Pacific VP120-FH Fire Rated Floor Hatch -/120/120


The Pacific VP120-FH Fire Rated Floor Hatch consists of one or two proprietary fire rated non-load bearing panels resting in a pressed steel frame. The steel frame is fixed to a concrete floor.

The access hatch permits the installation of relatively large plant into the ceiling cavity or removal of that equipment for maintenance purposes.
