ACCESS PANELS - 6000 SERIES
6000 SERIES ACCESS PANELS SUMMARY
The PROFAB 6000 series range of steel lockable access panels provides access into jointless plaster/plasterboard ceilings, where access to mechanical and electrical services is required
COMPOSITION & MANUFACTURE
The metal frame holds a flush metal faced door (MD) or a plasterboard lined (PD) door through a bayonet lock retaining system. The bayonet lock retaining system allows the door to be removed during installation or if damage occurs. Panel frames are manufactured either as fully concealed (BF) or alternatively, manufactured for retrofitting where the 25mm picture frame is visible (PF). Panels with simulated drywall beaded frames (BF) are supplied powder coated white primer all over as standard for decoration on site to match the adjacent finish. Panels with visible picture frame (PF) are supplied powder coated semi-gloss white as standard.

Access panel type 6000/BF Size 600mm diameter single door unit supplied by Profab Access Ltd.
The 6000 series is an entry-level access panel designed to provide a simple, economic means of accessing building services, so only limited modificatiuons 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.
Apertures formed in dry lined ceilings should be adequately supported to take the additional weight and operating forces exerted during operation. Typical fixing details are shown on this data sheet.
The panel is fitted with a concealed bayonet retaining mechanism operated by rotating the door within the frame.
Available through a network of distributors. Refer to Profab for guidance.
