Abbey protect its priceless artefacts

10 December 2018

Jedburgh Abbey, a 12th century Augustinian abbey located on the Scottish Borders, has selected the MxPro 5 panel, from Advanced, to protect a rich heritage of treasures on display in its visitor centre. 

Advanced were specified by the team at SAFE Services who were appointed to design, install and commission the replacement of an ageing fire system within the Abbey visitor centre, gift shop, staff rooms and offices, utilising existing cable runs and containments to avoid exposed wiring.

Graeme Millar, fire systems technical and sales engineer at SAFE Services, said: “We have worked with Advanced for many years and as our first choice for addressable fire panels we have installed them in a wide variety of locations. The MxPro 5 was ideally suited for this project due to its high reliability and open protocol which meant that we could more easily replace the old system at a lower cost to the customer.”

MxPro offers customers a choice of two panel ranges, four detector protocols and a completely open installer network, backed up by free 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.
