These thermoform tiles are made from UV Stabilized .013" thick vinyl plastic. They are designed to provide all the functionality of conventional drop ceiling tiles at a fraction of the weight. The feather-light 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" T-Bar Ceiling Systems. Will not fit in a 9/16" grid, please measure the visible width of your grid.

Not recommended for direct mount installation

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

5 Year ProShield Warranty
The ceiling tile manufacturer guarantees that your ceiling tiles will be free from manufacturing defects for a period of five years from the date of purchase. Limitations apply. See full warranty information below.

UL Listing/Certification
ProLite ceiling tiles bearing this mark are UL tested and approved drop-out ceiling panels that can be installed beneath fire sprinklers. When exposed to heat from a developing fire, drop-out ceiling panels soften, distort, and fall from the ceiling grid. Heat from the growing fire activates the sprinkler which, unimpeded by the panels, controls or extinguishes the fire.

The Orb grid mount tile is a fun pattern that is sure to liven up any room. It is best suited for larger areas, since the full design is revealed in a 4" x 4" section. 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:
The Orb tile is not suitable for use as a direct mount tile, since it is not flat on the back.

While only .013" thick, the embossed design gives it the rigidity and structure needed to support itself in the grid though very minor sagging may occur (we recommend purchasing a sample to see if you notice any). We discourage placing any weight directly on the tile, with the exception of our Soniguard insulation; it has been tested and approved for this purpose as an alternative to traditional insulation. If you would like to keep your existing acoustical tile in the grid for insulation or sound barrier purposes, we recommend that you place it above the framework so that it is not putting any weight on the Orb.

It is more than likely that your room has partial tiles on the perimeter. Not to worry- The Orb tile lays nice and flat in the grid when cut to any size. Since the recession of the design is only .32", there is no unsightly gap that will show. If your grid is already white and in good condition, it should match the white Orb 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.

blended ceiling

When the lights are off one can barely tell where they are, when on, they just look like bright light parts of a uniform ceiling. Huge improvement over the very obvious beady "standard" translucent panels usually seen over fluorescent fixtures. These are quite pricey but worth it in the long haul.

Looks Great, Easy Installation

Used in both the bathroom and kitchen. Easy to install - needed to cut pieces to fit into smaller grid spaces and only needed scissors and a ruler. Everyone comments on how great the tiles look over the old, boring clear plastic basic texture ones that used to be there. The translucent ones also diffuse the lighting so it's not just a harsh light in the center, but the whole room is lit.

Tiles look great, but shipping dept needs to do better.

I recently purchased i tiles for room I did. This shipment came in boxes 40 and the final 15 tiles were boxed separately. These final 15 tiles were boxed in such a way that the corners weren't protected and every one of them had damage. Fortunately I was able to use them as pieces so they weren't wasted although I would have preferred that they would have been on damaged when I received them.

Michael, thank you for taking the time to share your review! We're glad you love the look, and very sorry for the damage in transit. While damage is quite rare, we are happy to re-ship products immediately in cases like this. Thankfully you were able to use the tiles, but if you have any issues with future orders, please reach out to us right away. We stand behind our products and shipping, and we want to make sure that you get what you ordered. Thank you again for sharing your experience, and for including us in your project!

Tiles look fantastic

These tiles replaced some ancient acoustic tiles that once were white, but haven't been in years. Makes the sub-basement rooms look much more bright and attractive. The addition of the white grid tape makes the whole support system look new, as well.
