Multi Layer Drywall Installation

The BAUCO® plus II access panel can be installed in a wall or ceiling where there are multiple layers of drywall. In this application the installer will need to recess the panel to the finishing layer by removing an 1 1/4" (31.75 mm) past the cut opening from the extra layers of drywall allowing the access panel frame to mount to the finishing layer. Please take a look at our double layer submittal drawing for details.

Hinge Location

BAUCO® plus II panels for ceiling installation will be hinged on the longest side unless specified. When BAUCO® plus II panels are used in a wall installation, the hinges must be located on the floor side. The last 2 digits of the product code will always be the hinge location, and always the horizontal measurement for a wall installation.

Hinge location examples:
