    All of our Access Panels are dual purpose, this means they can be used in both a wall and ceiling system. If ordering a Fire Rated Access Panel, we recommend checking the fire rating integrity in a wall and ceiling separately. (Some panels are 2hr fire rated in a wall and only 1hr fire rated in a ceiling – This should be stated clearly on the product).  

    Picture frames are 25mm frames around an Access Panel and the frame will be visible when installed therefore, you do not have to worry about how neat the hole is. The beaded frame allows you to plaster over it, so only the door is visible (and not the frame).
