One of largest property developments anywhere in the world in recent years, the £9 billion regeneration of the iconic Battersea Power Station in London, is protected by cutting edge MxPro 5 fire panels and bespoke AdSpecials panels from Advanced.
The Battersea Power Station Development Company (BPSDC) selected UK-based Advanced to provide fire panels for the flagship project that will ultimately see 4,329 homes built around the famous Sir Giles Gilbert Scott-designed power station, which was decommissioned in 1983. Upon completion in 2028, the Power Station itself will house shops, restaurants, offices apartments, and events spaces, including the European headquarters of Apple.
The MxPro 5 is the unbeatable multiprotocol fire system. Approved to EN54-2,4 and 13, it offers four protocols, Apollo, Argus, Hotchiki and Nittan and a completely open installer network that benefits from free training and technical support. Panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high-speed, 200 panel networks covering huge areas. MxPro 5 panels are backwardly compatible with existing MxPro 4 networks and include a host of features including AlarmCalm complete false alarm management and reduction.
Advanced MxPro 5 panels are particularly well-suited to residential and public environments as they include the unique AlarmCalm feature, which uses cause and effect programming to confirm if a fire signal is valid. False alarms can be both inconvenient and costly, especially in a development of this size, so the ability to minimise them is highly beneficial. To ensure that the system fitted seamlessly into the fabric of the buildings on the Battersea Power Station site, sprinkler and AOV vent control panels were custom-built by AdSpecials, Advanced’s in-house specialist engineering and manufacturing team.
