Recommended Border Tile

Designer Border Ceiling Tile - Antique Bronze

We recommend using Designer Border Ceiling Tile - Antique Bronze as a border tile for Cathedral Ceiling Tile - Bronze .

For tiles that either project down into the room or are coffered (recess up into the ceiling), the finished look is often better when using a border tile for partial tiles on the room's perimeter.

Perfect for both commercial and residential applications, these uDecor Tiles are constructed from .03" vinyl. Their lightweight and durable material make these tiles easy to install. uDecor tiles are also waterproof, which means they are washable and will not stain from mildew or humidity. These tiles are a perfect choice for anyone who wants to add that designer touch at an amazing price.

These are designed to fit standard 15/16" - 1" T-bar Ceiling Systems. If you have a 2x4 drop grid, use our easy to install grid dividers easily convert your system to fit these 2x2 tiles.

Lightweight
Our uDecor tiles are incredibly lightweight, which means there is less strain and stress during the installation process. Also, you can easily move them if you ever have to access the backside of the grid.

Easy to Install
These tiles are flexible which makes installation a breeze and ideal for areas with minimal clearance, unlike traditional mineral fiber tiles that easily break, crumble, or chip. Slide them into the suspension system alone or beneath an existing tile. You can also install these directly to your ceiling using the glue up method, just grab construction adhesive such as Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive. Cutting ceiling tiles has never been easier - scissors or tin snips get the job done best.

Waterproof
Say goodbye to those nasty water stains and bowed ceiling tiles from water damage. uDecor tiles are virtually impervious to water and mildew, giving you peace of mind that your tiles will look great for many years to come.

Durable
Our uDecor tiles are durable. Made out of high-quality pvc, these are sure to stand the test of time.

Easy to Clean
With water and a quick wipe down, your tiles will maintain their new and fresh look. This is another benefit to PVC tiles compared to porous mineral fiber tiles. Enjoy the appeal of clean, beautiful, long-lasting tiles.

Highlights:
The Cathedral in Bronze is a beautiful vinyl ceiling tile with a metallic bronze finish. It is suited for both Direct Mount or Grid application. The 12 inch pattern makes it ideal for both small and large spaces.

Things to Consider:
If installing in a ceiling grid, make your grid look as elegant as your tiles by painting your grid. If you are planning to direct mount these to your ceiling, you will love the way that they overlap. No seams to conceal, so there is no need to buy grid strips.

For direct mount applications, save a trip to the store by purchasing our Red Devil brand Direct Mount Adhesive. If you would prefer to pick up something locally, PL Premium Advanced (Loctite brand) works great.

More often than not, ceiling layouts require partial tiles around the perimeter. Since the Cathedral style has a very minimal projection, many of our customers do not find the need for a border tile and choose to cut the Cathedral tile for those areas.

Waterproof
Materials used in the construction of the tile(s) are 100% waterproof.

Class A Fire Rated
Tiles have been tested in accordance with ASTM 84e and scored a Class A rating for flame spread and smoke generation.

How To Install Cathedral Ceiling Tiles

Tools Needed for Installation

  • Tape Measure
  • Pencil
  • Straight edge (optional)
  • Scissors or Aviation (Tin) Snips
  • Gloves
  • Eye Protection

Your Old Tiles
Have old tiles still in good condition? Reuse them to add heat and sound insulation as well as support regular insulation above your tiles!

  • If your new tile design is flat on the back with no lip around the perimeter, slide it into place below your existing tile, leaving the existing tile in place.
  • Or push your existing tiles up out of place and turn them slightly to rest on top of the grid system. NOTE: this is likely not compliant with commercial building codes, so verify if this is an option.

Insulation Above ProLite Series Tiles
Due to the Cathedral's thin construction, regular fiberglass insulation is too heavy be laid on top. If insulation above your ceiling tiles is important, you have a few options:

  • Use SoniGuard insulation: the only insulation that can safely sit directly on top of the Cathedral tile.
  • Support on your old tiles (see above).
  • Place 1x1 or 1x2 wood furring strips across the top of the grid to use as support for insulation.
  • Secure the insulation to the "real ceiling" of your space, leaving the tops of the tiles clear of any need to support weight.

