Why Choose 8” x 8” BA-FRI?
Compliance: BA-FRI is one of our most-trusted fire-rated fire-safety standard-compliant access panels that add fire-safety features to your building. In cases of a fire outbreak, the BA-FRI protects your gas lines, electrical wiring, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning by helping contain the fire for a specific period.
Installation: It provides quick and easy installation on fire-rated walls and ceilings for hassle-free maintenance.
Durability: Its solid steel construction adds sturdiness and durability to the access doors to protect building components safely and securely. The access door's 16-gauge cold rolled steel frame, and a 20-gauge galvannealed steel door with 2 inches of mineral wool for insulation make it sturdier than other access doors and panels.
Security: It has a slam latch, continuous piano hinge, inside panel release, and a DuPont high-quality white powder coat finish that you can paint to blend with your wall and interior design. Moreover, the BA-FRI fire-rated access panel has a one-inch flange for a quick flush installation on any surface. It is excellent for industrial, commercial, or residential projects.
