Fissured suspended ceiling tiles are still the most mass-produced type of tile in the UK. Generally speaking, fissured tiles are the entry-level product in terms of price and performance. However, they are still perfectly suitable for many environments, including offices and retail environments.
All the leading manufacturers produce a fissured type ceiling tile. This allows them to cater for the mass market as well as specialising on their own particular fields. The market-leader is still the Tatra by Armstrong. Two types of fissured tile are produced – ‘directional fissured’ and ‘non-directional fissured’, simply referring to whether the fissures (or grooves) run in a direction down the tile or not.
Please note that there is also a fine fissured type of tile.
