APPLICATIONS & USES
The 2000 series ‘Handi-Access’ can be used in a multitude of situations where access to valves, plumbing and switches etc, requires simple un-hindered access without the need for security. It is ideally suited to domestic/residential situations, either as a new-build or retro-fit following remedial work.
Access panel type 2000 series ‘Handi-Access’. Size 200 x 200mm manufactured from white high-impact styrene plastic. Supplied by Profab Access Limited.
The 2000 series access panel range is designed to provide a simple, economic means of accessing building services. No other options are available in this range. However, Profab do manufacture a wide range of metal access panels. Their manufacturing flexibility provides for bespoke designs, alternative sizes, locks and paint colours. Discussions with Profab should take place at the earliest opportunity when specifications are being considered.
Correct sized apertures can be roughly cut through the ceiling or wall membrane. Dust and debris should be cleared from the surfaces before the panel is bonded in position using a silicone adhesive. Due to the lightweight nature of the panel, most membranes will support the panel weight without any further support. Typical fixing details are shown on this data sheet.
The panel is a snap-shut friction-fit design that keeps the door closed in its frame. Simple opening using a flat-head screwdriver inserted into the small notches along the door edge, then gently levering the door open.
Available through a network of distributors. Refer to Profab for guidance.
