Blucube Universal Fire & Acoustic Speaker Hood UFH01

Availability: Sold out

Product Code: UFH01

Brand: Blucube

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.


 


Features


 



    • 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
