Does my ceiling need a fire hood?
IEE Regulation 527-02-01 requires that "Where a wiring system passes through elements of building construction..... the opening remaining after the passage of the wiring system shall be sealed according to the degree of fire resistance required of the element concerned."
Our insulated hoods help to maintain the fire rating of your ceiling, thereby ensuring your home is compliant. Designed to fit our all-in-one ceiling speaker range, they offer high tech insulation and bring peace of mind.
Will it affect the sound quality?
Our hoods are also designed to minimise any acoustic leakage that may occur. The material used in our models absorbs any erroneous sound, and makes sure sound reaches only those areas you intend.
Typical sound reduction caused by our hoods is in the order of 2db, meaning you can enjoy the superbly rich audio provided by our speakers without any waste!
One size fits all?
The majority of ceiling speakers have cut-out apertures ranging in diameter from 200-250mm. The aperture of the Lithe Audio Hood as delivered is 200mm but it can be enlarged by simply cutting the fabric. A guide is marked on the flange which is the typical diameter of an 8-inch driver speaker. There is a sewn seam to prevent the fabric fraying. It is preferable to avoid cutting this seam. If however, the hood needs to be cut to fit a speaker located close to a joist, it may be necessary, on occasion to cut the aperture offset from centre to accommodate the location. This is easily achieved and does not affect the performance of the hood.
Are they easy to install?
Our hoods cater for speaker diameters ranging from 200-250mm, making them very easy to fit to our existing ceiling speaker range.
Its inner flange can be easily fixed to the upper surface of the ceiling plasterboard, meaning very little work is required to provide fantastic air-tight insulation.
