Tin Ceiling Tiles Metal Ceiling Tiles Plastic Vinyl Ceiling Tiles Alternatives
Tin Ceiling Tiles, meaning 100% tin, most likely do not exist as careful research will most likely reveal they are Tin Plated Steel Ceiling Tiles. The reason is Tin is a soft silvery-white metal that is very light and easy to melt. Being so soft, tin is rarely used as a pure metal; instead it is combined with other metals in order to make alloys all that possess tin’s numerous beneficial properties. These include a low toxicity level and a high resistance to corrosion. Many everyday items that we associate with tin such as “tin cans” and “tinfoil”, are actually misnomers. Tin cans are in fact made from a compound referred to as tinplate, which is steel sheet metal that has been coated with a thin layer of tin. Tinplate efficiently combines the strength of steel with tin’s luster, corrosion resistance and low toxicity. Most Tin Ceiling Tiles are tin-plated meaning they are made from sheet metal, thin coated with tin and in all likely hood will require painting. Another type of Metal Ceiling Tiles are those made from Unfinished Aluminum . Ceiling Tiles made of Aluminum ( unlike raw tin-plated steel ceiling tiles) will not rust. Steel will rust even if coated with tin plating where as Aluminum will never rust. As with any unfinished Metal Ceiling Tiles they require painting. There are many Metallic Paints on the market and to purchase these beautiful Metallic Paints in for example Copper or Silver is very expensive and cost around $150.00 per gallon of paint. As a rule Metal Ceiling Tiles are designed to fit into a 15/16 Inch Grid suspended Ceiling System.
Metal Ceiling Tiles have a great variance in price and as an example Solid Aged Copper Ceiling Tile can easily cost upwards of around $65.00 per 24 inch x 24 inch ceiling tile or about $16.25 per square foot. Tin-Plated Ceiling Tiles, Sheet metal covered with tin cost around $12.00 per 24 inch x 24 inch ceiling tile or about $3.00 per SF and Unfinished Aluminum Ceiling Tiles can cost about $15.00 per Ceiling Tile or about $3.75 per square foot.
