Suspended Ceilings

Suspended ceilings, also called drop ceilings or a T-bar, are hung below a main ceiling. They are becoming more and more popular in modern design to allow easy connectivity of fixtures like sprinkler heads, lights and speakers.

Our drop-in ceiling tiles fit all standard 2 ft. x 2 ft. grids and have custom edges that sit flush against the grid. Suspended grids can be painted to match the tile color and they come with two clips for the back that puts pressure on the panel to lock it snuggly into place.

Barrel Vaults

Curved ceilings that are semi-cylindrical in design are formed from a series of arches side by side. Once popular in ancient Egypt and Roman architecture, they are making a comeback in contemporary design.

Our Nailup panels can be fitted to perfectly follow the curve or you can just as easily use a standard drop-in grid for installation.

Vaulted Ceilings

A term for arched ceilings or roofs, buttresses are used to supply resistance to these regal designs. The barrel is the simplest kind of vaulted ceiling which dates back to the early civilizations of the Sumerians and Babylonians.

They enjoyed a revival in the Gothic times of old-world Europe and are seeing another resurgence in America today. For cathedral and vaulted ceilings, m1 flat moldings with fillers are a popular choice to cover odd shapes.
