Product Description

Recessed Access Door with Mud in Flange

Introducing, the industry leading RAD-DF Recessed Access Door With Mud In Flange, from Best Access Doors.

This access door is both practical and ascetically pleasing thanks to it’s continuous piano hinge, steel frame, and self-closing and self-locking mechanism for easy access on either side.

Contractors across North America prefer the RAD-DF because of its easy access to electrical, HVAC, plumbing, and other fixtures inside your fire rated walls or ceilings.

Our recessed access door with drywall is designed to be covered by drywall compound which can then have it customized to blend in with its surrounding wall and ceiling space. 

The RAD-DF offers a 16-gauge cold rolled steel frame and 20-gauge galvanized steel door, with 5/8” recession.  

Looking to add more color to your access doors? Contractors really enjoy the DuPont high quality white powder coat finish, which is ready to be painted once installation is complete!

Another reason why construction companies continue to proudly use Best Access Doors, is we offer a wide variety of custom latch options. For the RAD-DF, the door comes standard with a ring/tool key operated slam latch, and can also be equipped with a key operated cylinder cam latch, 4” handle operated slam latch, hex head slam latch, and mortise slam latch. 

In addition to customizing the latch, we also offer the popular finish of #304 stainless steel.
