Ceiling Tiles and Floods

“PAWTUCKET – In Pawtucket’s City Hall there are buckets set up to catch dripping water, and ceiling tiles that are completely rotted through… creating quite an eyesore on the top floor.”

“Leaking and flooding have been issues under the building’s tower for years,  but now there’s an even bigger concern.”

“”Sinus problems, breathing issues, and headaches and so forth and so on,” said City Councilor Albert Vitali as he described the symptoms more than 10 city hall employees told him they have been experiencing.”

“He says they believe the health issues stem from mold.”

Asbestos Found in Ceiling Tiles at University

“A student publication at Sonoma State University reports that traces of deadly asbestos dust have been found in at least one building on the sprawling campus in Rohnert Park, California, prompting officials to advise faculty members not to disturb the dust lest they create a health hazard.

“The article in the Sonoma State Star explains that friable asbestos was found in floor and ceiling tiles in Stevenson Hall, which houses the offices of the school’s Sociology Department.”

Ceiling tiles manufactured with asbestos are toxic. 

Our ceiling tiles are 100% waterproof (no mold) and asbestos free. They will never need to be replaced. For more information on what hazards to look for on your ceiling tiles visit http://www.newceilingtiles.com/pages/mold.html

Water Damage to cost $15,000

A broken water main caused a minor flood inside the Roanoke Rescue Mission’s main dining area early Friday, damaging ceiling tiles and covering floors with more than 2 inches of water.

This is the second time this year that the Rescue Mission has dealt with a water-related emergency. Earlier, the sprinkler system burst in the women’s and children’s center as pipes thawed from a frigid cold spell. The water damaged three rooms, floors and equipment in the Information Technology area. Repairs to that area, which cost about $15,000, had just been completed last week.

Due to weather, more roofs will be leaking. As a result more drop ceiling will be damaged and will have to be replaced. Why continue to purchase ceilings that have to be replaced when wet. 

Our ceiling tiles are 100% waterproof and never have to be replaced. Check out our website and vast inventory for everything you need for the last ceiling tile system you ever have to buy.

Water damages estimate at $500k

“Recent winter storm damage could cost Guilford County Schools more than twice the amount budgeted for emergency repairs. Greeson estimates that the school system had about $500,000 in storm damage to its facilities. Allen Middle had more damage inside the building — water seeped into seven classrooms. and four classrooms had about 1½ inches of standing water.”

On Tuesday the ceiling at an assisted living complex in Lawrenceville collapsed. Firefighters responded to a call at Ashton Hall Assisted Living, 1155 Lawrenceville Highway at about 6:30 a.m. Tuesday. A sprinkler pipe in a resident’s room busted, damaging the several ceiling tiles and causing it to give way. Many residents were evacuated. 

Sadly this is a common occurrence. Traditional fiber ceiling tiles can fail even with the slightest amount of moisture. Waterproof ceiling tiles never fail due to moisture. They never mold or rot and will never have to be replaced. See more at http://www.newceilingtiles.com

What is PVC?

  • What is PVC?

PVC, or Polyvinyl chloride, is the third-most widely produced plastic. PVC is perfect for construction applications because it is more effective than traditional materials such as copper, iron or wood. PVC has a high hardness and is very impact resistant. PVC’s relatively low cost, biological and chemical resistance and workability have resulted in it being used for a wide veriety of applications. PVC demand is likely to increase at an average annual rate of 3.9% over the next years.

 

 

  • What makes PVC a good material for Ceiling Tiles?

PVC is vastly superior to traditional materials used in ceiling tiles. PVC Ceiling Tiles are 100% waterproof and 100% sag proof. Because PVC Ceiling Tiles never sag or rust, they would never have to be replaced. The materials used in Acoustical Tiles such as fiberboard are known to contain dangerous materials like Asbestos. As acoustical tiles absorb water, they will start to become a harbor for dangerous molds and mildews. PVC repels water, never sags or rusts and will never need to be replaced.

 

  • Is PVC as safe as other more traditional ceiling tile materials?

PVC has Class A flame spread and smoke developed index that’s approved for all commercial kitchens and dining areas.
