Both panels and hatches are common and essential elements used for carrying out daily maintenance in buildings and routine inspection of most M&E services within building compartnents. Depending on the location, some of there will require small openings, typically while some areas may require larger apertures.

Promat panels and hatches are approved in a range of sizes and fire resistance, offering flexibility for any type of opening in substrates such as walls, floors or ceilings. They are assy to install and can be finished or decorated to suit the surrounding elements. The types of fixing for these panels and hatches largely depends on the area of application, frequency of carring out maintenance, appearance and the weight of the panels/hatches.

Common in most applications, hinged hatches are usually prefabricated in a standard size of 600mm x 600mm. They can also be custom made to specified dimensions, depending on size and quantity. Safety chains are fitted to all panels exceeding 450mm x 450mm in size. Preformed holes in all four sides of the frame are positioned to match metal structures of the ceiling or wall for secure screw fixing.
Screw fixed panels can be fabricated in situ and offer ideal flexibility when used in conjuction with Promat partitions or ceilings.

All panels and hatches must have a fire resistance level at least equal to the surrounding building elements and/or constructions. These can be suspended ceilings, concrete/masonry floors or walls, lightweight partitions etc. Care should be taken to ensure any gaps between the panel/hatch and the aperture are thoroughly sealed to prevent hot or cold smoke ingress from natural building or thermal movement.
