ABOUT GFRG ACCESS PANELS
Typically found in Division 08, Access Doors can be made from metal, plastic, or GFRG (see comparison here).
GFRG panels are made using reinforced gypsum, which is a nearly identical material to sheetrock itself. That’s why drywall is often referred to as gypsum board in architectural specifications. The difference is that GFRG uses glass fibers to strengthen and reinforce the gysum, creating a much stronger version of gypsum that behaves the same way.
The biggest benefit to GFRG panels is how invisible they look when installed into drywall. They have no flange and just a minimal joint, allowing for a seamless blend into sheetrock. Gravity fit (Lift & shift) panels are mainly used on ceilings while hinged panels are used in both walls and ceilings. The stealth factor of these panels makes them the number one choice by architects and designers for commercial and residential design specifications.
Installs in ceilings or walls, with standard drywall compound. Hinged panels are used for wall applications.
