One of the leading banks in Europe’s newest nation has selected industry-leading Advanced fire systems to protect its flagship headquarters. The purpose-built HQ of NLB Bank in Pristina, Kosovo is a landmark building in the heart of the Kosovar capital, and a symbol of the growing economic confidence of the county, which became independent in 2008. Advanced’s Axis EN fire alarm system and ExGo extinguishing control panels were specified to offer fire alarm, detection and suppression control services.
Working closely with the bank’s own team and the system integrators, Professional Alarm LLC, Advanced specified a system comprising more than 600 individual components and field devices, including 253 Advanced Axis EN photoelectric smoke detectors.
Axis EN is one of the highest performance fire systems manufactured by Advanced and one of the few on the market approved to EN54 Parts 2,4 and 13. It is the result of decades of fire systems experience and is supplied in 1-8 loop formats with each loop supporting up to 240 devices. Like all Advanced analogue systems, it is easily wired into 200-node, high-speed networks covering large areas and multiple sites. It includes a full range of intelligent devices, modules and peripherals including a full wireless device range. The system is managed and configured using Advanced’s Dynamix Tools fire panel software, making it simple to set up and maintain.
The ExGo extinguishing control panel range from Advanced, has been developed specifically for sensitive and strategic assets such as server rooms and data centres, historic and cultural attractions and control rooms. It is suitable for almost all single-flooding area applications, includes a range of control options and devices and includes a large LCD screen for easier programming and management. ExGo is approved to EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13 and EN12094-1. It is among the industry’s first to combine these with EN12094 Part 3 in a single solution. EN12094-3 relates to the integrated manual release on the front of the panel. ExGo can be easily integrated into Advanced’s Axis EN fire systems or any third party fire alarm system
