 What are the main styles of ceiling tiles?

Lay-In Tegular

Lay-In ceiling tiles rest entirely
above the surface of the support grid:

Tegular ceiling tiles extend
below the surface of the support grid:

 Most older ceiling tiles were the lay-in style, but most newer ceilings that are being installed today are of the tegular style.

To match the design of the different tiles, Oberon offers enclosure options which simulate both styles of ceiling tiles.


Using the 1064 Series as an example,
what is the difference between the Model 1064-00 and the Model 1064-T?

Principle applies to any model ceiling enclosure that features both a
“-00” or AP-specific designation and a “-T” version

Model 1064-00

simulates the lay-in ceiling tile
(sits on top of the support grid)

Model 1064-T

simulates the tegular style ceiling tile
(extends below the surface to the support grid)

how they match up with the ceiling tile varieties:
