Installing 2×2 & 2×4 Drop/Suspended Ceiling Tiles Into Ceiling Grid


Hi, Tim here was strictly ceilings in
this session will show you how to install ceiling tiles in the most common grid systems. We’ll
look at installing two by two and two by four tiles in standard and
fine line grid. We’ll also look at how to install flat
and reveal edge tiles. Then at the end of this video I show you
how to install a wood accented ceiling panel. Here’s our
project, we want to install a flat tile in this opening. Because of the length of
two by four tiles and of imperfections in the wall you’ll
want to start out by taking two measurements. Finally install a tile
into the ceiling grid like this and pull the tile back and forth just to make
sure that if it’s slightly loose and that
they’re are no. Follow the scribe line and cut to about 1/2 half the depth of the tile. This
will take approximately three passes be careful not to cut all the way. There
are differences in the way that we measure tiles for fine line grid let me show you. Fine line tiles are less
forgiving than standard tires because there is only about 1/8″ for the
tile the sit on. Then using a cordless drill a
hole saw cut through the panel like this. Install
the panel and there you have it. A very
professional looking Ceiling in a minimal amount of time.
