2. Beaded Frame

Beaded Frame

Access panels with a beaded frame provide an area where a plasterer can adhere plaster up to the edge of the door, resulting in an access panel with a concealed frame and metal door. Therefore, the frame will not be visible. This frame type can be found on both metal and plasterboard panels. View beaded frame access panels. 

3. Plasterboard Door

Plasterboard

Plasterboard access panels feature a plasterboard door and beaded frame, this allows plastering over the door and the frame, making the panel as invisible as possible. You’re able to paint over the door and after installation you will not see the frame. View plasterboard access panels.
