The access panel consists of a welded aluminum frame and is available with 1/2″ (12.7 mm) or 5/8″ (15.9 mm) drywall inlay and two latches. Both an outer and an inner frame assembly consists of high grade aluminum which is bonded with a special welding process.
For sizes 12” x 12” (305 mm x 305 mm) and up the access panels are equipped with a safety-system to prevent accidental opening. This safety system must be reattached if the hatch is removed. The reveal of 1/16 of an inch (1.59 mm) is visible between the outer frame and door hatch. The concealed snap locks open the access panel when pressure is applied to the spring loaded latch side.
