Save time on your jobsite

With the BAUCO® paint-ready option, you no longer need to finish the door leaves of BAUCO® plus IIBAUCO® XL, and BAUCO® rondo access panels. BAUCO® paint-ready finished panels ship direct to you with a highly durable, factory-primed drywall door leaf. Skilled trades install and finish the external aluminum door frame and then simply insert the BAUCO® paint-ready leaf right before painting.

  • Fewer installation steps for drywall access panels
  • Door leaf is finished for you. All you need to do is install and finish the access panel frame in the outer wall.
  • Available for any size panel and with all types of gypsum board inlay
  • When you order BAUCO® paint-ready option for your BAUCO® plus IIBAUCO® XL, or BAUCO® rondo panels, we supply a durable, factory-primed door leaf
