Home > Companies > Profab Access Ltd > 1000TD Series Access Panel

The 1000TD series range of steel access panels provides access into tiled jointless plaster/ plasterboard walls, where access to mechanical and electrical services is required.

The metal frame holds a plasterboard faced door through a pivot hinge system. The door is held closed with either a concealed push catch (PC) or with a concealed budget lock (BL) which opens towards the user. The pivot hinge system allows the door to be removed during installation. Panels are tiled to match the surrounding tile module. A constant 2 mm gap is maintained between the door and frame by the dome location system.

Suitable for use internally and vertical use where the panel is being installed prior to any ceramic tiling being completed.

Customization of the access panel may be possible including alterative sizes, lock and paint colours, consult manufacturer for details.
