Product Description

Quick Facts

  • Lasts a lifetime
  • Waterproof
  • Clean with soap and water
  • Mold and mildew resistant.
  • Stain resistant
  • Flexible yet strong
  • Lightweight and easy to install

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 Stratford 2x2 grid tile is our most popular drop ceiling tile. Its classic simplicity makes it a great option for any type of space. Our customers are continually amazed at its ability to transform the look of their room. Being that it is FDA compliant, it is an excellent choice for restaurants. We are also proud to say that it is made in the USA.

Things to Consider:
Since the Stratford tile is not flat on the back, it is not suitable for use as a direct mount tile.

While only .013" thick, the embossed design gives it the rigidity and structure needed to support itself in the grid without sagging. To avoid the risk of sagging, 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 Stratford.

It is more than likely that your room has partial tiles around the perimeter. Not to worry- The Stratford tile lays nice and flat in the grid when cut to any size. Since the recession of the design is only .5", the gap is unnoticeable for most applications. View product images and customer installation photos for examples.

If your grid is already white and in good condition, it should match the white Stratford 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.

UL Listing/Certification
Certain ProLite ceiling tiles are 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. 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.

This warranty covers material defects in the ceiling tile when used in a standard ceiling application where temperatures do not exceed 120F. It does not cover labor, consequential or incidental damages. This warranty is not transferable and applies to the original purchaser only. Please note that painting the ceiling tile will void the warranty and may change some of its properties like its fire rating.

  • 90 day return window with no restocking fees
  • Products must be unused/new and in their original boxes
  • Customer is responsible for return shipping cost (we are happy to help arrange shipping)

Looks wonderful!

The product was very easy to install. It transformed our basement into a finished space in the blink of an eye!! Shipping was quick and the Customer Service people couldn't have been more helpful. Thank you so much.

What a stunning outcome!

Couldn't possibly be any happier with this product! So very very easy to work with, so very very user friendly. The only comment I can add about customer service is that I was notified immediately when the order was received and further notifications when it was sent out. Packaging was very good, and no issues with delivery. I'm certain if I needed help customer service would have been equally helpful in that regard, but as I said installation could not have been any easier or more self-explanatory. Thank you very very much for your product and I look forward to placing orders in the future, as need be.

Awesome looking tile!

I was on the fence about buying these tile versus the expensive metal ones and I'm glad I bought these. You can't tell the difference and not a single person has noticed they are not metal. The ceilings are the first thing everyone notices.

Amazing upgrade

These were the perfect fit to upgrade our main room in the office. There are skylights above so the translucent ones still keep everything bright. When I got them, I was a little concerned that they seemed a little flimsy, but I realized by design that's part of what makes them easy to install and from below you wouldn't know the difference. Great buy for an easy and inexpensive upgrade to the office.

Customer loves it!

Used these on a basement renovation project. First time we have used them. My installers were super happy about the ease of installation and the customer was overwhelmed by how gorgeous their ceiling looks. Couldn't be happier - these tiles are my new go to for estimates involving drop ceilings.

You would never know these tiles are thin gauge plastic!

These tiles went up so easily and look much more substantial than they are. Very easy to trim and install. Great price and value.

Transforms the room!

These ceiling tiles are easy to install - cut them with scissors - and look great. I even added the thin round LED lights, and the panels support them without a problem. Wonderful product!

Hi Pamela, thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We are so glad you love the look. And yes, they are super easy to cut. When installing lights, we recommend bracing or brackets to put the weight on the grid (instead of the tile), but it sounds like you were able to make it work without that. If you ever have questions, don't hesitate to reach out; anyone here would love to help. Thanks again for your review, and for including us in your project!
