The good, the bad and the ugly: Access Panels

(And how to create almost invisible ones!)

Access ceiling panels should be difficult to spot – but the bad ones catch everyone’s eye!

Between lighting, vents, alarms, sprinkler and sound systems; ceilings need to be accessible for ongoing maintenance and inspections – making access panels essential.

We’ve all looked up and seen large clunky frames built into the ceiling, but it doesn’t need to be this way….

That’s why we love Vogl Access Panels.

They offer unbeatable performance for easy access (that are almost invisible!). Which blends flawlessly with Vogl’s Seamless Acoustic Plasterboard Ceilings: VoglFuge.

Vogl Access Panel hatches match the perforation pattern you have installed on your ceiling. Whether it’s circular, square or slotted perforations – the continuous pattern will give you the seamless look you’re after across the ceiling.

Borders can be easily made if desired by using Vogl Frieze Tape – this can be used to cover the perforations so you can achieve your required look.

The benefits of Vogl Access Panels:

  • – High quality aluminium frame that’s sturdy and stable
  • – Large range of perforated patterns
  • – Perforations perfectly line up with the ceiling (No complex panel alignment required!)
  • – Easy and convenient opening and closing mechanism
  • – Acoustic performance due to factory applied acoustic fleece
  • – Secure locking mechanism prevents the panel from dropping accidently while being opened
  • – Easy to install (View our installation guide here)
  • – Customisation available
  • – Available in 600 x 600 – the perfect size
