Cool Ceiling Panel Selection

Hello, can anyone tell me if there's a website describing the specs of a ceiling panel (trying to decide which one to get and they are all different). Unless someone here can describe it!

The info I need is on...

Flame spread (what does a higher number or lower number mean)
Smoke Developed (same)
Fire Rating (Difference between Class A and UL Class)
What's better (solid panels or the fibre one's)

Thanks, T

well, the first thing you have to do is determine the requirements for the application you are considering. Like if it's a garage you'll have some fire rating you probably don't need for a bathroom.

"Better" is a relative term. Is it "better" to spend more money than you need to? On the other hand, there are cases where a little extra gets you a lot - that's where I would focus.
