Description

The PFI-PLY is the ideal solution for plaster covered fire rated walls and ceilings. Once covered with plaster, the 2 3/4’’ lath flange will disappear leaving only the door panel visible. As per UL standards, once the installation is complete and the provided springs are hooked to the back of the panel, this access door will be self closing and self locking. The largest fire rated PFI-PLY access doors available for vertical and horizontal installations are respectively: (48’’ x 48’’) and (24’’ x 36’’ or 864 sq inches).
