Profab 1000 PD - Plasterboard access panel

The 1000PD series range of steel lockable access panels provides access into jointless plaster/ plasterboard ceilings, where access to mechanical and electrical services is required.

The metal frame holds a plasterboard faced door through a pivot hinge system. The door is held closed with a concealed budget lock (BL) which opens towards the user. The pivot hinge system allows the door to be removed during installation or if damage occurs. Panels are skim plastered and decorated on site to match the colour/texture of the adjacent finish. A constant 2 mm gap is maintained between the door and frame by the dome location system.

Doors are removable if damage occurs or during installation. Panels with simulated dry wall beaded frames (BF) are then decorated on site to match the colour/texture of the adjacent finish.

Suitable for use internally and only in areas of normal humidity. 1000/BF/PD/BL can be used horizontally where the panel is being installed prior to any tape and jointing or skim-coat plastering.

Customization of the access panel may be possible including alterative sizes, lock and paint colours, consult manufacturer for details.