Clean Grid (If Using Grid Strips)
Use rubbing alcohol or 409 to remove dirt and oils from your grid. This is easier to do before putting up your new tiles.

Installing - Start with Full Tiles
Place all of the full sized tiles first so you can:

  • Verify that your grid is properly aligned/spaced prior to cutting partial tiles.
  • Set aside any tiles with damaged corners to use for border/partial tiles. We ALWAYS gladly replace any tiles damaged in shipping, but if you need to cut tiles for border tiles, you'll end up cutting off 2 corners anyways. This can save you time, save the environment, and help you complete your project perfectly without waiting for replacements.

Cutting Border / Partial Tiles
Grid ceilings typically need partial tiles or 'border tiles' along the perimeter, where grid openings are rarely full-sized. Our Cathedral ceiling tile is very easy to cut with regular household scissors, but we recommend using tiles with a flat face for these border spaces, so they sit flat on all edges. Use a tape measure or straightedge to measure the size your tiles need to be. Transfer those measurements to the back side of the tile with a pencil or grease pencil, mark a straight line, and cut!

Recessed / Can Lights (optional)
Choose a tile design that has a large enough flat area for the light bezel to lay flush once installed. As with standard mineral fiber tiles, traditional can lights must have grid mounting brackets so that the weight of the light is supported by the grid system and not the tile.

Place your light fixture and tile in the grid system. Adjust the light to its final position and mark this on the backside of your tile. Use the template to mark the hole in the tile (usually the light bezel itself will be close if no template is available). Cut the opening with scissors or a razor blade.

Caution
Unshielded fixtures, especially those using halogen lighting, present a risk of fire or melting the tiles.

Clip-In 'Puck' LED Lights (optional)
In testing of similar tiles with a few of the newer, clip-in 'puck' style of LED light, they were able to bear the weight without deflecting or deforming. Each type of light, its driver, and installation project is different, so we cannot guarantee results and this does void the Cathedral Ceiling Tile warranty. Be sure to test a few tiles first before proceeding with installation like this.

We strongly advise you to review your local building codes and light installation instructions before installing the lights. You may be required to attach the light and/or driver to the structure of the building. We are not responsible for any issues that may arise when mounting lights or other objects directly to the ceiling tile.

High Temperature Areas
The Cathedral tile is designed to operate in temperatures up to 120F. Higher temperatures can happen around heat registers, above stoves and ovens, around high temperature lighting, and in environments that intentionally have higher temperatures, like heat spas and Hot Yoga/Bikram studios. Contact us if your space may be subjected to any of these conditions.

Installing Decorative Grid Strips (optional)
Make sure your grid system is clean, using rubbing alcohol or 409 to remove dirt and oils.

For best results, make sure the temperature in the room is 60-80F and low humidity.

Glue
Apply small dabs of direct mount adhesive (a.k.a. glue) along the back of the strips. The self-adhesive backing IS NOT a permanent adhesive, it is meant to hold long enough for the glue to cure. Failure to use glue may result in the failure of the strips to adhere to the ceiling.

Approximately 1 tube of adhesive is needed per 5 packs of strips. We provide Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive free with purchase or you can use Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Adhesive (available locally in most big box stores).

Strips should be butted up to one another. Do not overlap! Always start at the same end with each consecutive strip. Always dry-fit first, before peeling off the backing, to see if any trimming is needed.

Take your first strip. The dot at the end should be directly over the intersection of 4 tiles. Once you have the strip lined up, peel the backing from the self adhesive and apply small dabs of adhesive to the back of the strip (see above). Run all the strips one direction first.

Finish by installing the strips that run perpendicular to the tiles. Each strip will need to be trimmed, so keep a pair of scissors or snips in your pocket and cut off the dotted end.


How to Install Glue-Up Ceiling Tiles

Adhesives -vs- Staples
Adhesive is recommended when installing our vinyl tiles, because the tiles can crack when using staples. We recommend Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive.

