Access panels, are used for hiding and protecting building services such as pipes, cables, ducts, flues and valves. Offering fast access for inspection and maintenance without any mess or disruption. A typical access panel comprises a frame and a hinged door with a lock to secure the door. The structure of all access panels will be made from either plastic or metal (steel). Access panels are also sometimes referred to as access hatches.
There are some cases where it’s a legal obligation to fit access panels. One example is for the inspection of hidden gas boiler flues which need to be inspected to check for leaks. Beyond this access panels are used to conceal building services, for protection and sometimes purely for aesthetic reasons.
Access panels are designed to open quickly, the vast majority are supplied with a key operated lock. To open, turn the key and pull the door towards you. The two exceptions to this are plastic access panels or touch latch access panels which are simply press to release the door catch. Locking options are described in more detail in individual product descriptions.
This range covers all bases from standard size panels, suitable for both wall and ceiling use through to bespoke sizes and Riser Doors, as well as fire rated from both sides (Duplex). View all fire rated access panels.
Sometimes the easiest questions are the hardest to answer. In most cases building regulations or building specifications will confirm whether fire rated products are required. In addition they will also list details about the individual product specifications, such as duration and direction of fire test. There are numerous factors in deciding whether a fire rated access panel is required including building type and designated use. If you are unsure whether you need a fire rated access panel, you can either check with your local building control or refer to the building specification.
Typically plastic or metal but also including specialist panels such as tile door access panels. This is a broad category so use the filters at the top of the page to help narrow down the selection.
