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.

Its a nice access panel. The only problem that I had was the hole in the wall which was 16x16 but the access door inside lips were at 16 1/4-3/8 so I had to make the opening bigger. I've used more access panels and the opening in the wall It's usually the size of the panel you get ( 16x16 panel sould fit in a 16x16 opening in the wall )
