North America's commercial construction industry requires the toughest products built to withstand the test of time. When it comes to access doors and panels, general contractors build relationships with companies that can meet their demands for quality, durability, ease of installation, customization, and value. When constructing a massive structure like a hotel, airport, skyscraper, or medical facility, having a flexible, multi-purpose product that works in various settings and applications is ideal. Some settings still require specialty doors – fire-rated to exterior access panels – but when buying in bulk and purchasing at a discount is an option, that's where our general-purpose access doors and panels come into play.
One of our most popular models – BA-AHD – is also the sturdiest access door on the market. It is suitable for many settings and is one of our most versatile products. Why not take a closer look?
What Makes BA-AHD So Special?
Our BA-AHD model is one of our most popular general-purpose access doors with flanges. Designed for quick and easy installation on walls and ceilings made of almost any type of material, our flush universal access panel with exposed flange is a multi-purpose door you'll want to keep in stock.
To start, take a minute to glance at the features of our BA-AHD Flush Universal Access Door with Exposed Flange.

Explore the BA-AHD Difference!
Accurate Dimensions: When BA-AHD is being manufactured, we take the time to measure carefully. As the saying goes, 'Measure twice and cut once!'. Having the peace of mind knowing that your product will arrive with accurate dimensions allows you to prep for installation, so once the door comes, you can just pop it into place! (This also applies to our custom size access doors).
If you're still unsure, this installation video will take out the guesswork!
Easy to Install: BA-AHD's intelligent design makes it easy to install. You can use it pretty much anywhere - horizontal drywall, non-rated vertical, and lots of other surface types. Its continuous piano hinge and 16-gauge cold steel frame make it one of the most durable panel doors available in the industry. Compared to other flat panels, it also reduces sagging and needs fewer locks, making it hassle-free!
Easy to Use: Once BA-AHD is installed, it doesn't require rocket science to operate – it comes with a no-brainer locking system. This makes it great for conducting regular maintenance in secure areas for commercial buildings – you can also use it in residential settings!
Lots of Sizes: BA-AHD comes in a full range of sizes, suitable for industrial, commercial, or residential use, and it complies with most safety and building codes (be sure to check the specifics in your area!).
Many Uses – Many Settings: Whether you're a plumber wanting convenience when conducting maintenance, or you're an electrician looking for a way to hide away unsightly wires, BA-AHD is the right door for the job! You can install this door almost anywhere – it's great for new construction, major renovations, and in a variety of settings ranging from hotels to airports.
Economical: Being so flexible, BA-AHD is a perfect access door to stock up on. Remember, when you buy in bulk, discounts may apply, making this a great economical, rugged alternative to more specialized, high-cost access doors on the market.
Durable: Built from cold-rolled steel, BA-AHD is the sturdiest door on the market, supporting the longevity of your commercial structure. It resists sagging as compared to flat door panels and requires fewer locks. In the words of our customers: BA-AHD "arrived promptly, was easy to install and looks professional. The gauge of the metal is substantial and feels well made."
Flush Installation: BA-AHD lays flush with the surface where it's installed so that it's hardly noticeable to passersby. This is great for aesthetic reasons and discourages unauthorized individuals from tampering with essential building components.
Environmentally friendly: When you choose BA-AHD for your new construction project, remember this: This access door is LEED V4 compliant and will contribute directly to your project's ability to achieve LEED certification. Think about this attribute for your upcoming major renovation projects, school construction, and inclusion in commercial interiors.
