bauco plus 11 access panel finishing options

Finishing Options

With their concealed hardware, inlays and flush surface finishes, bauco plus II, bauco rondo, and bauco plus panels can accept a variety of surface treatments in keeping with the wall and ceiling finishes specified for the room. 

Drywall finishing for bauco plus II

Finishing and mudding of the virtually invisible access panel. Remove inner door leaf, and begin applying filler compound. It is important to press the compound firmly into any gaps around frame and fill to the height of the outer protruding frame, as this is your finished height.

Now apply compound to the inner leaf, filling it up to the raised outer edge. When ready sand and refill to desired finish. When filling and sanding is completed clean the excess filler and dust from the gasket and frame areas with a damp cloth.

Place the door leaf back into the opening attaching the safety cable. 

Paint finishes for access panels

Access panel can be primed and painted the same as the surrounding wall and ceiling area.

Tile finish for access panels

bauco plus and bauco plus II frames fasten to the substrate on which the tiles are set. The principal frame design is for either 1/2" (12.7 mm) or 5/8" (15.9 mm) thick gypsum wallboard. If the frame can be mounted to the tile-backer board you use, then the access panels will work for your application. We can provide a custom tile backer inlay with the access panel or you can install it on site, so that the tile can be set directly onto the access door leaf. Door and wall surface are automatically in the same plain. The access opening can be sized to fit the tile and grout lines or the tile can be cut to continue on the door.

The bauco softline sheet metal access panels can be installed over top of an existing tile finish. Cut the opening into the tiled surface, insert the softline door and fasten frame to backer board or structural studs. Adjustable mounting tabs on the frame can be bent to grab the wall. For further refinement, a caulking bead can be placed behind the frame flange prior to inserting.

Vinyl coverings for access panels

Veneer Plaster finish for access panels

bauco plus, bauco plus II and bauco rondo frames can be supplied with "imperial" veneer plaster backer-board (aka. blueboard). The frame protrudes by about 1/16" (1.6 mm) beyond the surface of the board and serves as a finishing trim. In general the door surface can be treated just like the surrounding wall and ceiling.

Stucco finish for access panels

bauco plus, bauco plus II and bauco rondo access panels can be covered with stucco. The principal frame design is for either 1/2" (12.7 mm) or 5/8" (15.9 mm) thick gypsum wallboard. If the frame can be mounted to the backer board you use for your stucco, then the access panels will work for your application. The critical detail with stucco lies in the protection of the edges against wear. The frame provides a 1/16" (1.6 mm) lip above the factory installed board inlays. You may want to use a 5/8" (15.9 mm) model frame with 1/2" (12.7 mm) or less board inlay to gain an extra 1/8" (3.2 mm) in trim height.
