BA-FRN-DF Fire-Rated Access Panel Uninsulated with Mud In Flange  

Fire-rated access solutions are essential for building safety, utility protection, and compliance with fire safety regulations. Fire codes mandate specific features to minimize fire risks and ensure safe egress during fires. Non-compliant access panels can create gaps, allowing flames and smoke to spread.

It also offers security options with upgradeable locks like mortise deadbolts and cylinder cam locks. Made from 16-gauge cold-rolled steel, it provides a practical solution for construction projects requiring fire safety compliance and easy access to utility lines.
