All of our products are manufactured from a T1 grade tin-plated steel. They are made from 25% recycled steel, with a 100% virgin coating. This is generally referred to as “bright tinplate.” The material thickness is 0.010”. All our panels are 24” x 24”, regardless of pattern or color and all moldings are sold in 4’ lengths. All of our finishes are powder-coated. Powder coating is an electrostatic process where polyester resin is baked onto the panels at 400 degrees Fahrenheit. Our artisan finishes are hand applied over a powder coated base color.
The Snap Lock™ panel type is our proprietary interlocking flange system designed to attach directly to existing drywall, popcorn or plaster ceilings with #6 drywall screws (intended for ceiling installations only). The screws are not visible.
The Nail-Up panel has a 1/4″ overlapping seam and is designed to be nailed to a wood substrate (plywood, furring strips, joists). We recommend 18 gauge brad nails for installation. The nails are visible, but can be concealed with touch-up paint.
Drop-In panels are made to fit a standard 24″ x 24″ suspended ceiling grid system with 15/16″ bar widths. Our Drop-In panels have a 1/8″ embossed edge that helps it nest into the grid opening. If you have a 24″ x 48″ grid, we offer T-bar pieces to easily convert it into a 24″ x 24″ grid.
All of our products carry an ASTM E 84-03b fire rating (Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials). If you have any questions, call: 888-612-7573
