I found this panel to be 22.5" wide. One option: Plan for a larger opening, but order for pick-up at Home Depot first, and then measure the panel at the store before taking it home.

Answers

Possibly if you cut the insulation on an angle at the edges. What I did was surround a square of insulation, attached to a board, both the size of the opening with some radiant barrier plastic (so no moisture can get trapped inside). Then stapled some ribbon to it to act as handles, then used the handles to pull it down snug into the framed hole that secures the panel. Now if I need to go up I open the door and push the insulation square up into the attic and when I leave just pull it back in with the straps. I wouldn't want to pull open fiberglass down towards me when I had to open it if the insulation was attached to the door...I can just imagine fibers falling into my eyes

How sealed is this door? Is there any kind of weather stripping or sealing at the door, or. Ould it be added?

Asked by RD May 7, 2019

Answers

It seals quite tightly, there is no weather stripping. It might be possible to add some very thin rubberjc, but it might keep the door from closing properly. We added some foam insulation to the inside of the door to reduce heat loss and that has worked very well.

Yes, that's what I got it for. Above it I made a "shaft" through the insulation and then made an insulated cover for the haft to maintain the insulation envelope.

The dimensions are of the frame, the flange is about 1/2" larger.

Can the door be removed if needed for larger service jobs?

Asked by April November 1, 2018
2
Answers

Yes, you can remove the door and frame rather easily. With the door open the frame is generally held in place with 2 or 3 screws on both the left and right side of the frame. The screws would have been affixed to the studs in the structural wall. If you remove these screws the frame, and door, should be easily removed.

The access panel was exactly as described. The opening in my ceiling was about 1/2 inch shorter than 30 inches long, so I had to shave off some of the drywall. However, once installed, it fit snugly. My only complaint is that there were no screws or other hardware to secure the panel to the ceiling beams but I had drywall screws in my toolbox. I would recommend this panel.

Great value
Installed this product after a attic furnace/ac replacement on a 20yr old tract home. The drywall trim around the opening had to be removed to gain a meer 1/2inch to exchange the equiepment. Exelent fit i was able to continue to use the origoinal to the house attic cover and insilation behind the access door. This.put a very professional looking finish on my project.

Strong, flat, secure access panel. The panel has five latch points which keeps it flat when closed but seems excessive for the size of the panel.
