Access Panels

Out of Sight - Access Panels

SUPAWOOD access panels offer the best solution for accessing concealed services and storage areas, allowing for a neat overall finish to your project.

We offer a wide range of concealed access panels to ensure that there is one to meet your specific needs and, if not, we can also customise any of our products. Our options include:

  • Concealed ceiling access panels - these allow for easy as well as direct access to services within the ceiling cavity.
  • Concealed doors in walls - this option provides access to services or storage areas that are hidden away behind the walls.
  • Entire ceilings - an entire ceiling access option allows you to 'lift & shift' or add a rebated 'drop in tile' type system.
  • Single access panels or doors - these are totally integrated so that they completely disappear into the panels around them and giving you a seamless appearance.
  • Floating solid, slatted and perforated panels - these panels allow you to easily conceal services either above or behind them.
  • Lightweight beams - our lightweight beams can be quickly removed and the reinstalled for easy access as required.

All of the SUPAWOOD products can be easily adapted and customised to accommodate hidden access to services. Please look at the pages in the product section of the website or contact us for more information about a particular product.
