Profab Access “sets standard for fire certification and compliance” with PRIMA 1000 Series

14 March 2022

PROFAB ACCESS – the designer and manufacturer of access solutions and riser doors for ceilings, walls and partitions – is supporting architects, specifiers and contractors to achieve the highest standards of efficiency with the launch of its PRIMA 1000 Series of fire-rated access panels.

Providing secure and unobtrusive access to ceiling and wall services for both residential and commercial projects, the fire-rated panels are not only aesthetically pleasing and easy to install, but also ensure compliance with the latest Building Regulations.

As part of Profab Access’ commitment to construction excellence, the access panels are independently bi-directionally tested and fire-rated up to 120 minutes to BS EN 1634-1:2000 for single and double-door configurations of up to 600 mm x 1,200 mm. Sizes up to 750 mm x 1,500 mm are also available and fire-rated for up to 90 minutes.

The PRIMA 1000 Series access panels are available in standard and bespoke specifications, providing first-class performance and functionality. The panels are also sealed with an intumescent and smoke seal gasket.

The lightweight metal doors can be easily installed into jointless plaster, plasterboard and partitions to provide concealed access to M&E services and are etch-primed to support on-site decoration.

Compliance and performance

Marcus Parnham, commercial director at Profab Access, said: “As one of the industry’s foremost manufacturers and the first to bi-directionally test its access panels and riser doors, we’re committed to ensuring we provide construction professionals with the highest standards of compliance and performance. Our PRIMA 1000 Series access panels have been expertly designed to provide unrivalled certification. Without compromising on visual appeal or functionality, they’re designed to meet the most demanding site requirements.” 

As a member of the official Made in Britain accreditation, Profab Access can deliver stock sizes in the shortest lead times from its UK headquarters. Its team of engineering experts can also design bespoke specifications in order to meet specific project requirements.
