 Decorative metal tiles from Andy Thornton were specified by the interior designers Bradley Architecture for the ceiling and walls around the bar of the latest TGI Friday’s, which opened in Halifax last month. This has created an eye-catching feature at the latest opening for this iconic bar and restaurant brand which is currently undertaking a major roll-out across the country. Andy Thornton is the exclusive UK distributor for the world’s largest manufacturer of authentic metal ceiling and wall tiles. Popular for a wide range of contract ceiling applications, the tiles are very versatile. As well as proving popular for ceiling decoration, they are suitable for a whole range of other applications, including for complete walls, dado panelling, bar fronts and shop counters. They are being used extensively in restaurant and bar interiors as well as for retail and office environments.   Manufactured in high quality steel, there is a wide range of designs to choose from. The tiles are formed on an original ‘Mammoth’ power press, which dates back to 1896. This delivers an amazing 800 tons of pressure at every blow, ensuring consistent quality and sharp detail on every panel. The tiles can either be nailed in place onto timber batons and combined with decorative cornice as seen here at TGI’s, or can simply be dropped into a standard ceiling grid systems for ease of installation. The most popular finish is in its natural state as shown, which just requires a clear gloss polyurethane finish for protection. The tiles can also be plated in brass, copper or chrome, or pre-painted in any RAL or BS colour.
