These BluCube UFH01 Fire & Acoustic Speaker Hood are a fantastic solution to the needs of many DIY & Professional installers looking to meet building regulations and alos provide an acoustic barrier to neighbouring rooms. A One Size Fits All solution for 5" to 8" ceilnig speakers.
Why do I need Speakers Hoods?
Ceiling Speaker hoods like these Blucube Universal Speaker Hoods create an acoustic and fire barrier between rooms. Under building regulations where a ceiling is cut it breaks the so called 'fire barrier' that means fire can spread faster in a property to neighbouring rooms. These hoods maintain the fire barrier. They also have a fantastic acoustic property that means music in your kitchen ceiling does not spread to the bedrooms or bathroom above, as an example.
How does 'one size fits all' work?
These hoods arrive with a 200mm aperture to cover a 5" to 6.5" ceiling speaker. If you need a larger aperture for a 8" ceiling speaker there is a cut line within the fabric which can be simply cut back to the size you require. There is even a seam in the fabric to stop any fraying beyond the size you need. Given that these hoods are constructed with a fabric material they are flexible and can therefore be fitted from underneath a ceiling after the ceiling speaker hole has been cut.
