The APD-WD-RF-120-MD-BF-3WL-2D-36DB is manufactured from Zintec Steel with a 1.2mm thick Door and a 1.5mm Frame. Fast Fit Hinge System
which saves time on fitting compared to a Full Piano Hinge system.
Make sure the structural opening is at least 7mm larger than the panel size. E.G a 600x600mm panel size requires a 607x607mm hole size. Remove
the door from the frame and place the frame into the set hole. Fix through the appropriate )xing holes within the fold up )xing tabs ensuring the
frame is pushed up against the structural opening surround. Check the frame is square by measuring corner to corner. Re)t door and lock in place;
the door and frame should be Cush. Independent bracing or support may be required to take the weight of the Access Panel. (Please note that it is
important that prior to applying the plaster skim coat, a joint )ller and a scrim tape is applied over the junction between the beaded frame and the
plasterboard in order to prevent cracking of the skim coat) Apply Intumescent acrylic mastic on both faces of the frame, nominally 5mm wide
sealing to the supporting construction.
