The PROFAB 1000 Series Metal Door (MD) is designed to fit into jointless plaster / plasterboard wall / partitions and suspended ceilings systems, where access to mechanical and electrical services is required without compromising aesthetics.


The 1.2mm thick, electro-galvanised mild steel frame holds a flush 1.2mm thick, electro-galvanised mild steel flush faced door (MD) through a simple concealed pivot hinge device. The door is held closed with a concealed lock and opens towards the user. Doors are removable if damage occurs or during installation. Panels are powder coat finished all over, a constant 2mm gap is maintained between the door and frame.


Available in a range of standard sizes for next day delivery* and can also be custom manufactured in any size from 200mm x 200mm up to 600mm x 1200mm.

Standard Stocked Sizes:

  • 200mm x 200mm
  • 300mm x 300mm
  • 300mm x 600mm
  • 450mm x 450mm
  • 550mm x 550mm
  • 600mm x 600mm
  • 600mm x 900mm
  • 600mm x 1200mm


All standard panels are for internal use and only in areas of normal humidity. Suitable for vertical or horizontal use where the panel is either being installed prior to any tape and jointing or skim-coat plastering (BF) or being installed after all finishing work has been completed (PF)


Apertures formed in dry lined walls and ceilings should be formed in accordance with the manufactures recommendations and adequately supported to take the additional weight and operating forces exerted during operation. Profab recommends apertures formed in ceilings should have addition support in all four corners and at 600mm centres.


The panel is fitted with a concealed budget lock (BL) as standard, operated with a supplied square drive key through a round keyhole in the door face following removal of the white plastic cap (Additional keys and caps are available from PROFAB).


The 1000 series is an entry-level access panel designed to provide a simple, economic means of accessing building services, so only limited modifications are available with this product. However, PROFAB’S manufacturing flexibility provides for alternative sizes, locks and paint colours. Discussions with PROFAB should take place at the earliest opportunity if specification changes are being considered.
