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" - 1" T-Bar Ceiling Systems. Most of the thermoform ceiling tiles come in two sizes, 2'x2' and 2'x4'.

Not recommended for direct mount installation

FYI - If you have a 2x4 grid ceiling, but 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.

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

  • 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 great. Easy to install.

I've installed 'regular' ceiling tiles before and these are a breeze on comparison. Very easy to trim to shape and equally easy to put into place as you can bend them when you need to and they snap back into shape. The ceiling looks great.

Looks great!

We are very pleased with the new tile. Installation was fast and easy. The old tile fit perfectly in the new tile. Larry, thank you for taking the time to share you experience! We are so glad that your project turned out looking great. The Stratford tile is definitely unique, being super installer-friendly. We don't recommend putting the weight of old tiles on top, due to the risk of bowing/bending the Stratford's 3-dimensional design, but it sounds like you were able to make it work. If you have any questions along the way, don't hesitate to reach out; anyone here would be happy to help. Thanks again for your review, and for including us in your project!

Look great and easy to install.

Installed these under the old tiles and it worked great. They look beautiful. The customer service was the best part! Trini, thank you for taking the time to share your experience. We're so glad that you love the look, and we are happy to have assisted along the way. While we do not recommend putting old tiles right on top of the Stratford, due to its thin construction, some customers have had great success with that, and been able to retain the pre-existing insulation properties. Oftentimes, we recommend that to use old tiles, simply lift them up and turn slightly so the corners of the old tile rest on the metal of the grid itself and not the Stratford tile (there is a risk of deforming the Stratford with weight). Thanks again for your review, and for including us in your project!

like a new salon

We had a salon with big problems. Could not shut it down because the stylists depend on it for work. Sagging tiles, broken tiles, water stained tiles. It was horrible. What made it worse is when you get your hair cut you look right into it. We took 3 day working in the evening to replace it with the stratford vinyl tiles and using the serenity tiles for the places that had narrow pieces. It looks like a new salon.

Fabulous update!

These give my old kitchen a modern look, allow great light with new LED ceiling lights and taping the frame to match provides the right finishing touch. It's such a simple way to make an enormous improvement! Thank you!

Very cheaply made

I wouldn't purchase them again.Very poor quality. Hi Michelle, thank you for taking the time to share your experience! We are very sorry that you found these to be of low quality. While the Stratford tiles are indeed very thin, they should sit nicely in the grid for many years once installed as long as no weight is on them. They are created thinner than other tiles to reduce cost and environmental impact, but we are happy to discuss alternatives or different options for you. I left a message to assist, so please just reach out when you have a few minutes. You are well within our 90-day return window, and it's important to us that you have a ceiling you love, so let us know how we can help. Thank you again for your review, and for including us in your project!

So many compliments

We completed our ceiling a few weeks ago and already have gotten so many compliments. People can't believe it when I take one down and they see it is vinyl and can be cut with regular scissors. It completely changed the look and feel of our lower level. Shipping is super fast too.

Looks expensive!

Everyone thinks I spent a fortune on my dropped ceiling and can't believe it when I hand them a tile to see up close. I really like this product a lot. This is my 4th order.
