Gas Flue Inspection Panel
Specifically designed and tested to comply with the Gas Safe Regulations, this panel provides a high quality robust opening solution to inspect flues installed in voids. In addition to the two sizes required by the legislation, The Access Panel Company can manufacture compliant hatches to any size.
Since January 2013 Gas Engineers must be able to inspect the full length of flue from the boiler. In many circumstances this is not a problem. However in apartment buildings and flats where space saving advances have allowed boilers to be fitted in wall spaces the whole flue may not be visible for inspection. In these circumstances an access panel is required for inspection.
There are two frame options for the Gas Flue Access Panel. A beaded frame type (SBF) with perforated flange to key into the surrounding membrane. This is used where the surface has yet to be skimmed or tape and jointed. Or the picture frame (PF), where the solid flange sits on the surface of the wall or ceiling. This covers the cut edge of the aperture and is used when the surface has already been finished and decorated.
Available with up to 1 hour or 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.
Available to a maximum reduction of 63 dB Rw. Testing carried out under laboratory conditions to BS EN ISO140-3: 1995 by an independent test center.
