Acoustic & Smoke Rated

Many of our ranges have been tested please see the Product Features area in each category.

Acoustically tested access panels provide protected openings in ceilings and walls for access to building engineering services where sound reduction is required. Acoustically tested by an independent laboratory from 20 to 63 dB Rw depending on the specification.

Finished in powder coated white which can be over painted to blend with the surrounding surface, larger panels have full length piano hinges with the smaller panels using unique pivot hinges. The Acoustic Rated Access Panel is a high quality robust solution suitable for everyday use with the discreet advantages your client demands of an access panel.

The acoustic rating does not affect the appearance of the panel, the unique design enables panels to be acoustically rated using a variety of sound deadening materials and seals fitted into the back of the door tray.

Smoke and pressure testing is a critical requirement for an FDS smoke door and air leakage is a major contributing factor to the occurrence of condensation in attics from badly sealed loft hatches.

These doors are made to order, please contact our sales team for advice.
