          Q:I note this item appears to have a swing opening to the left. Do you make both left and right swing doors on the panel? It would work best if the door swung open the other way for my situation.

          1 Answer
          Answer This Question

          A:  There is no specific handing to install the door. If you prefer the door to swing right, there would be no issue with installing it to do so.

            Poorly built and unsuitable for visible location
            The frame was square, the dimensions were accurate, and the metal was sufficiently heavy. Everything else was junk. The door is warped and doesn't fit uniformly in the opening. The large gap at the hinge is unsightly and unnecessary. The edges are rough and sharp. The primer is patchy, marred, and thin in places. And there's a big scratch on the front that will telegraph through any new primer or paint. Returning this product and trying a completely different brand.

              Solid metal access door if you can frame in the opening. This door is well made of metal which is preferable vs plastic, but it does make it heavier. You really can't mount this into drywall. You need 2x4s or some other kind of framing behind the drywall to support/secure the door. I was applying a large section of new drywall so it was no issue for me. I installed 2x4 supports left and right. The rough opening needs to be 16.5"x16.5" and then the door opening is 16x16. One problem I encountered with this door is that the flange is not very deep. With new/modern sheet rock which is thin it's no issue, but I installed in another location over some older thicker sheet rock and the mounting holes barely covered the wood supports. I had to buy a set of 2" metal ties to extend the mounting depth. In the end the door worked but not as smoothly as I had hoped. Also the door is on a hing that allows the door to slide down, this mean you have to lift the door to close it. Not a big deal for an occasional use door but not idea for an access hatch you plan to use regularly.

              Exactly what I needed for easy access for the shower plumbing hardwares. No more cutting through the drywall and replacing hardwares and drywall. Very good product.
