How to Install the BA-DW-5040

How to Install the BA-DW-5040

As long as you have the right tools, the BA-DW-5040's application procedure is surprisingly easy. Here's what you need:

  • Pencil or Marker
  • L square
  • Drywall saw
  • Rotary cut-out kit
  • Paintbrush
  • Sandpaper
  • Electric Screwdriver

STEP 1: Measure the frame, identify the location and mark the desired opening

Measuring the door frame is one of the first things you need to do when installing BA-DW-5040. Once you take note of its height and width, you can take out your pencil or any marking tools to help you draw out the access doors' entry point. Prepare your L square as well, as it will aid you greatly in creating a perfect line following the suggested opening measurement.

Remember to draw your opening 3/8 inches larger than the door size. At the same time, you must keep a minimum clearance of 1/2 inch from each surrounding stud. Accurate measurement and marking are significant in creating an impressive panel square opening.

STEP 2: Cut and smoothen the frame opening

You must follow the traced line and carefully trim the excess drywall with a drywall saw or a rotary cut-out kit and set it aside. Afterward, you can sand the uneven edges using sandpaper to ensure everything else is smooth and neatly fits.

STEP 3: Install the frame and the door panel precisely

Before you proceed with the installation, you must double-check that the door frame and panel's accurate measurement fits first, ensuring no awkward gap or similar issues. Once all's well, you can attach the bracket behind the drywall wall or ceiling opening and pull it firmly back.

Remember to position the concealed pin hinge area on the top-left corner of the entry point. Bring out the self-tapping screws included in your purchase and utilize an electric screwdriver, if available, for a more seamless application.

Drive the screws through the drywall into the frame every four inches to securely attach the panel afterward. Optionally, you can also cover the screw ends with caps.

STEP 4: Hide imperfections and match surroundings

After installation, it's now time to make the flush access door visually appealing to every visitor's eyes. Get a drywall compound, apply it directly around the perimeter, and wait for it to dry.

Once dry, it would help if you sand smooth every nook and cranny and coat its ready-to-paint door leaf to match the color of its environment.

The BA-DW-5040 is a robust panel companion for every commercial project as it answers various construction concerns - from durability, security, and aesthetics. Ensure neat and safe storage for your critical building components.