Tools Needed

  • Tape measure
  • Pencil
  • Chalk line (recommended)
  • Straight edge
  • Scissors or Aviation (Tin) Snips
  • Adhesive (about 1 tube for every 8 tiles)
  • Paper towels and water for clean-up
  • Decorative Strips (if not overlapping tiles)
  • Eye protection

Surface Types and Methods of Installation

  • Sheetrock, Drywall, Plaster, Cement, Wood Paneling, Plywood
    Install the tiles directly to the ceiling using an adhesive that is compatible with both the ceiling and the ceiling tile.
  • Wood Furring Strips
    Furring strips are a great solution for rough ceilings that would require a lot of work to fix. Level with shims as you install them to give a flat mounting surface. Space out the furring strips according to your tile spacing determined below. If installing 2x4 tiles, we recommend doing a 2x2 pattern so the middle of the tile can also be adhered.
  • Popcorn / Stucco / Cottage Cheese Ceilings
    Ceiling tiles should never be applied directly to popcorn ceilings. Either remove the ceiling texture, add a new layer of drywall or 1/4" hardiebacker over the surface, or install furring strips. NOTE: If removing texture installed before the mid-1980's, test beforehand for asbestos, which may require removal by a licensed contractor.

Determine Tile Spacing
Using Grid Strips? (Required for ProLite, optional for Legacy and Designer)
Spacing exactly 24"x24" or 24"x48" is recommended, as it leaves a small gap that the grid strip will cover (test the spacing with two tiles and a grid strip).

Overlapping - No Grid Strips (required for Manchester Ceiling Tile, optional for Legacy and Designer Series)
Place a few tiles on the floor and determine your preferred overlap. Measure the tile spacing in this position. The grid you draw will be smaller than your tile due to the overlap (e.g. if your tile is 23 3/4" and you have a 1/2" overlap, you will draw your grid at 23 1/4").

Note: Everywhere 4 adjacent tiles overlap, the tile thickness compounds. Often, the ceiling height makes this unnoticeable. However, if desired, you can trim 2 or 3 tiles to minimize the thickness.

Planning Your Layout
Use grid paper and map out your ceiling. Indicate the position of lights, vents, and any other fixtures or obstructions to help determine your layout.

Note: If the ceiling tile you have chosen has a large amount of relief, consider using a flatter border tile in the spaces where there are lights, vents or other obstructions.

Consider the main, most visible area of your space as well as the longest runs of tiles. These are usually the lines you want square to your starting wall (used as the base for your lines). Most rooms are not square and many times tile layout is a compromise of room shape and border tile size needs.

Using the tile spacing you determined above, draw the tile grid in your layout. Many people prefer equal width border tiles on opposing walls, and a larger border is often preferred over a small one.

Mark Grid On Ceiling
Use a chalk line (or pencil) to put your layout onto the ceiling to keep everything straight. Be precise; if you are off by only 1/8" on each tile, after 8 tiles you will be off a whole inch! Space your chalk lines according to your determined spacing.

Before You Begin
Your surface needs to be smooth, clean, and dry. Test your adhesive and tile combination in a small area before committing to doing the whole ceiling.

Installing the First Tile
Make sure all surfaces are clean, as well as your hands. Any oils on the ceiling, tiles, or your hands can affect the adhesive performance. Latex gloves are a great option, keeping oils off the tiles and keeping your hands clean of adhesive.

If using grid strips, each tile will be installed at the center of its "grid" box, not touching any of the lines. For overlapping installations without grid strips, it is easiest to align two edges of the tile to the drawn grid lines (e.g. the bottom and right edges if you are working from top to bottom and left to right) so that you don't cover any lines you'll need for a subsequent tile.

Apply a bead of adhesive all the way around the perimeter of the backside of the tile. Make the bead 1/8" to 3/16" in size. If the tile center lays flat on the ceiling, add a 4" "X" to the center section with adhesive. If the tile has a design where only a few areas touch the ceiling, place dabs of adhesive on those sections. Keep a damp towel handy to clean up any adhesive that may seep out.

Gently place the tile close to its final location next to your chalk lines. Lightly press the tile to the ceiling as you slide it into position. This lets the adhesive spread out and smear a bit. Once you are satisfied that the tile is in place, firmly press it to the ceiling, rubbing out any bumps in the adhesive.

Second Tile - With Overlap
Use the same gluing technique as the first tile. Place the second tile next to your first one, aligning to the same edges of the grid lines (e.g. bottom and right) as your first tile. It will overlap by your predetermined amount. Continue to place full sized tiles, remaining lined up on your grid lines.

