Best Access Doors always makes sure to provide you with the best quality products for your easy access needs. One of our best products is the BA-FRI-P. 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. The BA-FRI-PF will provide you with 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 FRI-PF 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-PF doors). This access door is finished with the DuPont high-quality white powder coat finish, which you can paint right after installation is complete.

The FRI-PF 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.

You can also choose from different variety of latches. The FRI-PF 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-PF 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.
