The tiles are astm C 1396. Had a hard time finding them for a decent price.
These tiles also have to be mold resistant? Or could you just cut a piece of sheetrock

Feedback appreciated

You can't replace a ceiling tile with a piece of sheetrock. :eek:hmy: You need to replace it with whatever the rest of the ceiling is to match. In a commercial kitchen this is especially important. Washability, sanitation and fire resistance are paramount requirements.

the tiles i've seen are NSF approved for commercial food prep areas.
look to be frp type plastic panels.

they have to be moisture resistant. in packing plants,
there is a lot of steam during washdown, and they abosb
it and sag till they fall out of the grid.

it's sad when that happens.

Blue or green sheet rock (for bathrooms) is moisture resistant, but still not approved.

True, they are more expensive than regular tiles but why should the cost matter to you? Didn't you figure the cost into the job? Or did you screw up and figure the cost of regular tiles- or worse, didn't think you had to replace any at all. :(
