Combine the shape of the ceiling tile edges with the width and color of the suspension system to create a unique ceiling that contributes to the overall architectural expression of the space. Tegular ceiling tiles have an SL edge and are available in four versions. Tiles with a tegular edge are square (SL, SLN) or angled (SLT, SLTN) and can be mounted in a grid system with either 9/16″ (SLN, SLTN) or 15/16″ (SL, SLT) profiles. The grid system is less dominant with the narrower 9/16″ profile.
Ceiling tiles with tegular edge are demountable. Basalt rock is the primary raw material used to make Insulated Ceiling Tiles, stone wool products. It is a natural resource found in abundance around the world. Every year, volcanic activity and plate tectonics create new reserves of basalt rock. In order to reduce our environmental impact from transportation of the basalt rock, most of the factories are located very close to extraction sites. All Insulated Ceiling Tile products sold in North America are manufactured under stringent environmental management and quality control systems (ISO 14001/ISO 9001). Stone wool, the core material of our stone wool products, can withstand temperatures up to 2150 °F (1177 °C). It does not contribute to the development and spread of fire. It is made from basalt rock and is non-combustible.
Fire performance describes how well a building component can – for a stated period of time – hold back fire and prevent it from penetrating from one room to another. The basic criteria used to describe the fire performance of a product are:
- Flame spread
- Smoke development
We rigorously test our fire-rated products to ensure they meet or exceed code requirements. By providing both fire rated and seismic rated designs, you can count on Insulated Ciling Tile specialty metal ceilings and Chicago Metallic® suspensions systems to provide the right solution for your application.
Insulated Ceiling Tile panel products – being made from stone wool – are between 50 to 80% lighter than wet felted mineral fiber or gypsum ceiling tiles. This can help avoid back injuries by simplifying manual handling.
Due to lightweight products, Insulated Ceiling Tiles are able to offer solutions that can be installed faster and more economically. Our products can be cut easily and precisely with one stroke, without crumbling or using any special tools – all while inside the building, as no dust is generated.
Cutting to shape around walls and services can be easily done using a sharp knife. To maintain the overall appearance of the ceiling, visible cut edges should be treated with the appropriate stone wool ceiling panel edge paint.
