Profab 9000 - Access panel

The 9000 series range of hinged steel access panels provides access into sealed plasterboard or sandwich panel (demountable) wall and ceiling systems where access to mechanical and electrical services is required.

The welded metal frame holds a metal door tray which is hinged via fully adjustable concealed hinges and is held closed by either a push catch ([PC], not available for 1FR panel) or a security sealed key lock (SL). The door then opens towards the user.

The door is removable if damage occurs or during installation.

Panels are manufactured either as fully concealed so that after installation only a 2 mm wide door line is visible (BF), or alternatively, manufactured for retrofitting where the 25 mm picture frame surround is visible (PF). The PF type is also available with a modified frame for installation into 60 mm sandwich panel demountable structure. A constant gap is maintained between the door and frame by the fully adjustable hinge and dome location system.

Panels are supplied powder coated semi-gloss white all over as standard but can be supplied using plastic coated steel or stainless steel. Anti-bacterial paint is also available as an optional extra.

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