Product Overview

Our Stratford Translucent Ceiling Panels will add a soft, diffused lighting to your space, whether you want localized effects or a fully illuminated ceiling.

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 translucent white material adds a soft, diffused lighting effect, and hides most of what lays above the ceiling. 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

I’m looking at going over a botched plywood thing. It seems they’re all cracking and I wanted to see if it’s what this product is made out of and if it’s easy just glue directly up onto the substrate 

Asked by: Randal
Ceilume's Stratford ceiling tiles can only be installed in a 1" or 15/16" suspended ceiling grid - they can not be glued to a ceiling. Ceilume has 18 different tile styles that can be glued to a ceiling. You can view them by clicking this link: https://www.ceilume.com/products/glue-up/2x2/white-ceiling-tiles/ Note: the substrate you're gluing the tiles to must be relatively sound, free from large cracks or loose/flaking material. Please give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654 if you'd like to see a free full-sized sample. We're here Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 4:30 pm PST.

I currently have a 2x4 grid ceiling in my basement the existing tiles have sagged in the middle due to collecting moisture. builders grade i guess. will i have the same issue with your 2x4 stratford ceiling panels or should i consider 2x2.

Asked by: paguy
Ceilume's Stratford 2x4 ceiling panels are made from a thin rigid vinyl (about the thickness of a business card) that is impervious to moisture. While the tiles are surprisingly light and are flexible when being installed, their durable vinyl construction combined with the fact that they won't absorb humidity means that your Stratford ceiling panels will look great for years to come. You can keep your 2x4 ceiling layout and not worry sagging tiles!

if we use this tile with sound guard instead is it better we are planning to lay on top of the grid tiles 1lb Vinyl and rockwool insulation to stop sound to go to the above floor witch has already 2 layers of dry wall with green compound glue in between

Asked by: mauro
Ceilume only recommends using Soniguard Drop Ceiling Insulation for additional acoustic or thermal insulation for the Stratford (and all other Feather-Light) ceiling tiles. Heavier insulations can cause the tiles to bow downward or deform.

What type of lighting fixture do I have to use?

Asked by: Ellen
Ceilume's Stratford ceiling tiles work well with any standard recessed can light or pendant light. The International Building Code requires that all lights, HVAC grilles, speakers, fire/smoke alarms, etc must be supported by the ceiling grid or the structure above - the Ceiling tiles should not be used to support any of those items. Home Depot has a wide range of light support brackets to make your project simple and safe. If you're planning to install LED "puck lights", please contact Ceilume at 800-557-0654 to discuss the additional step required for these lights. We're here Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 4:30 pm PST and look forward to speaking with you.

Is this the best looking border to use with the Aristocrat tiles

Asked by: greg
As they say, "Beauty is in the eye of the beholder". There are only 3 Feather-Light border tiles available in the 2x4 size: Stratford, Southland, and Polyline. Stratford works great with the Aristocrat but it does give the appearance of 2 separate 2x2 tiles. We're fans of the Southland tile as a border to the Aristocrat; the linear pattern of the Southland is a nice contrast to the concentric rectangles of the Aristocrat. Feel free to give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654 to request a few samples and see which border style you like best. We're here Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 4:30 pm PST.

Hello, We have many irregular spaces in our ceiling grid. Would you recommend pairing the Stratford with the Serenity for borders or cutting the Stratford to fit the irregular spaces? We are worried that the interrupted pattern will not look right.

Asked by: Katie
The Stratford ceiling tile is Ceilume's best selling ceiling tiles in large part because it works so well as a border tile (see photo below). If you'd like to see free full-sized samples of both the Stratford and the Serenity so you can test them in your ceiling grid, please give us a call at 800-557-0654. We're here Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 4:30 pm PST.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Easy install Ceilume was wonderful through the whole process. These tiles totally transformed our basement living area! It was so easy to install that my mother-in-law wanted to try and couldn’t stop helping after that. Used scissors to make any adjustments to the tiles. Yes! You heard me right. No power tools needed for the install. Anymore drop down ceilings in our next home will definitely be getting ceilume tiles!

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Its a New Basement FRoom We could not be happier with our decision to purchase the Stratford ceiling panels from Ceilume. The family room in the basement looks amazing - actually looks bigger and warmer.

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.
