Tegular Ceiling Tile

If you are looking for acoustic panels that can be used in noise reduction for suspended ceiling applications, you may want to consider tegular ceiling tile. Tegular tiles are an acoustical panel type with flanges or tabs on all four tile edges. This allows the tile to be dropped into and extend beyond the metal ceiling grid that holds the tile in place.

A Brief History of Tegular Ceiling Tile

During the early Muromachi Period spanning the years between 1337 and 1573 in Japan, dropped ceilings and ceiling panel tiles were used for aesthetic reasons. Now let's fast forward to the 1950s when US patent holder Donald A Brown was largely credited as the inventor of the more modern, acoustic, dropped ceilings.

Over its long history, suspended ceilings have touched almost every commercial interior and residential space in several different applications. The earlier suspended ceilings were much less accessible, so you would have to remove rows of tiles if you had to replace something. The suspended ceilings of today are much more accessible.

Where Do You Use Tegular Ceiling Tile?

You can use tegular ceiling tile the same way you can use other decorative ceiling tile options and interior solutions in your home or office. With tegular ceiling panels, you have a fair amount of flexibility, creating a stunning ceiling while achieving proper acoustic performance and maintaining a clean environment.

Here are a few ideas for tegular ceiling tile:

Create Multilayered Designs

You can use tegular ceiling tiles to create a multilevel design in any space you want. It is an added design element that will stun and provide acoustic benefits for an otherwise boring suspended system.

Add Dimension

There are also some tegular tiles that are reminiscent of old-world plaster ceilings with the added benefit of acoustics. You can use these tiles to quickly and easily add dimension with your sound blocking capabilities.

Incorporate a Textured Grid

Some tegular ceiling tiles are larger and scored to appear smaller. This helps camouflage the ceiling grid even better, making the ceiling panels look more textured.

Use in Healthcare Facilities

Tegular ceiling tiles can be used in healthcare facilities and be disinfected with EPA-approved cleaners. Since the tiles have a smooth texture reminiscent of drywall, they offer great sound absorption properties and are noise-blocking while also being water repellent and easy to clean.

Use in Schools

If you have an environment where you need noise control, like in a school, meeting room, or even nursery, tegular tile is a great option.

Tegular Tile vs Traditional Tile

Suspended ceilings offer convenience, and there are several design options to choose from when it comes to the tile you are going to use. Traditional tile with a square edge can hang directly on a suspended ceiling grid. On the other hand, a tegular edge-designed tile hangs approximately one-quarter inch below the grid, so it looks like the tiles are protruding.

Tegular tile can prove more difficult to work with compared to other traditional tile types, depending on the project and application. With standard square edge tiles, you can easily trim them down, so they fit how you need them to. Since tegular tile protrudes, trimming can prove to be a much more difficult process.

Choosing the Right Tegular Ceiling Tile

Since tegular ceiling tile offers a much more interesting design that is more appealing to people than a standard square edge design, you should choose carefully.

If you choose ceiling tile for a commercial space, you may want to consider thicker ceiling tiles with a higher noise reduction coefficient, so it absorbs sound better and offers improved building efficiency.

Installing Tegular Ceiling Tile

When ordering your tegular ceiling tile for your drop ceiling, you should order more to have some on hand in case you ever need to replace any. Installing each individual tile on your suspension grid is easy and simple. All you need are your ceiling tiles, a good pair of gloves, and a ladder. The gloves will help keep your tile clean during the installation process.

When starting, remove the old tile or any damaged tile by pushing it straight up and above the suspension grid. Tilt the tile and remove it from the metal frame. To install the new tegular ceiling panels, angle each tile into the frame and set it in place.

If you need to cut any of your tegular ceiling tiles, you want to avoid using a power saw. This will create too much dust and won't make your cutting job any more efficient. Tegular tiles are often made of compressed mineral fiber. So, when cutting mineral fiber ceiling tiles, use a utility knife.

Position the acoustic ceiling panel with the good side facing up. When you cut, the fibers are pushed out and can damage the side of the panel. Make your measurements before cutting, and use a carpenter's square or a straight edge to ensure you are making a straight and stable cut.

Final Thoughts on Tegular Tiles

If you need to control the noise level in an environment known for noise, like in schools, healthcare facilities, and offices, you can benefit from the acoustic sound absorption and noise blocking performance of tegular ceiling tiles.
