Standard BS476 Part 22
We test to both the British and European Standards. Both standards are currently still applicable for the UK market. The European test has a far higher insulation requirement and should be used where there is any danger of fire being spread by heat radiating through the panel.
BS Fire Rated Access Panels provide fire rated protected openings in ceilings and walls for access to building engineering services.
Available fire rated up to 2 hours, the doors are finished in powder coated white and can be over painted to blend with the surrounding surface. The larger panels have full length piano hinges with the smaller panels using unique pivot hinges.
The Fire Rated Access Panel is a high quality robust solution suitable for everyday use and fitted with the ‘SLIK’ Invisible Keyhole giving your client all the discrete advantages possible with an access panel. The fire rating does not affect the appearance of the panel and the unique design enables panels to be fire rated without using heavyweight layers of plasterboard which can effect operation.
Fire tested for 2 hours to BS476 Part 22.
