A network of MxPro fire panels supplied by Advanced has been installed at the prestigious Riverside Studios in London’s Hammersmith. Home to a string of hit shows including Celebrity Juice, Never Mind The Buzzcocks and Top of the Pops, the Riverside Studios lays claim to being the most modern TV studio in the UK.
First converted into film studio facilities in the 1930s, the building now offers flexible performance and work spaces that include a state-of-the-art TV studio, a cinema and screening room, event and rehearsal spaces, bars and restaurants as well as a gallery and a display of Riverside’s archive that spans its remarkable history.
Two MxPro 5 fire alarm control panels, four repeater panels and a bespoke damper control panel have been installed as part of a five-year refurbishment project which saw the venue close its doors for a refit.
The Advanced MxPro 5 fire panels covering five stories of the building, with the AdSpecials customised damper control panel covering the basement areas. The bespoke panel has been designed to monitor the status of around 250 dampers, visible to the end user via a graphical touch screen interface.
