UK: Ceiling Tiles: Ceiling Tile Manufacturers & Suppliers
ABOUT CEILING TILES
Ceiling tiles normally form part of a suspended ceiling system, constructed of aluminium sections and hangers. Their main purpose is to conceal pipework and wiring above the suspended ceiling. They can also provide sound absorbency and heat insulation. Ceiling tiles may be made of mineral or metal. In the case of metal ceiling tiles, perforations are provided to produce sound absorption. Ceiling tiles may be removed for access either by unclipping, or by downward hinges. Where ceiling height is limited, ceiling tiles may be fixed directly to the underside of the ceiling. Leading UK suppliers of ceiling tiles are profiled below the panel of sponsored links.

Burgess: Ceiling Tiles. Burgess Architectural Products is one of Europe's leading suppliers of advanced metal suspended ceiling systems. The company's major manufacturing plant is located centrally in the United Kingdom at Hinckley in Leicestershire. The Burgess Clip-In system is probably the most widely used metal tile ceiling system. The tiles, manufactured to fine press tool tolerances, are clipped into a concealed Tee Bar grid. Tiles are automatically levelled in the grid by special 'Pip & Stop' registers, which are pressed into the side flanges of the tiles during manufacture. The robust grid system is easily installed and tiles can be removed and replaced for access to services. Modular or circular light fitting and grilles can be integrated within the Clip-In System, and various acoustical criteria can be met with the inclusion of acoustic inlays.
