Invented and patented by The American Tin Ceiling Co., the Snaplock tin ceiling panel eliminates much of the additional installation material and labor cost involved with installing a traditional nailup tin ceiling. Unlike traditional nail-up tin ceiling panels, the new proprietary Snaplock tin ceiling panel can be installed without a plywood substrate using only drywall screws and no caulking or touch-up painting. The Snaplock tin panel is attached directly to drywall with six drywall screws and a proprietary interlocking flange system allows the corresponding panels to ‘Snap’ into each other. This method significantly reduces tin ceiling installation requirements and saves customers an average of $5-$7 per panel in installation costs versus the traditional nail-up panel. If you are handy with a screwdriver, a ladder and a tinsnips, you should be able to install a Snaplock tin ceiling.
“This is the first modification of the tin ceiling panel in 130 years.” commented Gary Shapiro, President of The American Tin Ceiling Co. “We invented our Snaplock™ tin ceiling panel to allow for easy installation”.
The American Tin Ceiling Company manufactures, finishes and distributes their patent pending Snaplock tin ceiling panel, the traditional Nailup tin ceiling panel and Dropin tin ceiling panels for suspended ceiling grids. They use the original .010 gauge tin plated steel to produce beautiful, authentic quality tin ceilings. The American Tin Ceiling Company also offers tin accessories like tin crown molding, flat molding and filler panels. The panels can be finished in a variety of unique powdercoat colors.
“We offer a Low Price Guarantee”, stated Gary Shapiro. “Because we are the manufacturer, our tin ceiling panel prices are the lowest in the country. By producing efficiently, and using our website as our company brochure, we can offer low prices that our competitors can not.
The American Tin Ceiling Company assists builders, contractors, designers and homeowners with the preliminary layout and design of their tin ceiling. Consumers can call toll free to talk with a designer and fax or email room diagrams to receive design recommendations and price quotes.
