It’s common knowledge that no room is ever perfectly square, nor is any wall perfectly flat or straight and we realize this.
To accommodate these inevitable circumstances the Perimeter Beam Boards of each Tilton Coffered Ceiling System can be scribed and/or tapered to the surrounding walls to account for differences between the perfectly square system and the imperfect room or walls. Due to our proprietary design, every system we build has more than adequate space between the outermost coffer modules and the surrounding walls to allow for compensation and adjustment in this regard.
Furthermore, when utilizing the Perimeter Molding option for your project, any differences between the scribe or taper on the Perimeter Beam Board and the surrounding walls will be covered so they need not be perfect or tight to the walls.
Alternatively, if you have opted not to include a Perimeter Molding for your project, you will need to take extra time and care to ensure that your scribes and/or tapers are tight to the surrounding walls and visually acceptable.
