The latest fire system from Advanced has been installed at the core of a wireless fire detection system protecting the historic Leuchie House in the Scottish Borders.
As part of an upgrade to the existing wireless fire system at the classical Georgian mansion house in North Berwick, which operates as a respite centre for people with multiple sclerosis, an Advanced 4-loop MxPro 5 fire panel was installed alongside the latest EMS wireless FireCell equipment. The MxPro 5 was selected to protect the five-storey, 18th century building and its residents, thanks to its compatibility with EMS FireCell XP detection devices.
The installation of the fire system was undertaken by Galashiels-based Safe Services, who required a solution capable of delivering seamless protection whilst keeping disruption to the fabric of the building to a minimum. As a listed building, retaining a wireless fire system was agreed to be the most suitable form of protection to safeguard the features of this period property. Installing cabling would have been intrusive to the décor and difficult and costly to achieve in the more inaccessible areas of the site.
The MxPro 5 is the unbeatable multiprotocol fire system. Approved to EN54-2, 4 and 13, it offers four protocols, Apollo, Argus, Hochiki 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 networks of up to 200-panels covering huge areas. MxPro 5 panels are backwards compatible with existing MxPro 4 networks and include a host of features including AlarmCalm for complete false alarm management and reduction.
