Plastic ceiling tiles conquer moisture challenges in buildings and are designed for the health care, restaurant and hospitality markets or any facility with drop ceiling tiles. Plastic ceiling tiles are waterproof, mold resistant and can provide numerous sustainable design benefits.

This course reviews the history of dropped ceilings, dangers of moisture intrusion and mold growth in buildings, and benefits of choosing materials that meet these challenges.

Learning Objectives

  • Discuss the historical use of mineral fiber suspended ceiling tiles and the alternative use of sustainable plastic ceiling tiles.
  • Describe the dangers of moisture intrusion and mold growth into building systems and the effect on occupants and equipment.
  • Compare and contrast the benefits of the use of mineral ceiling tiles to plastic ceiling tiles and the health, safety and welfare benefits of waterproof plastic ceiling tiles.
  • Specify ceiling tiles that promote improved indoor air quality and meet the WELL Building Standard and the United States Green Building Council’s LEED rating system.
