AMF THERMATEX Star Tiles Review

AMF THERMATEX Star ceiling tiles are painted, micro-perforated mineral wool ceiling tiles with excellent physical properties in fire resistance and acoustic performance. Not to mention Thermatex Star also provides a budget-conscious option with good acoustic performance. In addition, Thermatex Star tiles are versatile enough to be used anywhere and are especially well-suited to retail showrooms and basic offices.

My thoughts and experience with THERMATEX® Star

I am a contractor who deals with many clients who don’t yet know what want. It’s up to me to give the client options that can satisfy their needs.  Every ceiling tile manufacturer has their economy range acoustic ceiling tiles. Generally speaking, I consider most to be very similar in terms of acoustic performance. This, of course, is in direct relation to the price the consumer pays for the tile. Like all-economy range tiles, Star has a flat painted finish that looks good however, marks easily.

The good thing is they are priced very cost-effectively and replacement isn’t an expensive excise if you suffer damage or excessive marking. Clients tend to prefer acoustic tiles with finer fissures over deeper more course fissures. This is where the star truely shines! Its fissure pattern is finer and more sparse than the majority of its competitors at that price point. Based on public opinion this is the preferred pattern for economy tiles. In over 50 percent of projects, we do, aesthetics is an important consideration for the client.

As a matter of fact, the vast majority of my clients love the outstanding value of AMF THERMATEX Star as it is nearly always considered for their ceilings. Basically, other similar products are simply not openly available at this price point with the same sparse fissure pattern. Above all, the big seller here is VALUE! What you get for the amount you pay.

As the contractor, I’m impressed by the value of these tiles considering its price point. In other words, You get good performance combined with nice fine fissures.
