BA-AW-APS Flood/Gas/Odor Resistant Diamond Plate Floor Door
What is a flood-tight access panel? Flood-tight floor access doors are used for interior and exterior applications where water may rise above the surface opening. The BA-AW-APS Flood/Gas/Odor Resistant Diamond Plate Floor Door from Best Access Doors is the perfect choice for interior and exterior applications requiring a flood-tight, gas-tight, and odor-resistant solution. With angle frame construction, this flood-tight floor panel with a 3/8" aluminum frame with 3/16" x 1 1/2" strap anchors welded around the frame is designed to be cast-in-concrete. The ¼” aluminum diamond-plate door panel is reinforced for a live load of 1560 pounds/sq. ft. (hydrostatically tested for holding up to 25 ft. head of water for up to 10 minutes – downward pressure only). The panel overlaps the frame, compressing the 9/16” O.D. x 1/8” I.D. EPDM gasket. It has watertight cam locks and a flush, watertight handle, ensuring the door will not leak from standing water, reducing the escape of gas and odor, for a flood/gastight fit. With type 316 stainless steel hinges and hardware BA-AW-APS is corrosion-resistant and includes stainless steel but hinges and tamperproof nuts and bolts.
The automatic hold-open arm with red vinyl grip allows the BA-AW-APS floor door to open to 90 degrees, locking the door in the open position and allowing for easy control when closing the door panel.
