Stab-and-click Ceiling Panels

A firm “click” tells installers that Gladius ceiling tiles have snapped correctly into place. The new panel and grid system from Hunter Douglas improves installation efficiency, as panels simply stab into the grid on one side and snap into place on the other.

The patented stab-and-click design allows for an extremely flat face and gives installers ease of mind when they hear grid engagement with an audible click, even when working around sprinklers, lighting, speakers or security features. A lay-in, 24-by-24-inch tile that lies flat, Gladius will not bend or warp under pressure from the surrounding grid. The panels, which include a square-edged 1/4-inch reveal, are made with a minimum of 70 percent recycled content.

Gladius highlights include:

  • Accommodates industry-standard service devices (lighting, diffusers, speaker and security devices)
