Advanced Protection for Chichester College

More than 15,000 students and staff at Chichester College, one of the largest education institutions in the South of England, are now being protected by industry-leading fire panels from Advanced.

MxPro 5 panels from Advanced were selected to protect the college’s new facilities, which were built by Amiri Construction. Chichester-based PA Fire Systems installed the new system, which also includes an Advanced TouchControl touch screen repeater panel and over 300 individual components.

Mark Cook, Managing Director at PA Fire Systems, commented: “This refurbishment and extension project, which includes public restaurants and a café, was a major investment for Chichester College, so a cutting-edge fire system was needed to protect it. As a long-standing Advanced partner, we felt that MxPro was the obvious choice to meet the stipulated requirements for the fire system.”

The MxPro 5 is the leading multiprotocol fire panel range available and offers high-performance fire detection and alarm control across multi-panel networks and multiple sites. MxPro 5 panels are EN54 parts 2, 4 and 13 approved. They can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high-speed, 200-panel networks covering huge areas.

Phil Calvey, Advanced Sales Manager for the South West, commented: “Advanced panels are now installed in a number of educational establishments from Edinburgh University to Brighton College. MxPro offers an unbeatable mix of innovation, quality and reliability, combined with intuitive operation, training and support, making it ideal for installations like this one.”
