The University of Buckingham selected MxPro 4 intelligent fire alarm control panels from leading global fire systems manufacturer, Advanced, for the refurbishment of its campus accommodation.
Founded in 1973 as Britain’s only private University with a Royal Charter, the University is undertook a comprehensive revamp of its historic estate, including new fire alarm systems fitted by Chris Lewis Fire and Security. Advanced’s multiprotocol MxPro 4 panels were selected due to their reputation for outstanding quality, reliability and ease of use.
A number of MxPro 4 panels were installed across the campus, connected to Apollo and Hyfire detection equipment covering every student bedroom, and all kitchens and communal areas. There is also an alarm monitoring system on site and the installation has been fitted with BMS graphics cards to allow full integration with this system. This means all of these fire alarm systems can be observed and controlled from the University’s central control room.
MxPro offers customers a choice of two panel ranges, four detector protocols and a completely open installer network that enjoys free, complete training and support. MxPro panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high speed, multi-loop panels in 200 node networks covering huge areas. Advanced’s legendary ease of installation and configuration and wide peripheral range make it customisable to almost any application.
