BC-UFH01 - Universal Fire and Acoustic Speaker Hood

Not yet reviewed
Product Code: BC-UFH01
Information

The (Patent Pending) BluCube Universal Fire and acoustic speaker hood is just that – a fire hood that also performs as an effective acoustic barrier to sound leakage from behind an in-ceiling speaker. Building regulations state that if you cut an aperture in the ceiling of a room, for instance to fit an in-ceiling speaker, you must ensure that the fire integrity of the ceiling is maintained.

Tested and assessed by Warrington Fire, a renowned and accredited UK testing facility, to British Standard 476 Part 21 in a standard domestic timber-joist and plasterboard ceiling, the BluCube Universal Fire Hood comfortably performed to such requirements.
 
Featuring a double-skin of intumescent fabric sandwiching a fire-proof foam and with a uniquely designed internal flange providing easy-installation, improved fire and acoustic absorbing performance and protection of the speaker from dust ingress, the BluCube UFH01 is a must for every installation. Plus its one-size-fits-(nearly)-all design means it’s likely to be the only hood you need.
 
By using an internal rim design as opposed to an external design makes the hoods:

  • Easier to install
  • The rim can be fixed using a bead of mastic/sealant/double-sided sticky tape and the swing-out dogs of the speakers clamp the hood in place
  • More air tight – therefore offer better fire protection and acoustic absorption
  • Twin-skinned intumescent with fire-retardant acoustic damping foam sandwiched between the skins
  • One size fits both 6.5” or 8” speakers
  • To fit a larger speaker the inner rim can be cut to size using a stitched seam as a guide
  • Because the hood is sealed to the ceiling there will be less dust that can gather on the back of the speaker – It offers much better protection
  • The foam is fire retardant
  • The stitching is fire retardant
  • Woven glass fibre material
