC vents, speakers, life safety devices, etc must be supported by the ceiling grid or structure above. These items should never be supported by any ceiling tile. Here is a link to short video showing how to install recessed lighting in a Ceilume ceiling tile: If you're installing LED "puck lights" please give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654 to discuss the extra step required for that type of light fixture.

Can these tiles be installed with sprinklers protruding thru them? Are these tiles considered drop out tiles?

Asked by: pete
There are only three safety-tested and approved methods of installing Ceilume Ceiling Tiles in conjunction with fire-supression sprinkler systems. If you have ceiling sprinklers, you must install your tiles in one of the following ways: 1) Drop-Out Ceiling Tiles Beneath Sprinklers 2) Pass-Through Sprinklers - Ceiling Tiles with Oversized Holes 3) Pass-Through Sprinklers - Refacing Ceiling Tiles with Mineral Fiber Backing Panels You can view the installation instructions for all 3 methods by clicking on the following link (the first sprinkler information is Item #8 in the instructions): Cambridge tiles are a natural fit for method #3 listed above. Please give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654 if you'd like to discuss your installation in detail. We're here Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 4:30 pm PST.

To confirm I can place 9" fiberglass batts on the Cambridge tiles

Asked by: Jerry
While Ceilume ceiling tiles have been tested for durability and fire safety when used with Soniguard Drop Ceiling Insulation, we have not been tested for use with 9" batt insulation. If there are floor joists directly above your suspended ceiling, the suggested method of installation would be to install the batts between the joists above rather than directly on the Cambridge tiles. If you'd like to receive a free full-sized sample of the Cambridge tile to make sure it will work with your insulation, give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654. We're here Monday through Friday from 7:00 am 4:30 pm PST.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Elevated and Chic We were gifted the Cambridge Ceiling Tile by Ceilume for the renovation of our presentation room at our interior design studio and we couldn't be more in love with how they look! These tiles completely elevated our space and gave our ceiling a chic look that really added to the rest of the space. Installation was super easy and we can't wait to use these tiles in more of our office spaces!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from A Quality Product I am very pleased with the quality the ceiling tiles. I used the thicker tiles with the insulation for basement remodel. The flexibility of the tiles allowed me to drop the grid a minimal amount (~2.5"). I personally liked the look of using Cambridge tiles flipped upside down on the larger border tiles that had to be cut. The Sales team was very helpful and responsive. A great product and company to work with.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful and easy to install They are so beautiful. Installation was easy. So much easier to cut these for lighting the. The old, thick versions that gave off a lot of dust.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Beautiful andEasy to Install I worked with John and he has hit a home run with this product ! 100% quality, beautiful finish, easy to work with. Results better than expected. I took an older drop ceiling grid, cleaned it and painted it gloss black. I'm very satisfied. Thanks John.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Fantastic Product! I did five rooms in a colonial home with ceilings that dated back to the '70s. I can't describe how awesome it looks now. Easy to install. Great customer service!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy to use. Look great. I had never used tiles like this before. They are lightweight and easy to cut. They look great. I have received many compliments. These particular tiles that can be placed over existing suspended ceiling tiles allowed me to keep the existing recessed lights.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Thank you for the follow up - we love our ceilume ceiling tiles that we installed in our finished basement - very easy and took very little time. I would rate the entire process from customer service, (Dave sending me installation photos of the border tiles I was interested in installed in his office sold me) receiving of samples and photos provided to delivery and installation a 5!
