Anti-ligature Access Panels provide high-quality openings in walls for access to building engineering services. Our 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.
Anti-ligature Access Panels are fitted with a sealed Radial Pin Tumbler lock (RPT) with no opportunity for a ligature point, furthermore, there are no holes or openings in any part of the panel which would provide an opportunity for a ligature point.
Notably, the Anti-ligature Access Panel is specified with insulation, fire rating, acoustic reduction and an alternative higher security locking mechanism.
There are two frame options for the anti-ligature 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. As a result, this can be used in lower-risk environments. Or the picture frame (PF), where a reduced flange sits on the surface of the wall. This covers the cut edge of the aperture and is used when the surface has already been finished and decorated.
