ACCESS PANELS - 9000 SERIES
9000 SERIES ACCESS PANELS SUMMARY
The PROFAB 9000 series range of hinged steel access panels provides access into sealed plasterboard or sandwich panel (demountable) wall and ceiling systems where access to mechanical and electrical
services is required.
COMPOSITION & MANUFACTURE
The welded metal frame holds a metal door tray that is hinged via fully adjustable concealed hinges and is held closed by either a push catch (PC)* or a security sealed key lock (SL). The door then opens towards the user. The door is removable if damage occurs or during installation. Panels are manufactured either as fully concealed so that after installation only a 2mm wide door line is visible (BF), or alternatively, manufactured for retrofitting where the 25mm picture frame surround is visible (PF). The PF type is also available with a modified frame for installation into 60mm sandwich panel demountable structure. A constant gap is maintained between the door and frame by the fully adjustablehinge and dome location system. Panels are supplied powder coated semi-gloss white all over as standard but can be supplied using plastic coated steel or stainless steel. Anti bacterial paint is also available as an optional extra. * Not available in 1FR construction.

APPLICATIONS & USES
All standard panels are for internal use and only in areas of normal humidity. The panel is ideal for installation in ceiling and wall linings that are constructed to achieve minimum air leakage but where access is still required, i.e. clean rooms, hospitals and food production areas.
9000/BF/PC or SL is suitable for vertical or horizontal use where the panel is being installed prior to any tape and jointing or skimcoat plastering.
9000/PF/PC or SL is suitable for vertical or horizontal use where the panel is being installed after all finishing work has been completed. The panel is factory finished semi-gloss white so needs no further decoration.
Access panel type 9000/BF/IR Size 600 x 600mm single door fitted with a chrome security key lock, supplied by Profab Access Limited.
The 9000 series is a strong, purpose made, high quality access panel designed to provide a simple, yet secure means of accessing building services, some modi cations are available with this product as Profab’s manufacturing flexibility provides for alternative materials, sizes, locks and door combinations. Discussions with Profab should take place at the earliest opportunity if specification changes are being considered.
Apertures formed in masonry and dry lined walls should be correctly formed in accordance with the wall/system manufacturer’s recommendations. The wall should adequately support the panel’s additional weight and operating forces exerted on it during installation and operation. Typical fixing details are shown on this data sheet.
Operated from the front face, the push catch (PC) requires no key and the security lock (SL) has an integral, visible chrome escutcheon to accept the key (included). (Additional keys are available from Profab).
