It is usually made of ceramic. It can also be made of glass, cork, concrete, wood, or other materials. Marble, onyx, or granite are used for stone tiles. The manufacture of tiles differs according to the place that they will use for. The wall tiles are thinner than the floor ones.
Drop ceiling tiles grid
The drop ceiling tiles grid is the framework that carries the tiles and the decorations. The grid also carries the external lighting. The drop ceiling tiles grid is constructed based on the interlocking of metal sections. The drop ceiling tiles structure hangs down from a bracket that is connected to the floor slab. The drop ceiling tiles are fixed to the grids in the last step.
You need a good design to integrate the partition system allowing the tiles, the grids, and the partitions to be intersected neatly.

You should be acquainted with the main parts of the drop ceiling tiles grid. There are four parts to take care with:
Wall angle – it is screwed to the outside walls and supports most of the other parts that meet the walls. The main T’s are attached to it.
Main T’s – they run perpendicular to the ceiling joists to support the other parts.
2` x 4` T’s – they interlock into the main T’s. They form the main grid pattern.
Ceiling tiles – they fill in the open space of the ceiling system. They come in two sizes: 2` x 4` & 2` x 2`.
Drop ceiling tiles: the installation
You can use 2`x 4` tiles for a 9`room wide and 14`-6 long and the ceiling joists will be placed 9` apart. You also can place the main T rows 4` apart.