Second Tile - Without Overlap
Use the same gluing technique as the first tile. Center the second tile in its respective "grid" space next to the first. The edges of each tile should NOT be touching. Dry fit the Grid Strip to confirm you are placing the tiles with the correct spacing.

Border Tiles
Measure the open space from the installed tile to the wall, adding overlap if not using grid strips. Make sure to take measurements at each end of the space, as the measurements are often different due to inconsistencies in construction. Make sure the tile is facing the correct direction. Transfer your measurements to your border tile and cut it.

Decorative Strips
For best results, make sure the temperature in the room is 60-80F and low humidity.

Glue
Apply small dabs of direct mount adhesive (a.k.a. glue) every 8 inches (one at each end and two spaced in the middle). The self-adhesive backing on the strip IS NOT a permanent adhesive, it is meant to hold long enough for the glue to cure. Failure to use glue may result in the failure of the strips to adhere to the ceiling.

Approximately 1 tube of adhesive is needed per 5 packs of strips. We provide Red Devil General Purpose Construction Adhesive free with purchase or you can use Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Adhesive (available locally in most big box stores).

Strips should be butted up to one another. Do not overlap! Always start at the same end with each consecutive strip. Always dry-fit first, before peeling off the backing, to see if any trimming is needed.

Take your first strip. The dot at the end should be directly over the intersection of 4 tiles. Once you have the strip lined up, peel the backing from the self adhesive and apply adhesive to the back of the strip (see above). Run all the strips one direction first.

Adds to the character of our 1902 home

We have installed , ourselves, ~200 + ceiling tiles and it looks great. We are having to add a strip to cover the joint seams as we are doing direct glue method, so far so good. Shipping and delivery times have been very good and the product is as advertised, including the reminder each piece is not exactly the dimension noted. Overall, very pleased!

Great product. Great team.

These tiles could not be easier to install and they got them to me ridiculously quick. We put them into a 100 yr old building and folks always believe they are the original tin. Could not be happier w the product or the company.

Office installation

These ceiling tiles are an excellent alternative to real punched or molded tin tiles. Much cheaper in cost when trying to add an elegant touch to a renovation. They look great, installation was - not going to say easy....just installing the tiles - yes, that part was actually easy, cutting them, not so much. We placed a basic grid on the ceiling to start off square. However we have a ceiling fan in center of the room, we felt the first tile needed to be centered under the ceiling fan. Otherwise the entire pattern would seem out of balance. Recommended method of cutting tiles was a pair of scissors. Would not recommend using them since you have a natural tendency to cut at slight angle depending on which hand is dominant, pls with a2 ft square tile, there is a lot of room to wander off straight line. We had better straight lines using box cutter or straight razor utility knife, with a square to guide your cut. The pvc is tough, thin, but tough. Takes some effort to cut, and if you slip without using a square you will ruin a tile. Now the disappointing part, the edges of the tiles are white - which stands out with copper colored tiles. Tiles are thin, but you'd be amazed at how bad the white edges stood out. We used a brown marker to touch up the edges after installation to blend in color. Our office looks amazing. We are 1 tile short, ordering that tomorrow. Since we centered the tiles with the ceiling fan, we ended up having to cut all 4 sides or the room, which lead to is being 1 short. Turned out square - which I was excited, each wall measurement was within 1/8 inch down the wall. I built in bookshelves and used crown moulding so I drove the room square with my carpenter skills. The room/walls/ceiling were not square, but when I installed the bookshelves on 3 walls, I made it square. Overall extremely satisfied with these tiles, I may post a picture once I get finished. We are expecting to do master bedroom in gray/pewter, waiting for a tile to try in the room before purchasing enough to do the room.

Looks Gr8 - easy install

We've had the real metal ceilings before but these are so easy to install - scissors instead of tin snips - and the look is the same. Bought 2 profiles - one for the lower ceilings and the heavier profile for the 18' high ceiling. Had enough left over to make giant medallions in the bedrooms. Everyone who sees it cannot believe it's plastic! Oh, and the shipping was terrific - we got everything super quick!
