Bilco Updates Hardware Options for J-AL Floor Door

The Bilco Co.’s Type J-AL aluminum access doors are now available with standard stainless steel hardware, enhancing the corrosion-resistance of the product and making it better suited for corrosive environments.

Available in a single- or double-leaf design and reinforced for 300 PSF or H20 loading conditions, Type J-AL doors provide access to underground areas, including water and wastewater treatment facilities, pump stations, public utilities and commercial and institutional buildings. The channel frame design and built-in drain coupling allow the doors to be used in applications where water penetration into the opening is a concern.

Type J-AL doors will now be supplied with type 316 stainless steel hardware throughout, including forged hinges, compression springs and tubes, hold-open arm, slam lock and fasteners.

“We are very excited to be able to not only improve our product, but to also offer a savings to our valued customers,” said Michael Toohey, marketing manager for the Bilco’s line of commercial products.
