Why Choose BA-PFI?
Fire-code Compliant: BA-PFI is one of our most-trusted fire-rated access panels. It is specifically manufactured to add fire safety features to your building in compliance with fire safety standards. As per UL and NFPA standards, once the installation is complete and the provided springs are hooked to the back of the panel, the door will be self-closing and self-locking.
Improved Accessibility: BA-PFI provides easy access to areas behind walls or ceilings for hassle-free maintenance while safely and securely protecting building components according to code.
LEED Certified: BA-PFI can help your business progress toward LEED (Leadership in Energy and Environmental Design) certification, which can help with tax breaks and other benefits.
Better Protection: BA-PFI protects your gas lines, electrical wiring, plumbing, heating, ventilation, and air conditioning by helping contain the fire. BA-PFI is built to withstand the heat from a fire for a certain amount of time before failing. That gives time to control and put out the fire or help people exit the building. BA-PFI has an active latch bolt that can withstand the pressure that a fire can cause. Pressure discrepancies can force non-latched doors open, allowing the fire to spread. Access doors can also have either automatic or manual latching mechanisms.
Prevention: BA-PFI helps to keep air from passing through that can feed a fire. It also helps to prevent smoke from spreading.
