From metal access doors by Shoemaker to a wide variety of parts and accessories to ensure proper installation and maintenance, we are certain to carry everything you need to get your HVAC system in top condition. If you are uncertain how to go about purchasing your drywall access doors, use the following as a guide.
These HVAC accessories offer many uses but are most often used to provide slick, discreet entrances into service areas or concealed equipment—such as grill storage or AC repair areas. If necessary, you will want to consider a fire rated access door. Your doors should be easy to open and designed to take a beating, as the equipment it is covering is in areas of high risk. In other words, you want your access door to be strong and unnoticeable. Access panels, on the other hand, are very similar, though can be removable/flush with an adjoining service. These are used as access to slightly underused areas/equipment that you won’t need access to very often and should only be purchased if you are in need of true discreetness.
Your choice depends on a variety of factors. For example, many built-in grilles use access doors to conceal the underside, which will often contain propane or oft-used tools. In this case, you would want to take into account the color—most want to match the grille they have—and the fire- or heat-resistance of the door. Other aspects you should look at when choosing your access door are as follows:
Regardless of what brand of stainless steel access door you end up choosing, make sure you use these factors as a guide.
As we mentioned before, access panels are also a choice for concealing repair or crawl spaces, and many might be tempted to purchase these instead. However, Access Panels are—for the most part—much smaller and less accessible than your typical HVAC access door. With that in mind, remember this; if you are planning on accessing the area which your panel or door will be concealing on a regular basis, we recommend purchasing doors. It will save you time, and it is very much worth the extra cost you will be spending.
