Profab 5000 - Access panel

The 5000 series range of hinged steel access panels provides modular access into ‘lay-in’ mineral fibreboard tiles on exposed grid where regular access to mechanical and electrical services is required.

The welded metal frame holds a metal door tray designed to accept the same selected ceiling tile as in the surrounding ceiling. The door is hinged via fully adjustable concealed hinges and is held closed by either a concealed budget lock (BL) or security key lock (SL) which opens towards the user. The door is removable to facilitate installation of the ceiling board or if future damage occurs.

Manufactured to suit exact tile modules, either as 600 or as 1200 mm, square or rebated (tegular) edge and 24 or 15 mm wide tee grid systems.

Supplied powder coated semi-gloss white all-over unless they are specified to match the tee grid colour, as is usual for panels that contain ‘dummy’ tee sections.

Panels should be independently supported on threaded rod or angle. 600 x 1200 mm or larger panels should be braced to prevent any lateral movement.

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