An intelligent fire-detection system from Advanced is installed at the South African head office of leading cosmetics manufacturer, Revlon.
Situated in South Africa’s Gauteng province, Revlon’s headquarters comprises an administration building, warehousing facility and manufacturing plant. With area usage varying across this large-scale site, the end user required that there be immediate identification of the location of any alarm activations An intelligent fire-detection system that uses each device’s unique address to automatically identify the location of the alarm condition was therefore specified.
The single-loop MxPro 5 fire panel from Advanced was installed alongside eight Fire Beam reflective optical beam detectors, 32 Apollo optical detectors, eight Discovery manual call points and 10 Apollo sounder beacons.
The MxPro 5 is the unbeatable multiprotocol fire system. Approved to EN54-2, 4 and 13, it offers four protocols – Apollo, Argus, Hochiki and Nittan – and a completely open installer network that benefits from free training and technical support. Panels can be used in single-loop, single-panel format or easily configured into high-speed networks of up to 200-panels covering huge areas. MxPro 5 panels are backwards compatible with existing MxPro 4 networks and include a host of features including AlarmCalm for complete false-alarm management and reduction.
