Edward from Wilmington, De writes,

What is the depth required for the12"x12" access panel cutout?

I have a 12"x12" opening in a ceiling. However, I have less than a 1/2" thickness of drywall, and I have some framing studs that are ~11" oc. I purchased a different access panel for a 12"x12" opening, but I could not get it flush with the ceiling because of the studs. Any help would be greatly appreciated.


The depth required for the12"x12" access panel cutout will depend on the depth of the sheetrock the panel will be placed in. Normally, this depth is about ½ inch.
