Fitting Instructions for APD.WD.PB.BF/FR120.AT.30dB
Make sure the structural opening is at least 7mm larger than the back of frame size. EG. a 600 x 600mm panel size requires a 607 x 607mm hole size. Remove the door from the frame and place the frame into the set hole. Fix through the appropriate fixing holes within the frame ensuring the frame is pushed up against the structural opening surround. Check the frame is square by measuring corner to corner. Refit door and lock in place; the door and frame should be flush. Independent bracing or support may be required to take the weight of the access panel. (Please note: It is important that prior to applying the plaster skim coat, a joint filler and 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.
