The Fire Rated Access Panel- Beaded Frame is designed primarily for uses in dry lined ceiling or wall structures which serve fire protection or separation purposes. The beaded frames are generally fitted at first fix prior to plaster boarding and decoration to create a clean finish and unobtrusive finish.
Suitable for Part J Building Regs, which specifies the provision of access hatches to allow visual inspection of concealed flue & chimney systems.
Part J Building Regulations state that access should be at least 300 x 300 mm and should not adversely affect existing fire, thermal and acoustic provisions. (See the attached PDF by NHBC above or visit the link below direct to the 2010 Part J Regs document.)
