You will surely trust Best Access Doors as your partner when looking for quality access doors. Like the BA-FRN-DF, all access doors are manufactured to provide you with the best quality and efficient products. 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. It has easy access to electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and other fixtures inside your fire-rated walls or ceilings. Our fire-rated insulated access panels allow quick access through fire-rated walls and ceilings, typically required by code. The BA-FRN-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 FRN-DF doors). It is finished with DuPont's high-quality white powder coat finish, painted right after installation is complete. The FRN-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. We also offer different latch options for the FRI-SS. 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. 

. Another benefit of installing our FRN-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.
