Abstract (en)

An access panel (5) for a false ceiling or firewall (1), pivotally connected to a mounting frame (3) defining an access opening in the false ceiling or firewall (1) by a pair of laterally extending pins (13) which during opening and closing of the access panel (5) traverse cam guide slots (12) in the mounting frame (3). The access panel (5) is also connected to the mounting frame (3) by a double axis hinge assembly (11) which forces the pins (13) to traverse the cam guide slots (12) to prevent the front face or edge of the access panel (5) from fouling the supporting framework (3) of the false ceiling or firewall (1) as the access panel (5) pivots about those pins (13), and also prevents yawing of the access panel (5) during its pivotal movement. <IMAGE> <IMAGE> <IMAGE> <IMAGE> <IMAGE> <IMAGE>
