A network of 19 UL-864-approved Axis AX fire panels from Advanced has been installed at the 178,000m2 Marassi Galleria shopping mall in Bahrain. A further network of 14 Axis AX fire panels were also installed at the mall’s adjoining waterfront boutique hotel and high-end serviced apartments – the Vida Hotel and Residences.
A combined total of 47 panels comprising 31 4-loop Axis AX panels, two 4-loop Axis AX panels with integrated telephone and voice evacuation systems, 2 mimic panels, two repeater panels and two graphical command centres will form the core of the active fire protection for the $374m resort, once completed at the end of 2021.
In total, the Axis AX panels from Advanced will be linked to almost 11,000 devices including 6,400 smoke/heat detectors and a further 2,823 control/monitoring modules. The graphical command centres for each network will provide user-friendly system visibility and control, with each fire system being networked with a host of third-party equipment, including lifts, escalators, air handling units, gas suppression systems, CO systems and fan and damper solutions.
Advanced’s Axis AX system delivers power and performance in a user-friendly format with a vast range of configuration, control and interface options as well as simple set-up and operation. The Axis AX system includes easily networked panels, audio panels and command centres, redundant controllers and a huge range of peripherals, devices and interfaces that make it ideal for almost any installation.
