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!

Is it possible to get samples of the stratford? Right now our grid color is black and we are unsure what color panel would look the best. Trying to decide between white or stone

I'm installing on slats over joists, 2x2 spacing, are the edges square or have a profile ( curve) ?

Asked by: Stevo
Ceilume's Stratford ceiling tiles have square edges but chamfered corners which protect the tile during transit. The corner details are not visible when the tile is installed in the grid. As you can see from the image below, the Stratford tile sits flush in a ceiling grid; the tile doesn't project down below the face of the grid which means they can be cut for those areas at the perimeter of your room that might be less than a full tile. Please give us a call at 800-557-0654 with any questions.

Are these acoustic tiles?

Asked by: MikeM
Ceilume's Stratford ceiling tile, and all of the other Feather-Light ceiling tiles, have an NRC of .25 Adding the Soniguard Drop Ceiling Insulation to the Stratford brings the NRC up to .50 and if you really need to reduce the in-room noise, the Stratford NRC 85+ provides an NRC of .85 Give us a call at 800-557-0654 if you have any other questions or would like to discuss controlling noise in your installation.

Do the Stratford 2x2 tiles have a tegular edge?  Thank you.

Asked by: Kelley
The Stratford tile sits flush in the ceiling grid and does not project down below the plane of the grid. This makes it easy to cut and install the tiles in those areas at the perimeter of your room that are most likely less than a full tile.

Can these tiles support canless style lights?

Asked by: Craig
The International Building Code requires that all can lights, speakers, vents, etc must be supported by the ceiling grid or the structure above. You can install recessed can lights in Ceilume ceiling tile but must use can light housings that carry the weight of the light on the ceiling grid or joists above. Here is a link to a short video showing the installation process: https://www.youtube.com/embed/buunelCfJXY?rel=0&autoplay=1

Can these glue up tiles be used over popcorn ceilings?

Asked by: Dreamwalkerwarrior
Ceilume's Stratford Ceiling Panels can only be installed in a standard 1" or 15/16" ceiling grid; they are not suitable for a glue-up installation. Ceilume offers a wide range of glue-up ceiling tiles but does not recommend gluing any of them directly to a popcorn ceiling. The uneven nature of the popcorn finish makes adhesion difficult and typically results in uneven joints and a ceiling that is not smooth. You can view all of Ceilume's glue-up tiles here: https://www.ceilume.com/products/glue-up/white-ceiling-tiles/

If my ceiling has cracks can these tiles be glued on top without skimming the ceiling?

Asked by: Reygene
Ceilume's Stratford ceiling tiles can only be installed in a standard 1" or 15/16" suspended ceiling grid. They can not be glued directly to a drywall ceiling. You can view all of Ceilume's Glue Up tiles at the following link, but please keep in mind that you can cover minor ceiling cracks with a tile as long as there are not broken or falling pieces of plaster. https://www.ceilume.com/products/glue-up/white-ceiling-tiles/

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 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 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 Love our new ceiling! One thing I have never liked when we bought our home 15 years ago was the ugly, outdated drop ceiling in a room that was originally a screen porch but later enclosed with windows by a previous owner. These Stratford ceiling tiles have completely updated and upgraded the look of the room! I love our new ceiling! My husband said they were easier than expected to install. We kept the old tiles and installed these over them because we needed the insulation the old ones provided. We had an issue with our original shipment - all the tiles in one box were damaged. Customer service was incredible and they got it taken care of very quickly. Very happy with how this project turned out!

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!
