Your suspended ceiling has faithfully served its purpose for years, but now the need for replacement tiles arises due to unforeseen events like a burst pipe or maintenance work. The challenge? Identifying the right tiles for a seamless restoration. Don't fret – we've got you covered with our guide on how to determine which ceiling tiles you need, even if the original details have faded from memory.

Size Matters

Measure the length, width, and thickness of your tile. While most tiles are 595x595mm (fitting a 600 x 600mm grid space) and approximately 15mm thick, variations exist. Some tiles range from 13mm to 40mm in thickness. Uncommon sizes may be key indicators of the tile's brand or type.

Edge Detail

Explore the edge details, which generally fall into three categories: board edge, tegular edge, and microlook edges. Board edges offer a flat and uniform appearance, sitting on the metal grid. Tegular edge tiles have a rebate that sits on the grid, creating texture and depth. Identifying the edge type aids in choosing the correct replacement.

Style Differentiation

Suspended ceiling styles vary, and visual distinctions matter. Fissured tiles with textured surfaces differ from plain ones. Considerations such as fire resistance, acoustics, or antimicrobial properties may influence your choice. Textured tiles often indicate a mineral fibre base, while flat white tiles lean towards rockwool-based options like Rockfon and Ecophon.

Application Consideration

Reflect on the application context of your ceiling tiles, such as:

  • Office ceiling tiles
  • Classroom ceiling tiles
  • Kitchen ceiling tiles
  • Swimming pool ceiling tiles
Technical Specifications

Determine if your ceiling tiles fall into specific technical categories, such as:

  • Acoustic ceiling tiles
  • Humidity-resistant ceiling tiles
  • Light-reflecting ceiling tiles

Understanding the technical aspects ensures that the replacement tiles meet the necessary requirements.

By considering these factors, you can navigate the process of identifying and selecting the right ceiling tiles for your suspended ceiling, ensuring a seamless and effective replacement. If you need help, call our sales team on 01902 239250.
