The access panel consists of a welded aluminum frame and is available with 1/2" (12.7 mm) or 5/8" (15.9 mm) in-layed drywall with a tile pattern and two standard touch latches.
Both an outer and an inner frame assembly consists of high-grade aluminum which is bonded with a special welding process. For sizes 12” x 12” (305 x 305 mm) and up the access panels are equipped with a safety system to prevent accidental opening. This safety system must be reattached if the hatch is removed. The reveal of 1/8 of an inch (3 mm) is visible between the outer frame and door hatch. The concealed snap locks open the access panel when pressure is applied to the spring-loaded latch side. This access panel is designed for tiling applications.
