Value Metal Access Panels provide very low-cost metal-faced protected openings in ceilings and walls for access to building engineering services where space is at a premium. The narrow 28mm profile produces a lightweight, robust solution that can be used in all types of wall or ceiling construction.
Outwardly the panels resemble the Contract and Premium ranges and consist of a pivoting door tray and frame with square drive operated lock finished in powder-coated white which can be over-painted on-site with emulsion to blend with the surrounding surface.
There are two frame options for the Value Metal Access Panels; 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.
