Tin ceiling tiles from the 1890’s are popular again and Andy Thornton offers a wide selection to make any ceiling a masterpiece. Choose from a number of original designs and many different finishes can be applied to provide a brighter or antique finished look to your room.

These tin ceiling tiles are made from 0.25mm steel and are easy to install and maintain, have good fire resistance and add tremendous character to any hotel, restaurant or bar interior. Each ceiling tile is made on an original 100 year old mammoth press. Some 800 tons of force is applied to ensure crisp definition and accurate detail.

Originally, ceiling tiles were nailed in place, but suspended ceiling drop-in tiles are now more popular. Tiles from Andy Thornton can be fitted into a conventional metric or imperial ceiling grid using spring clips or drop-in plasterboard backing blanks. Tin ceiling cornice is also available in a variety of heights and projections to add the perfect finishing touch.

All tiles are usually supplied unfinished for painting on site. Sprayed finishes are available in any BS or RAL colour and a fire retardant paint can also be applied.
