Eight residential apartment buildings in Roscam, in County Galway, Ireland are now protected by the new-generation single-loop Advanced Go fire panel.
Fire and security service providers, Securecom Claddagh Ltd, carried out the replacement and upgrade of an ageing fire alarm system, installing a Go panel in each of the three-storey apartment blocks.
A Go panel was installed near the front door of each building, covering their hallways and landlord areas. The panels were hard-wire integrated with Apollo detectors and with a CSL fire-specific remote monitoring communication device that communicates to an alarm receiving centre, allowing the relevant key holders to be informed when triggered.
Securecom Claddagh has been using Advanced fire panels for a number of years in its projects due to their ease of programming and standardisation across sites, as well as the panels allowing effective technical phone support from Advanced in the event of a fault or unwanted alarm.
Jason Small, Director at Securecom Claddagh said: “Advanced supplies fantastic equipment, which is very reliable and offers the same interface whether installing a Go panel on a small site or using an MxPro 5 fire panel for a larger networked site, such as a hotel or factory.”
Neil Parkin, Advanced Sales Manager for the North, said: “Our Go fire panel features the same interface as our other Advanced fire panels, which means fire and security providers are familiar with how they work, ensuring quick installation. The Go provides sophisticated Advanced configuration but with a single loop making it ideal for small or standalone projects, like the Roscam apartment buildings, that still want robust fire protection to offer real peace of mind. Go was developed so customers can benefit from the performance, reliability, and flexibility they’ve come to expect from our premium MxPro 5 range, but in a cost-effective, single-loop format for simpler sites where networking’s not needed.”
