Overview

HOODY1 Fire and Acoustic Speaker Hood for 5″ to 7″ speakers (265 x 160mm) meets all these UK building and IEE Regulations. HOODY™ is especially designed for in-ceiling speakers and features a fire rating of up to 66 minutes, is Parts B,L,C and E compliant and covers all makes of speakers from 5″ to 7" designs.

HOODY™ is a range of Fire and Acoustic speaker hoods that will bring all your installations into conformity with the latest IEE and Building Regulations for Fire and Acoustic integrity of ceilings. The regulations state that once a hole has been made in the ceiling for a speaker, the integrity of its construction and its ability to perform in a fire is significantly reduced.

HOODY™, due to its acoustic construction will also stop a large amount of backwards sound leakage from the speakers to the rooms above its location, making in-ceiling speaker installation below a child’s bedroom, for example achievable.

We suggest an Acoustic Fire hood is fitted to all ceiling speaker locations, but it is a requirement that hoods are fitted to all in-ceiling speakers that are installed where a ceiling is rated for 30 mins or more to ensure compliance.

If you are unsure, be safe… always fit a hood.

For example, a standard two storey house will require all the ground floor speaker locations to have hoods fitted to retain the ceilings 30 minute fire integrity. If a house has three storeys you will need hoods fitted on the ground and first floor to correctly comply with the regulations.

Features:
  • Prevents fire from penetrating the ceiling void and retains ceiling’s fire protection integrity
  • Reduces speaker sound travelling to floor above
  • Acoustic rated for compliance with document L of the building regulations
  • Lightweight & flexible cover can be fitted from below or above the ceiling
  • Installed in seconds and Maintenance free
  • Can be used for retro fit or new build installations
  • Can be used in suspended or plasterboard ceilings
  • Fully meets UK building Regulations BS476 Part 23 relating to audio and fire dispersion in the home Parts E & F – 2004
  • Tested to EN 6069 (1997)
  • The HOODY hoods are the subject of a pending patent application

Improves the sound
This was installed as recommended by Rob to bolster the bass in smaller ceiling speakers which it does admirably. With a TruAudio GGD-6 it provides a slight low end push giving some added warmth to the sound along with smoothing the midband. It’s very well made and very easy to fit.

Safe
After reading a lot about the installation of ceiling speakers into a residential environment I decided, after much discussions with the helpful people at Custom Speaker, to use the Hoody 1's for my Monitor Audio ceiling speakers. Not only do I feel safe that the house is protected I also think they improve the sound as well.

Noise reduction
I was concerned about noise pollution upstairs from my kitchen to the bedroom so was told that these would reduce this and also act as a fire hood. Now all the sound is in my kitchen and not in the bedroom - thanks CSC.
