In the past ceiling tiles consisted of tin plates that had a pattern punched into this plate. Creating a 3-dimensional pattern. These days they are reproduced at the same way, only now in 0.25 mm steel.An architectural element that can be applied with any kind of finish and in many pressed designs.
The oldest tiles were mainly treated white to make it look like a hand carved plaster.
Later wonderful Art Deco patterns and metal finishes appeared. Just tin, or copper, brass copper, bronze, lead, silver and gold. Even later also painted ones.Ceiling tiles originate from the late 1800’s and were seen in Victorin buildings.
Mostly in North America in the late 19th and early 20th century. In the end they were mass-produced between 1890 and 1930. The highly decorative metal ceilings were mostly seen in Ohio, Pennsylvania, and the New York area.Today the ceiling tiles are available again in all their glory. A priceworthy alternative is that you buy the untreated plates and you arrange the finish yourself. Packhus is proud to be part of the renaissance of this impressive heritage.
