London City Airport’s fire simulation training room mirrors its real fire system, which features MxPro fire panels from Advanced.
Opened in 1987, the airport, situated at the former Royal Docks in Newham, is the only airport to be located within the M25. Servicing over 3.6 million passengers annually, the airport has ten operating airlines that travel to over 45 destinations. The complex is already protected by Advanced MxPro panels and the new training room will allow staff to learn their use and explore various scenarios in a controlled and isolated environment.
The training room incorporates a two loop MxPro 4 panel and graphic package that will allow the staff to receive necessary training in the use of the airport systems. MxPro panels were originally selected due to their reputation for outstanding quality, reliability and ease of use.
MxPro is the fire industry’s leading multiprotocol fire solution, offering customers a choice of two panel ranges, four detector protocols and a completely open installer network that enjoys free training and support. MxPro panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into multi-loop, high speed, 200 panel networks covering huge areas and thousands of field devices. MxPro 4 is fully compliant with EN54 Parts 2 and 4, and backed up with Advanced’s renowned customer care and technical support. MxPro 5 is Advanced’s highest performance analogue panel. It is EN54 2, 4 & 13 approved and is backward compatible with MxPro 4, offering long-term security for MxPro customers.
