Genesis is the last ceiling tile you'll ever need to install. They are manufactured from cellular PVC with both smooth and textured surfaces available. Genesis tiles are perfect for commercial kitchens, food processing plants, healthcare and education facilities, marine applications, high-humidity climates and clean rooms.
The panels are made of white, virgin-grade PVC vinyl and work with most standard 15/16" grid systems.
Genesis will not spot, stain, rot, swell or peel due to moisture.
They are impact resistant and are available in 2'x2' panels.
We purchased a fixer upper home with the upstairs bathroom right above the main floor bathroom. There were signs of previous water leakage on the ceiling but nothing that appeared new. We were in the home for a few months when we did determined it was leaking and the ceiling on the main level had to be removed. It is a small bathroom but because of it being an older home we decided to put this in instead of redoing the whole ceiling (we have plaster walls and ceiling) for time purposes and being cautious because of location on second floor of the bathroom. We redid the upstairs bathroom because there were structure issues with floor slopping and no support under the toilet that was leaking. This was a life saver because of course within months there was issues with the placement of the wax seal on the toilet upstairs and I was able to hear the drip drip on the ceiling tile. I easily removed the tile to see where the water was coming from and corrected it. You can wash the ceiling tile down and then replace back up. We would have not known it was leaking again until the ceiling started showing signs and would have had to replaced again if we redid a conventional ceiling. I would recommend this highly and my friends and family love the way it turned out! You can also buy lighting brackets to attach a lighting fixture.
