Fire hoods are a requirement for all in-ceiling speakers that are installed in or adjacent to habitable rooms or within a location of access or escape.
Are you compliant ?
Cutting large holes in ceilings for in ceiling speakers destroys the fire barrier and under UK Law you as an installer are responsible for maintaining that barrier when installing any equipment. Several AV installers have been prosecuted following fires where the fire has spread between floors more rapidly as a result of in-ceiling speakers being fitted without firehoods.
Protect yourself and your customers and fit Firehoods on all in-ceiling speakers.
Firetopper Firehoods have been designed specifically for in-ceiling speakers and conform with the latest IEE and Building Regulations for Fire integrity of ceilings.
Firetopper also reduces sound leakage to the room above. Note : Use Firetopper Pro for situations where you wish to reduce sound transmission from the speaker itself to the room above.
Suitable for installation in suspended or plaster board ceilings.
Restores the ceiling's fire integrity.
Fully compliant with IEE and Building Regulations for Fire and Acoustic integrity of ceilings - BS476 Part 23 for acoustic and fire dispersion.
Reduces sound leakage into room above.
Simple and rapid installation from below or above the ceiling.
