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!

I would like to install the Stratford in a lobby where there are bathrooms on the floor above, if a toilet floods the bathroom and water leaks on to these tiles will they damage or can they just be rinsed and dried off.

Asked by: Isaac
All of Ceilume's ceiling tiles are made from a rigid vinyl material that is impervious to moisture. If you should experience water leaks from above, the tiles can be cleaned and reinstalled multiple times with no damage to the tiles.

Do this need 2feet cross tee in the middle to hold them up

Asked by: Christopher
Ceilume's Stratford 2x4 ceiling tiles should be supported on all 4 sides by the suspended ceiling grid. The 2x4 Stratford's design is made to trick the eye into seeing 2 separate 2x2 tiles with a center divider, but that center divider is actually part of the ceiling tile! Give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654 to request a free, full-sized sample so you can see it in person and determine if it's the right tile for your installation.

I want to put these in my Pizza restaurant Kitchen. Is this the right product? I need something stain resistant, grease resistant if you will. A tile that will hold up for the next 10+ years The existing white tiles are yellowed and brown. Disgusting

Asked by: Nate Nate
Ceilume ceiling tiles are made from a durable vinyl that meet FDA and USDA requirements for installation in food prep and food service areas. The only thing you'll need to watch out for is heat; the Stratford carries this warning "Not recommended for installation where ceiling temperatures exceed 120°F" The ceiling directly above a pizza oven could experience temperatures of 120°F and above.

Hi, this panel Is glue up or just slip on the bottom of the old panel?

Asked by: Kennethv
The Stratford ceiling tile can only be installed in a standard 1" or 15/16" ceiling grid. It can not be applied to a ceiling with glue and it should not be installed underneath an old ceiling panel. For additional acoustic and thermal insulation, use Ceilume's Drop Ceiling Insulation. Please give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654 with any questions or to request samples.

Can recessed lights only be installed in the flat / middle sections or can they also be installed toward the outside ridged sections

Asked by: Mike M
While the recessed lighting looks best when centered in the tiles, we understand that there are times when this is not possible. You can place the lights anywhere within the tile as long as you're aware of the following conditions: 1) make sure your recessed light housing depth is adjusted to make up for penetrating through the "square within a square" pattern at the edge of the tile 2) that your trim ring sits flush with the flat portion of the tile. If you're using a hole saw to cut the hole for the recessed lighting, always run your drill in reverse so the teeth don't bind on the vinyl and make sure that the pilot bit penetrates the vinyl before the circular part of the saw contacts the tile. Those 2 steps will insure a clean cut.

Rated 5 out of 5 by from Great company to deal with and gorgeous product I purchased the tiles and installed them myself on an existing grid. I’m a 40 something year old woman and did the whole project with the help of my 12 year old daughter in about a day. It’s super easy to cut especially if you can trace the old tiles. The ceiling looks awesome - such an improvement over the dated old tiles. Also- my highest regards to the company. I had a shipping delay due to high shipping volume around Christmas. It was the fault of fed-ex not Ceilume. They were so helpful and even offered to ship out new tiles due to the delay. Very nice and helpful people. I highly recommend this product. Super easy, super gorgeous and super great company.

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 4 out of 5 by from Beautiful panels! My contractor, hubby and I all love the beauty of the Stratford ceiling panels. They brighten up my dark dingy basement and updates the ceiling. We installed these panels directly over existing fiber ceiling tiles for added sturdiness. ****I give 4 stars because of how thin and pliable the product is. If these were a few millimeters thicker I'd feel comfortable leaving them as stand alones, but due to it's flimsiness, these work best as covers to the old-school tiles which provide more stability.****

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 4 out of 5 by from Easy install, looks great I bought these to update a stained, ugly drop ceiling In our bedroom. Installation was very easy and quick. (I did color match some paint to the panels and painted the grid first). To make the panels a little sturdier, I took the old panels and flipped them upside down (over the years they had begun to sag). I then installed the new panels on top of the old. It added a little stability (these are pretty flimsy) and a sound barrier (I was too cheap to buy the sound panels). I initially thought it would squish and denr the new panels but I did it carefully and was able to remove any dents that occurred. Cutting them to fit the edges was no problem with a scissors. Keeping the old ones so I could cut them to the same size saved me time. Some folks mentioned problems with the panels when opening and closing doors. The added weight of the old panels on top has made this a non issue.

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.
