Amina Technologies Ltd will be displaying their range of acoustic fire hoods that compliment their speakers and installation back boxes. [caption id="attachment_7844" align="alignright" width="320"]Amina’s acoustic fire hoods are designed to provide 60-minute fire protection and are tested to BS EN 1363-1. Amina’s acoustic fire hoods are designed to provide 60-minute fire protection and are tested to BS EN 1363-1.[/caption] Made specifically to Amina’s specification by UK-based fire hood specialist, Hoody, three models are available: Firehood200, Firehood300 and Firehood345. The numerals refer to the compatible speaker/back box size and Amina recommend that installers use a fire hood in conjunction with their BackboxCV acoustic back box to improve on the 21dB sound isolation in wall and ceiling cavities that the BackboxCV alone provides. Amina’s acoustic fire hoods are designed to provide 60-minute fire protection and are tested to BS EN 1363-1. They also comply with UK building regulations Document B (Fire Safety) and Document E (Resistance to the Passage of Sound). The company are keen to point out that installing their fire hoods is extremely easy, being one additional stage in their standard plasterboard BackboxCV/speaker installation procedure. To help further, along with the usual printed installation instructions there is also an instruction video available on their YouTube channel (https://www.youtube.com/user/aminatech). Also featured on the channel are a selection of product installation guides and explanations on the company’s unique vibrating panel loudspeaker technology. Amina are delighted to be able to provide installers a complete installation solution for projects requiring fire protection and sound reduction to meet building regulations. ISE runs from the 10th -12th February and Amina will be exhibiting on stand P19 in Hall 1. www.amina.co.uk
