Tin plated steel ceiling panels possessed an additional characteristic that fueled their popularity. They have an hour burn rating at 1300 degrees, which provided an effective fire retardent. In the early 20th century, many first floor stores and shops had apartments homes on the second floor. Tin ceilings installed on the first floor gave the second floor residents adequate time to escape a deadly fire.
In most homes people have white ceilings, either sprayed on or in the form of white ceiling tiles. This can be a little boring, even when the ceiling has some texture to it. Some people do something a little different and paint their ceiling a different color, but this isn't all that common. Another option that can really make a ceiling stand out is the use of tin or faux tin tiles.
Reproduced tiles are made from a variety of materials such as tin, vinyl, wood and plastics, and they come in numerous colors and finishes. Popular colors for store-bought tin tiles are copper, bronze, gold, black, silver, rust, burgundy, mocha and whites or unpainted for custom colors. There are many companies that carry a variet of colors and styles. A newer tile snaps locks. These tiles can be screwed into any ceiling (drop, popcorn, etc.). You can order sample tiles to evaluate before you begin a project.
First, let us begin with a little background about tin ceiling tiles. Pressed or embossed tin ceilings were very popular during the Victorian Era as an affordable substitute for the plaster-designed ceilings found in wealthy European homes. Thin metal sheets of tin, copper or stainless steel were stamped with intricate patterns and often painted white to resemble the more expensively-produced, hand-carved or molded plaster ceilings. Companies in Ohio, New York and Pennsylvania mass produced thin metal plate during the late 1800s and created numerous patterns from which buyers could choose.
False ceilings are a popular way to change the look and feel of a ceiling, and make it stronger and sturdier too. You can apply the façade to either a part of the ceiling or the entire ceiling too. Mostly, Plaster of Paris is used to make false ceilings, and you can actually unleash your creativity while making the false ceiling. Whether you want some intricate design, or some letters and words on the ceiling, anything and everything is possible with false ceilings.
