Kinetik Speaker Fire Hood for Ceiling Speakers
We read an interesting article the other day where an insurance company refused to pay out on a claim for a house fire. The reason they gave was that the fire spread much quicker to the first floor because the installed ceiling speakers melted and left gaping holes for the fire to travel upwards. We install these as a matter of course in order to meet building regulations and keep our customers a little safer.
As a result we decided to offer this Kinetik fire hood to drop over your ceiling speakers (after inserting them through the hole from underneath) – they conform to BS476 part 23 (parts E & F – 2004) for building regulations in the UK.
Kinetik fire hoods are simple to install and compatible with any speaker who’s mounting hole is smaller than the diameter of the hood. Available in two sizes:
Medium Speaker Fire Hood: KISP-AFH1
Hole cutout diameter : 100 – 210 mm Speaker depth up to 160mm
Large Speaker Fire Hood: KISP-AFH2
Hole cutout diameter : 140 – 250 mm Speaker depth up to 160mm
A worthy investment for peace of mind in any installation !
These Speaker Fire Hoods are designed to have as little impact on the sound quality as possible. They do add a little damping to the sound profile above the ceiling boards (but in our opinion that’s no bad thing!).
