What is a FlipFix Access Panel?

26th May 2023

If you’re looking to install a new access panel in your home or workplace, but don’t have much experience, then look no further than FlipFix access panels. This incredible range of easy-fit panels comes in a variety of shapes, sizes and materials, and requires no prior construction experience to install. In this article, we’ll be exploring how FlipFix access panels work and why you should choose one for your next access panel project.


FlipFix Access Panel Explained

Needing to replace or install a new access panel can be a daunting task. You might be tempted to hire a contractor to install one, especially if you have no prior knowledge of access panels. That means you’ll be spending more than you have to just to install a simple panel – but you don’t need to.

FlipFix access panels are designed with the consumer in mind and let you install access panels on your own through elegant design and simple instructions. They also come with a variety of security features and fire ratings to suit your specific needs.


How to Install a FlipFix Access Panel

Installing access panels has never been simpler with FlipFix. To install a FlipFix access panel, you just need to follow a few simple steps:

  1. Decide what size your access panel should be. FlipFix access panels come in a variety of sizes, but once you’ve decided, you’re only a few clicks away from ordering an access panel installable right out of the box.
  2. Once you’ve received your FlipFix box, pop out the cardboard template that comes included as part of the packaging. You can place this template around the installation area and draw around it for guidelines on where to cut into your wall. Simple! See further instructions on our individual FlipFix product pages.
  3. Next, you’ll need to cut into your wall. You’ll need to use the right tool for the job, like a jab saw, and make sure you’re not cutting into any load-bearing elements or wires – plan accordingly!
  4. Once you’ve cut your hole, insert the frame and use a drill or screwdriver to tighten the innovative FlipFix clamps, which will attach to the surface of your wall.
  5. Test out your new access panel!


Other Features of FlipFix Access Panels

FlipFix access panels are designed to fit flush against your wall, providing a clean, smooth finish that won’t stand out against your existing décor. You can order FlipFix panels in a variety of styles, like plasterboard or metal, for even greater customisation.

FlipFix panels come with a variety of security options depending on your needs. The basic lock also sits flush against the surface of the panel, giving a sleek, near-invisible look.

The main benefit of FlipFix access panels is the fact that they take so little time to install – around five times faster than traditional access panels, according to FlipFix. It’s easy for anybody to start installing access panels with these amazing and innovative designs.
