  1. Default Ceilings for an Indoor Haunt 
    #1
    Greetings.
    I'm in the works of improving my ceilings. I have an indoor haunt in a mall, and currently my ceilings are those white 2ftx2ft tiles that look like an office. While I can't build a ceiling on top of my walls because that would block the sprinkler system, I can put a thin layering on the current white tiles. That said, I'm considering something like this: http://www.betterthantin.com/ceiling...productID.1461 (and painting them myself), but they are not as haunted as I would like them to be. Does anyone know of vendors of ceiling facades or ceiling tiles that can be used for a haunt? (aka creepy ceiling facades or creepy ceiling tiles).

    Also, I may just decide to make my own tiles out of tin. Does anyone know where i can get a huge roll of tin or other cheap flexible metal?

    You could just get a good painter to paint the ceiling to look like anything you want, cracked plaster, old broken lath wood. thats what i would do.

    Our white ceiling tiles were painted black. They just taped off the sprinklers and sprayed it with an airless. Ceiling=Gone

    I'm witl Joel if they will let you paint it. But we had the same problem a long Time ago and we took the tiles out and used electrical tape on the grid to block it out. In some areas we even put painted luan zip tied to the ceiling grid for a ceiling and it worked great we just cut circles for the sprinklers. Hope this helps.

    A few years ago I went to a haunt that had 2x4's spaced every 2 feet across the ceiling and they had screen stapled to it with a light shining sideways on it. the light made it look solid and the water would go right through it.The 2x4's give it a solid look when looking down a long hall.
    We use this method in our haunt to give it the feeling of having ceilings. Its very effective and the fire marshall approves it.
    Just something you might want to look into and you can get the screen in large rolls. Its easy to staple to the 2x4's.
    I like it better than the camo netting because it gives a cleaner smoother look.

    These guys carry ceiling type vacuform patterns. They are a little thinner than what we see at the show but they are reasonable.

    Give them a try. Shipping reasonable too.

    I am very interested in this idea, do you have any pictures that show how this effect worked? Do you mean a metal mesh screen like for a screen door or something else?
