Hotel Construction & Renovation

(Developers, Managers, Designers)

Bauco has been providing access panel solutions to hotels, restaurants and other hospitality projects for over 15 years, because our products address many concerns that arise in hotel environments. Designed especially for gypsum wallboard applications, bauco models combine European design principles with North American construction standards.

For both new construction and renovation, our technical and customer service representatives will work with you to meet site-specific conditions, logistics, and project schedules. Be it a single 4 foot by 8 foot custom opening in your ballroom (Ritz-Carlton, New Orleans) or two-thousand 1 foot by 1 foot hand access openings in your bathroom ceiling (Wynn, Las Vegas), we can design, price, and supply on time and budget worldwide.

Access Panels in Custom Sizes

Our nearly invisible panels can easily be customized to create service openings to fit almost any equipment size. Minimize the loss of room days due to equipment replacement by installing properly sized access openings, which allow full access to HVAC equipment. By properly sizing filter access openings in guestroom walls and ceilings, service technicians can easily reach filters and shutoffs. In the past, ugly or improvised access covers often had to be located in closets, and room-service had to remove guests’ clothing to allow service entry.

Sound Transmission

BAUCO® plus IIBAUCO® rondo, and BAUCO® plus access doors are equipped with air-tight gaskets, while the mass of the gypsum board inlay ensures the same low vibration coefficient as the surrounding building membrane. In special cases (e.g. nightclub ceiling), additional sound dampening measures can be added to the panels.

Retrofitting for WiFi

Our access panels can be installed into the ceiling membrane without additional framing, and are great for retrofitting WiFi routers in public areas. Cut a hole into the gypsum board surface and the frame integrates with the board.

Air Return Grilles

BAUCO® air grilles can be integrated with a number of our access panel models. The advantage is that clean access openings can be sized to allow equipment replacement, while the air return grille or louver does not require a separate opening, thereby minimizing disruption to guest room finishes. Louvers are fitted into the door to be frameless and flush with the surface.

Security Options

In addition to concealed push-to-open touch latches, all our access panel models can be fitted with keyed cabinet locks or even with IC core preparations to receive your cylinders.

Finishing Options For Access Panels

With picture frame finishes and concealed hardware, BAUCO® plus IIBAUCO® rondo, and BAUCO® plus panels minimize the disruption of surface finishes in both guest rooms and public areas. Wall-coverings, paint, millwork, and other finishes can be applied directly to the access door surface.

Our access panels with gypsum board inlays are installed flush with the surface and the door panel itself can receive the same surface finishes specified for the entire wall or ceiling. The hinges are laid out to allow for surface treatment thickness of up to 1 ¾”. Tile, millwork, wall coverings, stucco, etc. Be our guest!
