How to make access panel like this?


I have seen this ceiling access panel in my building.

Can someone tell me how I can make such an access panel myself?
Is the access panel pre-made? Should we use special tool to cut the ceiling dry-wall?

Thank you

That one is possibly premade, like a kit. Can't tell if that lid is plastic or what.

You could make your own like that. It's just a hole in the drywall with a big cover lid. The sides of the rough opening would get ball catches mounted to the rough opening. Then the lid would get the other half of the catch. One on each corner of the lid.
