Contract Plasterboard Door
Contract Range Plasterboard Access Panels provide a protected plasterboard faced low profile access solution. For use through plasterboard walls and ceilings for access to building engineering services where space is at a premium. The narrow 24mm profile produces a lightweight, robust solution that can be used in all types of wall or ceiling construction.
The panels consist of a plasterboard faced pivoting door tray and frame with a push catch or square drive operated lock. The door tray encapsulates a layer of 12.5mm plasterboard with a simulated beaded edge to the frame and door tray. This acts as a key for the tape and joint or skim coat. The product also has the versatility to be fire rated up to 2 hours for certain sizes.
The beaded frame is used for the Plasterboard Range. A beaded frame type (SBF) has perforated flange to key into the surrounding membrane. This is used where the surface has yet to be skimmed or tape and jointed.
We are able to provide powder coated finishes in the full range of RAL colours upon request – additional costs may apply.
Available with up to 2 hours fire rating. Fire testing undertaken independently by BM TRADA meeting both EN and BS standards in UKAS approved test laboratories. Certification available upon request.
The panels are fitted with a square drive operated lock accessed by the ‘SLIK’ Invisible Keyhole mechanism. This dispenses with plastic caps that highlight the keyhole position and draw unwanted attention to the panel. The door tray encapsulates a layer of 12.5mm plasterboard with a simulated beaded edge which provides a key for the tape and joint or skim coat. These panels must be fitted prior to the plastering so the metal beaded frame parts of the door and frame can be incorporated into the ceiling or wall membrane in the same way as the conventional stop bead.
When valuable time has been spent ensuring all aspects of a build is finished to the highest degree, a dirty or missing keyhole cap can ruin the entire finish.
Missing or grubby white caps call unwanted attention to details in the structure intended to go unnoticed. When specifying an access panel make sure the appearance won’t spoil you design intent.
With our patented SLIK system, (Spring Loaded Invisible Keyhole), the keyhole ﬂap is pushed aside when the key is inserted into the lock and springs back into place when the key is withdrawn.
