    Product Description

    Quick Facts

    • Custom Made on demand
    • Custom Stains Available
    • High Quality 5 Layer Plywood Backing
    • 2x2 or 2x4 Sizes
    • Custom Sizing Available

    Floors are not the only part of a room that can be layered in wood. These veneer tiles can provide the appeal of wood decor to your ceiling. Each tile is custom-made in cut, fit, and stain for use in a standard grid system (these tiles can not be used as flooring). Letís talk ceilings!

    Select your wood species from the most popular choices in wood furnishings and improve it even further with several stain options of your choosing. Use it in a 15/16Ē drop-in grid system of either 2x2 or 2x4 sizes. It is so easy to install, they will just set into place.

    Custom Product
    These tiles are being constructed when they are ordered, so we are not constricted to just the two standard tile sizes. If there is a custom size that is required, than just let us know and we can produce a quote.

    Custom Order Refund Policy
    The return policy for our custom ordered ceiling tiles is different than on most of our products. These tiles are manufactured to your specific order rather than stocked. For returns and partial refunds on our custom made tiles, you are responsible for and a deduction will be taken for the original shipping costs to get the tiles to you, the cost of return shipping, and a 50% restocking fee (since we will have no idea if we can later sell your specific tiles to another customer)...so please be certain of your order to avoid any problems. We make them specifically for you, so keep in mind that if you order them...you buy them!

    WARRANTY

    3 Year Limited Warranty
    You're making a beautiful upgrade to your ceiling and we're here to help protect that investment. We guarantee that these wood ceiling tiles will be free from manufacturing defects for a period of 3 years from the original date of purchase.

    Warranty Conditions and Limitations
    This warranty covers material defects in the ceiling tile when used in a standard ceiling application. It does not cover labor, consequential or incidental damages. Please note that painting the ceiling tile will void the warranty and may change some of its properties like its fire rating.

    We're Ready to Help

Just give us a call and we will work with you to identify the problem and, in case of defect, supply you with replacement tiles.

    RETURNS

    Return Policy

As always, please feel free to call us with any questions; we are happy to assist you!

    How To Install Drop In 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 new tiles by pushing your existing tiles up out of place and turning 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 Red Oak Veneer Tiles's thin construction, regular fiberglass insulation is too heavy be laid on top. If your space requires insulation above the tiles you have a few options:

    • Use SoniGuard insulation: the only insulation that can safely sit directly on top of the Red Oak Veneer Tiles 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/Tape)
    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
    The Red Oak Veneer Tiles ceiling tile is very easy to cut with regular household scissors. 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, you must choose lights that 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.

    High Temperature Areas
    The Red Oak Veneer Tiles 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.

    Decorative Grid Strips / Grid Tape (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 or tape every 6 inches or so. For grid tape, drag the dab along the length to spread it out somewhat. The self-adhesive backing on the strips/tape 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 or tape to adhere to the ceiling.

    Approximately 1 tube of adhesive is needed per 5 packs of strips or 5 rolls of tape. 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).

    Grid 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.

    Grid Tape
    Start in a corner and work one direction. Apply small dabs of adhesive every 6 inches and drag along the length to spread out somewhat. Trim the tape to fit when you reach the end of a run. Finish off by covering the remaining cross T's (shorter grid sections). Trim the tape to fit the space exactly (do not overlap).

    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.

    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.

    Looks Great

    I love the new wood ceiling tiles. They are perfect in my room since I'm trying to have a rustic cabin feel decor. My only comment would be to have something that could be stained to go over the metal drop ceiling form. We did our best to match the tiles but it would have been better to have a product made out of the same material we could have stained so it would totally match the ceiling. Other than that I am perfectly satisfied with your product and your sales team. You followed up with me from the time I placed the order to the time the product was delivered. Thank you for a great product and great service.
