What Are Suspended Ceiling Tiles Made From?

Mineral Fibre Ceiling Tiles

Ceiling tiles are made from a variety of processed, recycled and natural materials, depending on the particular tile in question. Materials used include recycled news print, clay, perlite, starch and fibre glass, with different quantities of each used, depending on the characteristics and performance of the tile. For example, a ‘soft’ mineral fibre tile will contain more fibre glass or mineral wool which allows a higher level of sound absorption but less sound attenuation/insulation than a ‘hard’ mineral fibre tile. This is because mineral fibre tiles contain more clay, which is heavier/denser and therefore provides better insulation.

To create the finished product, the materials above are mixed together in a water based process before being cured and bound together by heat. To complete the process, the boards are cut to size using a laser and finished with a water based paint, before the decorative pattern is added.

Metal Ceiling Tiles

We can also provide a variety of metal ceiling tiles which offer a functional and stylish finish to a premises. Metal Ceiling Tiles in conjunction with the steel ceiling grid are a credible and high-end alternative to traditional mineral fiber ceilings.

*Please note that asbestos is not present in any of the ceiling tiles we sell.
