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.
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.
If you have a short ceiling something dark like a wood ceiling will make the room feel even smaller. Cathedral ceilings on the other hand provide an air of space that tends to be more comfortable, and it is the cathedral ceilings you can really decorate with flair.
