ABOUT CEILING TILES
Ceiling Tiles may be applied directly to the ceiling of a room, or may form the panels in a suspended or drop ceiling. In both cases their purpose is partly functional - to provide sound absorbency, and to cut down the transmission of sound and heat through the ceiling. In the case of ceiling tiles used in suspended or drop ceilings, they have the advantage of concealing unsightly plumbing, wiring and ventilation equipment under the ceiling. Ceiling Tiles are available with a wide range of geometrical and ornate raised patterns, and in various colors.
