The Hoody range of Fire and Acoustic speaker hoods will ensure that your installation conforms with the latest IEE and Building Regulations for Fire and Acoustic integrity of ceilings.
Hoody 3 meets all the UK building and IEE Regulations. Hoody is especially designed for in-ceiling speakers and features a fire rating of up to 66 minutes and is Parts B,L,C and E compliant
Due to its acoustic construction it will also help reduce backwards sound leakage from the speakers to the rooms above its location, this is particularly useful when installing in-ceiling speakers below a child’s bedroom.
We recommend that Acoustic Fire hoods are fitted to all ceiling speaker locations however it is a requirement for all in-ceiling speakers that are installed below any habitable rooms or means of access or escape that a fire hood is installed.
For example, a standard two storey house will require all the ground floor speaker locations to have hoods fitted. If a house has three storeys, you will need hoods on the ground speaker locations and the first floor to correctly comply with the regulations.
The Hoody 3 will fit most speakers, they are designed to fit rectangular speakers that have a dimension of upto 2350mm x 450mm.
