Two fault-tolerant networks of MxPro 5 fire panels from UK manufacturer, Advanced, have been installed as part of a fire system upgrade at The Manor & Ashbury Resorts in Devon.
Set in 500 acres on the edge of Dartmoor National Park, the two hotels offer a combined total of 421 rooms as well as the Ashbury Hotel’s renowned 99-hole golf course. As part of a site-wide upgrade to the Manor House and Ashbury Hotels’ fire systems, 11 of Advanced’s flagship MxPro 5 fire panels in 1, 2, 4 and 8-loop variants have been installed to provide industry-leading protection for the resort’s staff and its thousands of annual guests.
Due to the size and complexities of the site, the previous fire panels had struggled to perform as required. This was presenting numerous challenges for the client who duly appointed Yeovil-based Castle Technical Solutions Ltd to install new control and indicating equipment and look after its ongoing maintenance. Castle Technical Solutions’ experience with retrofitting Advanced’s products to solve fire protection problems on complex and challenging sites led the company to specify MxPro 5 across the two hotels.
Ben Moss, Technical Director at Castle Technical Solutions, said: “To undertake a successful upgrade of both hotels’ fire systems, we needed a solution that could reliably handle the size of the network required. It also needed to be easy to integrate onto existing wiring and deliver instantaneous reporting of faults to minimise potential disruption to guests and staff. Advanced’s MxPro 5 is flexible, robust and dependable and has restored our client’s faith in their fire system.”
