All of our products are manufactured from a T1 grade tin plated steel. This is generally referred to as "bright tinplate". The material thickness is 0.010". Our panels measure 2' x 2', our moldings all come in 4' lengths. All of our finishes are powder coated. Powder coating is an electrostatic process where polyester resin is baked onto the panels at 400 deg. F. Our faux finishes are hand applied over a powder coated base color. All of our products carry an ASTM E 84-03b approval (Surface Burning Characteristics of Building Materials). In order to specify our material we would need to know the following:
Which pattern? Specify pattern number.
Which style? Specify Snap-Lock, Nail-Up or Drop-In. The Snap-Lock panel is an interlocking system designed to attach directly to existing drywall or plaster with #6 drywall screws. The screws are not visible. The Nail-Up panel has a 1/4" overlapping seam and is designed to be nailed to a wood substrate. We recommend 3/8" plywood and 18 ga. brad nails. The nails are visible. The Drop-In panel is made to drop into a standard 15/16" suspended ceiling grid. Our Drop-In has a 1/8" embossed edge that helps it nest into the opening made by the grid.
