Use this 3 part SimpleSpecs™ master specification to specify hinged steel access doors and panels for interior and exterior locations.  Stainless steel and aluminum doors are not included in this section.

If you’re looking for hinged steel access doors and panels, look no further! This 3-part SimpleSpecs™ master specification will help you specify the right product for your project.

Hinged steel access doors and panels are available in a range of styles and sizes to provide convenient access to concealed components that require routine maintenance, such as valves.

This specification covers access doors used in interior or exterior locations.  Special fire-rated doors are available with automatic closers for use in fire-rated assemblies to meet UL 10.

When it comes to exterior doors and doors in damp locations, you’ll want to ensure that you’re using aluminum, galvanized steel, or stainless steel. These materials are highly resistant to corrosion and will last longer than other options.

Exterior doors are insulated and pre-installed with a gasket to minimize water infiltration and are lockable.
