Origin Acoustics has introduced its new retrofittable Universal Fire Enclosure. The Intertek/ETL certified UFE1160 speaker cover is a dome-shaped intumescent enclosure, specifically designed to keep the integrity of fire-resistant ceilings for one hour with in-ceiling speakers. This product is retrofittable and is certified to work with any speaker with a diameter between 5 7/8 and 10 5/8 inches.
- Expands up to five times its original size and fills in voids to prevent flames from spreading during a fire
- 60 minutes of protection
- Easy installation — no screws, no drilling, or sealants required
- Pre-construction and retrofit installation options
- Unique material offers acoustic benefits
A secondary benefit of the proprietary intumescent material is its sound absorbing properties. The UFE1160 significantly reduces sound transference and can enhance the sound quality of certain speakers.
“We could not be more excited to launch the UFE1160,” says Nick Berry, CEO of Origin Acoustics. “This product can be used for virtually any in-ceiling speaker and can be installed during any part of the installation, while still meeting fire safety requirements. The versatility this product offers are like nothing else in our industry.”
