Product Overview

Stratford Ceiling Tiles are cost-effective, easy-to-use, and by far our best-selling style. 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, 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 tiles 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 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.

Will these tiles hold a LED recessed Light

Asked by: thebigj
The International Building Code requires that all lights, HVAC grilles, speakers, etc must be supported by the ceiling grid or the structure above. Per code, ceiling tiles should not be the sole support for lights. Please give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654 so we can share some specific information regarding LED light brackets that will satisfy the building code and share a tip to make the light bracket work well with the unique shape of the Stratford ceiling tile. We're here Monday - Friday from 7:00 am - 4:30 pm PST.

How many pieces in 1 box? do u ship to asia?

Asked by: vick
Ceilume sells ceiling tiles by the tile, not the case, so you can order in any quanity for your project. We do not handle international shipping. You would need to make arrangements with a freight forwarder to handle all import documents, taxes/tarrifs, and transportation.

The Stratford and Oxford ceiling tiles look identical except for thickness? Is this correct? If so, can they be used in the same area? For example: Oxford on tiles with lights, Stratford on tiles with nothing attached.

Asked by: Kyle
Once installed, the Stratford and Oxford tiles are nearly identical. While you could mix and match them in a ceiling, it's important to note that the International Building Code requires that all lights, speakers, life safety devices, etc are to be supported by the ceiling grid or structure above. Nothing should be supported by the ceiling tiles. If you have any other questions, please give Ceilume a call at 800-557-0654.

Is it good for low ceiling (in the basement)? How much space the tiles require for installation (what's the height of the tiles included the rails) ? Thank you!

Asked by: anna
Ceilume's Stratford tiles are made from a thin rigid vinyl that allows them to flex for installation in tight spaces and yet be durable enough to last for years and years in your ceiling. The Stratford has a profile that is 1/2" tall and you'll need about 2" between the top of your ceiling grid and the underside of the floor joists above to fit the tiles into the grid. Most commercially available ceiling grids are 1-1/2" to 1-3/4" tall so your finished ceiling would be about 4" below the bottom of the floor joists. Please call Ceilume at 800-557-0654 with any questions or to request a free full-sized sample.

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 Complete new look to The Cave After 20+ years and retirement we finally decided to redo the gameroom as my cave, so I wanted to redo the ceiling to provide an updated and new look to the old drop-in ceiling. After looking around I found the Ceilume web site and what a surprise I was in store for. I purchased over 60 of the 2x4 tile.The Stratford panels were a breeze to install, I entire ceiling took less time to install then we expected. I especially liked the ease of cutting and there was almost no cleanup needed. Please view the photos.

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.
