Designed to cover the rear of ceiling speakers, this fire hood is required by legislation for many new buildings. Whether legally required or not, we would recommend them as a safety precaution. Using a fire hood helps resist the spread of fire through the various floors of a building.
A further advantage of this hood is that it prevents the leakage of sound upwards – potentially into another property.
HOODY Speaker Hoods meet all relevant UK building and IEE Regulations. Custom designed for ceiling speakers, HOODY 0.5 is Parts B,L,C and E compliant and offers fire protection for up to 90 minutes for all circular and rectangular speaker designs from 3″ to 5″ (76 - 127mm) diameter.
It’s a requirement for all speakers that are installed below any habitable rooms and escape routes to be treated. A standard two storey house for example will require all the ground floor speaker locations to have hoods fitted. If a house has three floors the regulations require hoods to be fitted on the ground and first floor speakers.
The HOODY 0.5 dimensions are - Diameter 180mm / Depth 145mm
