Best Access Doors is proud to introduce to you one of our leading products, the BA-MSD. This access door has a continuous piano hinge, steel frame, and self-closing and self-locking mechanism for easy access on either side. Our medium security access panel is great for residential and commercial installations. 

The BA-MSD offers a 16-gauge cold-rolled steel frame and 20-gauge galvanneal steel door, 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 MSD doors). 

Looking to add more color to your access doors? This product is finished with a DuPont high-quality white powder coat, which can be painted right after installation is complete! For installation in vertical wall assemblies, the MSD insulated access has a strong and durable plate, which means you can rest assured that your belongings will stay safe and secure. With a double latch, look no further than our MSD access panels. For the MSD, 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 MSD fire-rated door is that it can contribute directly to a project's ability to achieve LEED certification in new construction and major renovations such as schools and commercial interiors.
