The newest addition to the Center Parcs family, the £250 million Center Parcs Woburn Forest, is being protected by cutting edge MxPro fire panels from Advanced.
The Bedfordshire complex is one of the largest leisure developments in the UK and houses a Subtropical Swimming Paradise, Village square, a 75 bedroom hotel, award-winning spa, plaza building and watersports lake. MxPro 5 fire panels were chosen for their world-beating quality, reliability and flexibility.
MxPro 5 panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high speed, 200 panel networks covering huge areas and tens of thousands of field devices. In total, 2,563 components, including detection and loop devices from Apollo were installed in the system at Woburn Forest, which is built around a high speed, network of 17 four-loop MxPro 5 panels. An Advanced ipGateway was installed so that the entire network can be monitored and controlled remotely via a web browser.
MxPro is the unbeatable multiprotocol fire system. Offering real choice and flexibility, it includes two panel ranges, the EN54-2 & 4 approved MxPro 4 and EN54-2,4 & 13 approved MxPro 5. It offers four protocols, Apollo, Argus, Hochiki and Nittan and a completely open installer network that benefits from free training and technical support. MxPro 5 panels are backward compatible with existing MxPro 4 networks and include a host of features including AlarmCalm complete false alarm management.
