Plastic Access Panels

Over the last few months we have supplied more and more diverse products for more and more trades.So much so we have decided to offer a number of our home refurbishment customers and diy experts an item they are asking for on a regular basis .That item is what is known as an “access Panel” .This is basically a small plastic or metal door which can be fitted into a wall or ceiling to give you access to such items as stop cocks, gas and electrical boxes,rodding points and anywhere you need access to carry out small maintenance tasks.These are not on our website yet but soon will be.To begin with we will be offering just the small plastic panels which can be fitted with the minimum of effort by anyone with basic DIY skills,only requiring tools to cut a hole big enough to take the panel and some builders adhesive to fix it in place.The hole size needs to be between 2mm and 5mm bigger than the frame on the rear of the panel.The plastic panels are really only suitable for walls and not generally used in ceilings.Due to their very nature they are not fire rated and come in one colour which is an off white but suitable for painting over if required to match the surrounding decor.To begin with we are only going to be offering the most popular sizes of plastic panels but through our links to a “local” manufacturer we may be able to offer metal panels in larger sizes and with optional finishes but that is for the future.So if you wish to finish off that DIY project with a neat and efficient door then look no further Tools R Us can help !
