Mostly used in commercial or residential projects where the expensive 3 dimensional metal look is desired but the budget for real metal is not there. Plastic Ceiling Tiles look like Real Tin and can look as great and many say better than real metal including Copper or Silver etc. The PVC Ceiling Tiles with overlapping edges can be fixed on any Hard & Plain Surface with any good quality rubber base adhesive, such as DAP Original Gel Contact Cement or as we prefer Loctite Power Grab All Construction Purpose Construction Adhesive.
The reason for our preference is contact cement instantly adheres upon contact. Contact cement gel allows a little time, seconds only, to maneuver into desired final position. With Loctite Power Grab All Purpose Construction Adhesive the installer has more time, estimated 15 to 20 seconds to align and maneuver into desired final position.
The PVC Ceiling Tiles designed for installation to a clean smooth surface with overlapping edges can also be used for Grids, Drop or Suspended Ceilings will drop in the Grid. All PVC Ceiling Tiles can be glued to existing Acoustical Ceiling Tiles. All of our faux tin PVC glue up tiles are available in a 2 foot X 2 foot size. This is a standard size of design and customer should exercise caution to be aware of their intended use of the product.
As an example the PVC Ceiling Tiles designed to glue to a clean smooth surface are from edge to edge approximately 24.5 Inches x 24.5 inches. This allows the tile to be glued up with an overlapping edge of approximately ¼ inch. When these overlapping edge tiles are used for a Drop In Grid or Suspended application the actual design is 24 inches by 24 inches. In reality that again is a standard measurement in that the Standard Grid Ceiling System in the United States is designed to accommodate the actual Grid Size of approximately 23 ¾ Inches x 23 ¾ Inches.
Installation instructions for overlapping edges:
Just follow these 4 simple steps to install our 24” x 24” Overlapping Edge Decorative Ceiling System to most any clean hard smooth surface. It is really quick and easy.
1) Prepare the Surface Ceiling tiles and Plan & Test Installation:
The PVC Ceiling Tiles can be installed on any hard plain smooth clean surface. In fact some customers have installed over existing Popcorn Ceiling. Install by locating center of the room or installation surface or Draw an angle and draw straight lines in the corner (in width and length part) and make a 90 degree angle, for the starting point of pasting
A Clean Surface is necessary so be sure to wipe off the ceiling or other surface you are installing the tiles over and make it smooth and even. Remove loose plaster, paint, wall paper, and any oily residue etc. Draw a chalk line in the middle of the room (preferably through the light fixture electrical box). Select preferred adhesive, tape measure, straight edge, scissors, and box cutter, cleaning cloth or moist sponge
We recommend that all customers always test the application and allow it to rest at least 24 hours to evaluate the process and results to make an informed decision as whether the application is right for your particular scenario.
2) Apply the adhesive:
Apply any good quality urethane or rubber based adhesive only on the edges and raised portions of the PVC Ceiling Tile we recommend Contact Cement Gel by DAP Weldwood Original Formula or Loctite All Purpose Construction Adhesive to the back of the tile. If using Contact Cement we suggest you let it dry until adhesive solvents evaporate. Please check the drying time on the pack of the adhesive, usually it is anywhere between 2-5 minutes. Applying the adhesive on the ceiling also will improve bonding and strength. Approximately, 1 gallon of adhesive will be enough to cover 75 tiles or 300 square feet when used on both, the tiles and the ceiling.
3) Place & Press:
Place the sheet in the required position (first sheet at the 90 degree point if that is your desired installation method) and press firmly but gently. Overlap the edges with the previous sheet and press firmly with fingertips using gentle pressure. After completing first straight row work your way to the sides. Exercise caution not to get adhesive on fingers or onto the ceiling tiles.
4) Special notice:
The use of Contact Cement adhesive can easily get on the fingers and then on the ceiling tiles. These smudges of adhesive can be difficult to clean and the solvent used to clean can distort the Paint Color of the Tile.
CONGRADULATIONS – YOU NOW HAVE A BEAUTIFUL DECORATIVE CEILING!
