Access Door RD with NBR Gasket (up to 80°C)

Liquid-tight Version

Available in four dimensions:
RD 18 (opening size 180 × 80 mm)
RD 21 (opening size 200 × 100 mm)
RD 32 (opening size 300 × 200 mm)
RD 43 (opening size 400 × 300 mm)

Only suitable for ducts with a clean and smooth surface without seams.

Internal tests demonstrate that the access doors remain oil-tight with an overpressure of 10'000 Pa. Since the conditions on the construction site are never ideal, and because the quality of the ducts does vary, no definitive guarantees can be given regarding the tightness, especially in the long term.

Max. operating temperature: ≈ + 80°C.

  1. Duct wall.
  2. Press formed covers (original METU-Design available in galv. and stainless steel V2A).

RD access doors with NBR gasket: S1 = max. 5 mm
For thicker duct wall thickness special access door versions with longer bolts can be ordered.

RD 18 : H ≈ 37 mm

The steel knobs require the same clearance since the same bolt length is required to operate the access door properly.
