Silencio Ceiling Tiles are finished with a clay coating and then with a coat of high quality latex paint. Silencio Ceiling Tiles are an environmentally friendly line of products, being produced from 95 % natural wood fibre (from wood shavings and sawdust) and 5% bonding materials. Certain patterns also provide excellent acoustical properties.n.
