To find replacement tiles, you will need to find the item number of your current tiles. You can do that by removing the ceiling tile and flipping it over. Once you do that, locate the item # on the back of the tile. Enter the item number on our ceiling replacement page to get your match.
Dust and loose dirt may easily be removed by light brushing or with a vacuum cleaner. The best attachments to use are the ones for cleaning upholstery or walls. Make sure to clean in one direction only to prevent rubbing dust into the surface of the ceiling.
After loose dust has been removed, other marks can be easily erased with an ordinary eraser. Although, a fresh wall cleaner may be preferred.
Mineral fiber ceilings may be cleaned with a moist cloth or a sponge dampened in water containing mild soap. The sponge should contain as little water as possible. After washing, the soapy film should be wiped off with a cloth or sponge slightly dampened in clean water.
Look for the disinfectable and cleanable icons for more information on your specific ceiling tile. You can also download our cleaning and disinfecting guidelines for more information.
It is recommended to change ceiling tiles out every 10 years. We have a 10-year warranty on most ceiling tiles. You can always patch and match a few tiles in the interim to transform any space or fix damages.
All of our mineral fiber ceiling tiles and panels can be painted with latex paints. The front and back of 24-in x 24-in and 24-in x 48-in panels should be painted.
PLEASE NOTE: Field painting will void the warranty. We cannot guarantee that the surface-burning characteristics, fire-resistance ratings, acoustical performance, dimensional stability/sag, or light reflectance will remain the same after repainting. TECTUM tiles can be painted up to 6 times without losing acoustical performance.
The Noise Reduction Coefficient (NRC) value is the % of sound that can be absorbed by that tile. The best NRC ceiling tiles can absorb up to 95% of sound. Example: An NRC of .95 can absorb 95% of the sound that strikes the tiles surface.
The Ceiling Attenuation Class (CAC) value is the number of decibels the tile can block from leaving or entering a closed room when installed as a drop ceiling. The best ceiling tiles have a CAC of 45, which blocks 45 decibels of sound that hit the tiles surface.

Fire ratings refer to flame spread and smoke development. Ratings indicate how rapidly flame spreads on one surface as compared to another. The flame spread rating is broken into three categories: Class A, Class B and Class C. Class A products have a flame-spread of 25 or less, and smoke developed of 50 or less. Class C products have a flame-spread of 76-200, and smoke developed of 0-450. Class A products are appropriate in the majority of commercial applications and Class C products are appropriate in most residential applications.
Cascade tiles are extremely delicate and have a “dirty” look because of the shading. We ordered 16 cases and there were too many broken corners and edges. Some tiles looked damp and we had about 18-20 tiles that were unusable.
Ordering process was seamless and easy, product was shipped timely. I wasn't happy with condition of the shipped product, had I purchased at a local big box store half of the product would have been returned, a lot of the edges had been compromised from being shipped on an open pallet with no protection. The description on the product clearly stated 24 x 24 tile. Not true more like 23 13/16" x 23 13/16", when replacing an older ceiling tile and the grid was laid out for a 24 x 24 inch tile 3/16" is a big deal. I would consider your services again but would be asking more questions specifically about the product being ordered and HOW it will be shipped. Sorry but just stating the facts.
Most Armstrong ceilings and grid have a 30-year limited systems warranty when installed together and used under normal conditions. Most Armstrong grid has a stand-alone 10-year limited warranty. Get the specifics:
