Lesson Learned/Best Practice

The City of Orlando requires an excess number of access panels be installed in any hard lid ceiling. Each junction box and VAV will require its’ own dedicated access panel.

Suggested Actions for Future Projects

When possible, a gasketed ceiling grid should be utilized to reduce the number of access panels in a single ceiling. Otherwise, special consideration should be made to group junction boxes together at a single access panel.
