While working with new clients, some might ask: Should I install an access panel? What would you say; yes, or no?
The right answer is almost always yes.
What makes an access panel a necessity for your next project?
An access panel offers many benefits, and we'll look at three of those while installing an access panel, and why you should consider it for your next project.
An extra layer of wall – with access
Installing an access panel can actually act as another layer of wall, regardless of the type of material. From insulated to uninsulated, flush or aluminum – installing an access door can add an extra layer to a specific spot on the wall. Though it would seem to add an extra layer, access panels provide the ability to store, organize and insulate that particular spot.
So often we think having an over-sized square or gap in the wall is necessary to be able to organize or access wires behind the foundation; however, a simple solution would be the installation of an access door. Something like an HVAC all purpose door can make accessing the system easy and simple.
Organization and Compartmentalization
From plumbing units to HVAC’s installing an access panel is now not only required under many building codes, but imagine the simplicity of having these units and areas easily accessible and organized. HVAC’s can sometimes get intricate and complicated. From wiring to piping, sometimes having an access panel or door that will indicate its location and path can simplify things. Not to mention, installing an access panel where there is the potential for noise pollution form the whirring machines can actually be reduced thanks to an access panel; specifically, one that is insulated. On top of acting as a way of organizing and compartmentalizing certain features of the home, it is a great way to make something operational visually appealing.
By deciding to install an access panel or door you are not only choosing quality, you are choosing a better design. How so? The installation of an access panel actually replaces those visually unappealing wires or ducts that you need access to.
With an access door, whether it is your floor, wall, or ceiling, there are such variants that they are aesthetically appealing. You have the ability to select the material from which they are made; you are able to choose the finish, as well. An added perk is that you can choose whether or not you want it insulated. The options are endless for finding the perfect access panel to meet your building needs.
When installing an access panel or any type of insulation, you will profit in the long run. From energy bills to installing a quality access door that will meet your proper needs, purchasing an access door will result in long-term savings.
Insulated access panels help reduce heating and cooling costs, as they will maintain the temperate of your space. When you choose to install an access door over a panel, you are choosing to select a long-term and viable option.
Make a lifetime investment
When you decide to purchase and install an access panel, you are choosing to make a smart investment into your home and business. Initially, it may seem daunting to pay for a solution some may see as temporary, but when you make an informed decision and understand your needs, the price tag becomes irrelevant.
In large commercial and industrial projects, the installation of an access door is done to meet both building codes and regulations; but more importantly, they are done because of the benefits that come from them. In some instances, a simple decision to have an access door can save lives – as it has been proven time and time again that the use of a fireproof access panel or even the consideration of such an access can prevent from the spread of fires.
One of the best things about an access panel or door is that if you choose to install down the road, you can do it easily and simply. Big or small, it is never too late to turn your wall into one equipped with an access panel.
Looking to do a minor upgrade or renovation? You can work with existing insulation or start from scratch – and given that insulation can come in various forms, this means that there is flexibility in where insulation can be installed.
