Product Overview

Stratford Ceiling Panels are cost-effective, easy-to-use, and our best-selling style. Made from our Feather-Light Series 0.013 in. thick vinyl plastic, they are unlike any ceiling panels you will ever see or feel. You may be surprised by their minimal weight, but their thermoformed design combined with the inherent strength of vinyl makes these tiles rigid, durable, and easy to install and maintain.

The “lume” in Ceilume stands for ILLUMINATION, and with our Transluminous™ Ceiling Tiles we give you three unique ways to let the light shine in, whether you want localized lighting effects or a fully illuminated ceiling. Our frosted material has no pigment, allowing greater light transmittance than translucent, yet still providing some light diffusion. Place tiles directly beneath lighting fixtures in traditional interiors, or throughout the entirety of your installation for a fully-illuminated ceiling effect.

All of our Feather-Light 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!

  • Installation Type: Standard 15/16-1 in. grid
  • Suitable for Borders: Yes, this style may be trimmed for use along borders
  • Dimensions: 2 ft. x 4 ft. (nominal)
  • Features: Recess 0.50 in. from tile face
  • Material: Transluminous™, 0.013 in. thick, rigid vinyl plastic
  • Warning: Not recommended for installation where ceiling temperatures exceed 120°F

Can these go over popcorn ceiling with glue

Asked by: Janis
Ceilume's Stratford tiles are intended for installation in a 1" or 15/16" wide ceiling grid; they can not be glued to any ceiling. Ceilume does have 17 different glue-up ceiling tiles but we dont recommend installing any of them over popcorn finish as the uneven nature of that finish will prevent you from having a smooth ceiling.

My ceiling is 9x13 ,how much tiles will I need

Asked by: Pamela
You will need about 36 tiles for that installation. To verify this or see what the layout will look like, go to the Stratford page look for the Ceiling Tile Calculator which is just below the Shopping Cart button. You can use that calculator to see how many tiles you'll need for a project, what the layout will look like, and even experiment with different tiles for a custom ceiling look. The Ceiling Tile Calculator is pretty simple to use, but if you have questions about the process please don't hesitate to call us at 800-557-0654.

What material are the tiles made of? Weight of each tile?

Asked by: Babs
Stratford Ceiling Tiles are made from our Feather-Light Series 0.013 in. thick vinyl plastic, they are unlike any ceiling tile you will ever see or feel. You may be surprised by their minimal weight (6.4 ounces per tile), but their thermoformed design combined with the inherent strength of vinyl makes these tiles rigid, durable, and easy to install and maintain.

Will the Stratford 2x2 tiles work with a direct mount grid system?

Asked by: PKF
Since the Stratford is a relatively thin ceiling tile (the total profile of the tile is .51" thick), it will work well with most direct mount Ceiling Grid systems. It's flexible nature allows it to be worked into tight spaces and the "square within a square" pattern gives it enough rigidity to last for years and years without sagging.

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 Love my new ceiling This product is fantastic. It is beautiful in my family room and I could not be happier how it turned out. Not only is it beautiful in my home, it was also a snap to put up. My husband did a 13'x22' ceiling in about 5 hours, and he is an absolute perfectionist. I think I could have done it in less time and I am 70 years old! The staff at Cielume was a pleasure to work with. They even sent two different tiles so that I could decide which one to use. I didn't even pay postage on them. It just doesn't get better than this. And the price was just as good. I have looked at other tiles and they were all at least twice the price, and they were delivered right to my home. I could NOT ask for anything more.

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 glow....chase 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.
