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 states 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 for all in-ceiling speakers that are installed below any habitable rooms or means of access or escape. 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.
