We are proud to introduce the FRI-DF Fire Rated Access Panel Insulated with Mud in Flange from Best Access Doors. This access door is both practical and ascetically pleasing thanks to its continuous piano hinge, steel frame, and self-closing and self-locking mechanism for easy access on either side.
Our fire-rated insulated access panels allow quick access through fire-rated walls and ceilings, which is typically required by code.
The FRI-DF offers a 16-gauge cold-rolled steel frame and 20-gauge galvanneal steel door, 2-inch mineral wool for fire-rated insulation, a continuous piano hinge, an inside panel release standard on all doors over 12" x 12". As an added benefit, this access door also provides an easy to operate automatic panel closer (which is standard on all FRI-DF doors).
If you want to add more color to your access door, it is finished with a DuPont high-quality white powder coat, ready to be painted right after the installation. For installation in vertical wall assemblies, the FRI-DF insulated access door has a fire rating of up to 3 hours. Whereas, for installation in horizontal ceilings, the fire rating measures up to 3 hours in noncombustible construction and a 1-hour fire rating incombustible construction.
Another reason construction companies continue to use Best Access Doors proudly is we offer a wide variety of custom latch options. For the FRI-DF, the door comes standard with a ring/tool key operated slam latch and can also be equipped with a key-operated cylinder cam latch, 4" handle operated slam latch, hex head slam latch, and mortise slam latch.
In addition to customizing the latch, we also offer the popular finish of #304 stainless steel.
Our fire-rated access panels are made of high-quality materials and meet NFPA standards. Another benefit of installing our FRI-DF fire-rated door is that it can contribute directly to a project's ability to achieve LEED certification in new construction and significant renovations such as schools and commercial interiors.
