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.

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!

Can install a slim canless recessed lighting on this ceiling panel? 

Asked by: Nikki
The International Building Code requires that all lights, speakers, HVAC grilles, etc are to be supported by the ceiling grid or the structure above. Ceiling tiles are not to be used as the sole support of any of those items. There are a variety of LED light support brackets that will make the installation easier and keep you code compliant. Please contact Ceilume at 800-557-0654 to discuss your light installation and get some tips on the best way to integrate light support brackets with the Stratford ceiling tile. We're here Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 4:30 pm PST.

Hi this is going in an existing kitchen ceiling grid that has fluorescent tubes above it. Just want to be sure the frosted effect will conceal the fixtures and conduit.

Asked by: connie
Ceilume has 3 different Transluminous ceiling tile finishes: Translucent, Frosted, and Clear. The Translucent tiles create a soft diffused glow throughout the ceiling. The Frosted let through quite a bit more light and do show a "hot spot" where the lights are, but you can not see conduit or light fixture supports through the tile. We'd be happy to send a free sample of the Frosted tile so you can make sure you're happy with the level of light transmittance. Just give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654; we're here Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 4:30 pm PST.

Are there any discounts based upon the number of tiles ordered? For example, does the price per sq foot go down if you order more than 50 or 100 tiles at a time?

Asked by: Brian
Yes, Ceilume offers quantity discounts at 100, 200, and 300 ceiling tiles. The website will automatically apply the appropriate discount once you have the required number of tiles in your shopping cart. We apply that discount to the total number of tiles; if you buy 80 of one style and 20 of a different style, you will receive the 100+ tile discount for the entire order.

If some of my tiles that need to be replaced are 12x24 can I cut these to fit? 

Asked by: Amt367
Yes, because Ceilume's Stratford ceiling tiles do not project down below the face of the ceiling grid they can be cut and installed as a partial tile in your suspended ceiling grid.

.Can these tiles be used in a bathroom

Asked by: Tom
All of Ceilume's ceiling tiles are made from a thin rigid vinyl material that is impervious to moisture. Since they do not absorb humidity or harbor mold and mildew, they're a perfect fit for a bathroom installation.

What rails do you recommend? I have purchased the Ceilume Strartford 2x4 ceiling panels.

Asked by: Lanny
Ceilume's Stratford Ceiling tiles can be installed in any standard 1" or 15/16" suspended ceiling grid. The material (vinyl or metal) and manufacturer don't matter: as long as the width is correct then the Stratford tiles will sit properly.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from pleasantly surprised These tiles are thin, like thin thin but are not supposed to sag. They look good and cut easily with just a scissors. My only complaint there were a few that were cracked. I would recommend. We put these in our VFW building

Rated 5 out of 5 by from great product! really great product! ordered the free sample and it arrived quickly. I was amazed! the tiles are thin, but flexible, making install pretty easy. we painted an existing grid after having the white "color- matched" at our favorite paint store. laid in the new tiles, and the new ceiling was pretty spectacular. the cost is quite reasonable, the installation pretty easy, and the effect when done really spectacular. highly recommend his prouduct!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from What a huge difference!! These panels were so easy to install and look amazing! They cut easily with scissors and look so professional. We did need to wash and paint the grids - had no clue how grungy they had looked! I had many installed before my husband walked in the door and he was so surprised it was that simple. Excellent product we would highly recommend.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from STRAFFORD SAVES THE DAY! I have a historic mid-century modern office building. It was built when drop ceilings were very new and the drop ceiling was placed only 1.5 inches below the rafters. So changing or removing or accessing the ceiling above the drop ceiling is nearly impossible. But Strafford tiles has saved the day, along with being moderate and beautiful! My staff (an up-scale Medical Spa) and clients love them! Great product!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Speechless I had an idea of what the ceiling would look like with the new panels. I’m blown away at how it came out. I look at it and say “wow”. Couldn’t be more pleased with the outcome. Ordering was simple, and you shipped quickly. Would 100% recommend your product to anyone who wants to enhance the look of a room.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great replacement ceiling tiles Fairly easy to install. Looks much better than the old tiles we replaced. Still need to install the edging.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy and Beautiful I bought Stratford for border tiles to go with Westminster. They go perfectly together and the project turned out great. The old ceiling was grid-centered with the cheapest 2 x 4 acoustic tiles and it did nothing for the room. To give you an idea of how easy this really is, I'm a 5' 4" retired woman and I took down the old ceiling, re-did the grid for a tile-centered ceiling with the 2x2 Westminster/Stratford tiles. I painted the grid to complement the caramel wood finish on the tiles, and installed four LED recessed lights. I had no problems cutting these tiles to work with the lights and the smoke detector. I did the entire project on my own. My new ceiling is gorgeous! I plan to remove the ceiling in my family room next and will be using Stratford for that entire project.
