The National Galleries of Scotland has selected industry-leading MxPro 5 fire panels from Advanced to protect all of its properties, including three major galleries holding priceless collections. Buildings protected by Advanced panels include the flagship Scottish National Gallery on Princes Street, Edinburgh, which is home to thousands of masterpieces from the early Renaissance to the end of the nineteenth century, and the Scottish National Portrait Gallery.
The National Galleries of Scotland has over 65,000 artworks in its collection and three sites in the city of Edinburgh: the Scottish National Gallery, Scottish National Portrait Gallery, and Scottish National Gallery of Modern Art. Important artists in its collection from the Renaissance to the present day include Leonardo da Vinci, Raphael, Rembrandt, Turner, Constable, Monet, Gauguin, Picasso, Bacon, Hockney and Hirst.
The MxPro 5 is Advanced’s highest specification panel. It is one of the few panels that is fully approved to EN54 2,4 and Part 13 and can be installed in single panel, single-loop format or easily expanded into fast, 200 panel networks covering large areas, multiple sites and thousands of field devices. Advanced’s legendary performance and ease of installation and configuration plus MxPro 5’s wide peripheral range make it customisable to almost any application.
The MxPro 5 panels are teamed with Apollo devices and have been supplemented with two graphics systems as well as VESDA early warning aspirating smoke detectors in key sensitive locations. Most of the system uses legacy wiring, a distinct logistical and cost-saving advantage in historic buildings.
