These thermoform tiles are made from UV Stabilized .030" thick vinyl plastic. They are designed to provide all the functionality of conventional drop ceiling tiles at a fraction of the weight. The sturdy construction makes them a breeze to install, easy to clean, stain resistant, water resistant, dust free, and eco friendly! Installation is fast and couldn't be any easier.

Designed to fit all standard 15/16" - 1" T-Bar and 9/16" T-Bar Ceiling Systems.

Most of the thermoform ceiling tiles come in two sizes, 2'x2' and 2'x4'. If you have a 2x4 grid ceiling, but prefer the look of 2x2 ceiling tiles, simply insert a 2' center T bar available online or at most local hardware's easy!

The Diamond Plate tile will give your space a stylish industrial look, with very few tools required. It can be used in a grid or directly mounted to your ceiling. At .03" thick, it is twice as thick as many of our other grid tiles. Being that it is Class A Fire rated, it is an excellent choice for most businesses and homes. We are also proud to say that it is made in the USA.

Things to Consider:
If you are planning to directly mount these on your ceiling, the Grid Strips are a must have accessory for covering the seams between each tile.

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

The thickness of the Diamond Plate makes it capable of handling a bit of weight. If you'd like to keep your existing tile in the grid for acoustical/sound barrier purposes, you are able to do so without the risk of sagging.
It is more than likely that your room has partial tiles on the perimeter. Not to worry- The Diamond Plate lays nice and flat in the grid when cut to any size. Since the projection of the design is only .13", there is no unsightly gap that will show.

If your grid is already white and in good condition, it should match the white Diamond Plate tile very well. If you are going with a colored option, we highly recommend that you consider the Grid Tape or Grid Strips since they are color coordinated with the ProLite collection. If you would prefer to avoid the extra expense, you can of course paint your grid as well.

Greenguard Gold Certification offers strict certification criteria that considers safety factors to account for sensitive individuals (such as children and the elderly), and ensures that a product is acceptable for use in environments such as schools and healthcare facilities. It is referenced by both The Collaborative for High Performance Schools (CHPS) and the Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design (LEED) Building Rating System. Click here for more information.

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.

...more expensive per square foot than beautiful, rectified, slate-look porcelain tile I installed on one of the floors in the house. Still scratching my head as to why these panels are so costly...0.03" in thickness...can be stamped out and cut to dimension in five seconds using about 0.05 cents of plastic. One important point that no one ever mentioned, and I will do here to help those curious - yes, the tiles are quite thin and flexible, but when placed within the 2x2 suspended grid, do, in fact, lie flat, and do not bow in the center. The panels are very light, however, so if these (or other very light-weight styles) are used in a smaller room with a door, when the door is opened or closed abruptly, the tiles will deflect within the grid transiently from the pressure differential generated from air movement during the opening/closing of the door. Overall, happy with the look. Only time will tell how well these ultra-thin tiles hold-up.

Nice finish to my Caddy Shack.

Really makes the room pop. Friends are surprised when they finally look up. I used the black grid system and it goes so well with the pewter tiles. I bet the black grid would look good with the silver too. Easy to cut to size. A touch thin, but no sagging has been seen. A bit pricey, but I can't argue with the results. Product arrived quickly and on time.

Awesome product!

Converted unfinished basement into a home gym and glued tiles to drywall ceiling for a really cool, industrial look.
