1 lb density expanded polystyrene is used to make melt away ceiling tiles. These EPS ceiling tiles are used in place of standard fiberboard ceiling tiles when the sprinkler heads are above the ceiling. A typical application would be when office space constructed inside an existing warehouse with a sprinkler system. The tiles are called “melt away” because they are designed to melt from the heat of the fire to allow the heat to set off the sprinkler heads above. The EPS ceiling tiles which are typically 3/4″ or 1″ thick fit into standard 2×2 or 2×4 ceiling grid. This particular application was a tegular or “dropped” tile which is notched to come down slightly below the grid.
