Three Advanced MxPro 4 4-loop fire panels and three mimic panels were installed by Bristol-based MAT Fire Systems Ltd, together with close to 900 Hochiki devices, including 615 smoke detectors. MAT Fire Systems also installed 10 air sampling units, 4 extinguishant systems and a complete voice evacuation system. The three MxPro 4 4-loop panels were installed in different locations throughout the centre and networked together to provide a single integrated solution. This allows any fire and fault condition, at any location, to be instantly alerted on all the fire and mimic panels.

The Advanced mimic panels consist of a graphical map overlaid with LEDs to indicate fire zones. This provides the user with an unambiguous display of any fire and fault condition in the building. The mimic display can be either integrated into the front door of any MxPro 4 panel or mounted in a separate enclosure.

“The provision of open protocol solutions is a key element in any Mat Fire Systems design”, said Mr Rick Coles, Managing Director of MAT Fire Systems. “The MxPro 4 panels fully support this, and their proven reliability and excellent customer service has meant that Advanced are now our preferred supplier for large scale projects such as this one.”
