In the build up to the Integrated Systems Europe (ISE) exhibition in Amsterdam, Invisible loudspeaker experts Amina Technologies Ltd would like to remind AV professionals that as well as launching an all new speaker range and high performance subwoofer, they will be displaying their range of acoustic fire hoods that compliment their speakers and installation back boxes.


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.

Corporate Background:
Amina Technologies Ltd design and manufacture in the UK specialist invisible loudspeaker solutions for high end commercial and residential premises.
Amina have developed a new loudspeaker technology that completely disappears in application. Quite literally the product is set into walls and ceilings, plastered over and decorated to become completely invisible. It needs no maintenance.

Invisibility and improved acoustic coverage are only made possible because Amina have gone back to first principles in how sound is made. The loudspeakers do not use the conventional piston operation of a cone shaped diaphragm; instead Amina returned to the traditional musical instrument approach characterized by the violin and acoustic guitar and created electrically driven vibrational sound boards. Using this UK developed technology, Amina therefore create powerful loudspeakers that are super thin, lightweight, fast to install, highly effective in creating a powerful musical experience and ultimately completely invisible once installed.

The product and the technology is continually developing and Amina choose to design and manufacture in the UK allowing new product developments to be brought swiftly to market. Quality and consistency of the finished product is absolutely key to the success of the invisible loudspeaker families and the product is designed to last for many years. Additionally Amina work with local suppliers, where possible, for piece parts, which creates a partnership approach to developing new and improving existing products in a timely manner.
