Suspended Ceiling for Workshop

I realize that this topic may be a bit outside the forum's scope in that is not actually a residential problem, but I am wondering if anyone can offer some advice regarding the practicality of installing a suspended ceiling in a hobby woodworking shop. Any advice regarding suitable materials (area may sometimes be a bit damp and/or unheated), suspension systems, fire resistance, and any other pros and cons for this application would be greatly appreciated. This shop is approximately 650 square feet, with a 10' ceiling. I would like to use lay-in 2'X4' fluorescent fixtures for lighting.

I don't see any problem as long as you use the vinyl faced ceiling tiles. These tiles are 5/8" drywall with a vinyl covering. Great for fire code, moist areas. Will also wear better than regular cellulose tiles.
