Product Description

Fire Rated Access Panel Non-Insulated with Mud In Flange

This access door is both practical and ascetically pleasing thanks to its continuous piano hinge, steel frame, and self-closing and self-locking mechanism for easy access on either side.

Contractors across North America prefer the BA-FRN-DF because of its easy access to electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and other fixtures inside your fire rated walls or ceilings.

Our fire rated insulated access panels allow quick access through fire rated walls and ceilings, which is typically required by code.

The BA-FRN-DF offers a 16-gauge cold rolled steel frame and 20-gauge galvanneal steel door, 2-inch mineral wool for fire rated insulation, a continuous piano hinge, an inside panel release standard on all doors over 12” x 12”. As an added benefit, this access door also provides an easy to operate automatic panel closer (which is standard on all FRN-DF doors). 

Looking to add more color to your access doors? Contractors really enjoy the DuPont high quality white powder coat finish, which can be painted right after installation is complete!

For installation in vertical wall assemblies, the FRN-DF insulated access door has a fire rating up to 3 hours. Whereas, for installation in horizontal ceilings, the fire rating measures up to 3 hours in noncombustible construction and 1-hour fire rating in combustible construction.

Another reason construction companies continue to proudly choose Best Access Doors, is we offer a wide variety of custom latch options. For the FRI-SS, the door comes standard with a ring/tool key operated slam latch, and can also be equipped with a key operated cylinder cam latch, 4” handle operated slam latch, hex head slam latch, and mortise slam latch. 

In addition to customizing the latch, we also offer the popular finish of #304 stainless steel.

Our fire rated access panels are made of high-quality materials and meet NFPA standards. Another benefit of installing our FRN-DF fire rated door is that it can contribute directly to a project's ability to achieve LEED certification in new construction and major renovations such as, schools, and commercial interiors.

Lastly, we take pride in giving you a wide variety of shipping options directly to your job site. Need a custom size? We can manufacturer and ship in as little as 5 days!
