Madison, WI. April 3rd, 2015 — Wallo Brands LLC’s round shaped, spring-loaded circular access panels will soon be available through Menards stores. The companies have inked an agreement that has Menards carrying the full line of Wallo’s revolutionary circular access panels in three sizes: 4.75” (home décor), 7” and 9” (commercial sizes). The product will be available starting in August 2015 in all 280 Menards stores throughout the Midwest.
Since their introduction in 2012, Wallo’s easy snap-in, pop-out circular access panels for drywall ceilings and walls became an instant success with DIYers. (http://www.wallobrands.com). Recently, Wallo Brands took the next logical step and added two larger sizes to bring Wallo into the commercial and industrial market.
Previously, there was only one, less-than-ideal way to access mechanical wiring hidden behind ceilings or walls: complex, cumbersome, hard-to-install framed access doors. Wallo’s round ceiling access panels conveniently overcome this limitation by using spring-loaded clips instead of screws, latches, or fasteners. The Wallo label serves as the template for cutting the opening. The Wallo panel is round, so it’s easy to identify as an access panel rather than another ceiling tile.
“Wallo’s simple, clean, classic round design looks like finished drywall, matching perfectly with a wide variety of decorating styles,” said Victor Agopov, exclusive distributor of Wallo drywall ceiling access panels. “Building designers requiring permanent access to air dampers, plumbing, vents and electrical wiring behind drywall ceilings and walls now have a choice of round vs. square access panels in Wallo’s choice of 4.75,” 7” or 9” sizes.”
Menards customers will be able to preserve the finished look of drywall while providing quick and easy access to air dampers, plumbing, vents, electrical wiring, and the like. For example, the 9” panels are designed to access or install dampers such as the EzySlide (up to 6” round and 10” joist), Inserta Dampers, Balance Pro Dampers or equivalent brands/damper sizes.
Wallo’s unique features include:
- Provides permanent access to ductwork air damper controls, electrical junction boxes, etc.
- Satisfies New 2012 Building Codes Requirements.
- Does not require framing, screws, latches or fasteners –- great for the do-it-yourselfer.
- Spring-loaded clips make installation and removal of the panel a snap.
- Attractive — can be painted or wallpapered to match any existing room décor.
- Works in walls or ceilings up to ¾” thick.
- Product’s label serves as the template for cutting the opening.
- Three convenient sizes (4.75″, 7″ and 9″ diameters).
