Advanced is a world leader in the development and manufacture of fire protection solutions.
Advanced’s reputation for performance, quality and ease of use sees its products specified in locations around the world, from single-panel installations to large, multi-site networks. Advanced products include complete fire detection systems, multiprotocol fire panels, extinguishing control, fire paging, false alarm management and reduction solutions as well as emergency lighting.
Advanced already protects a wide range of prestigious and high-profile historic and heritage sites across the UK and beyond, including the vault housing the Magna Carta at Lincoln Castle and the Natural History Museum, and understands the unique challenges these types of buildings pose for those tasked with protecting them from fire. The threat and consequences of fire in any building are serious. However, in the case of historic sites, the loss of irreplaceable artifacts of high monetary and historic value is permanent and costly to our heritage.
Advanced offers a wide range of solutions to help ensure that lives, as well as the historic value and authenticity of buildings, are safeguarded. Specialist solutions include products designed to lessen aesthetic impact without compromising reliability, quick and safe evacuation even in irregular layouts, minimise the disruption caused by false alarms, protection for disabled visitors, and peace of mind for unstaffed sites.
Advanced fire panel technology is developed with convenience and ease-of-use firmly in mind. As a result, the latest panels are compatible with the oldest and they’ll work just as well with detectors installed over 20 years as they do with the newest models. This backwards compatibility means you can get a system up and running quickly without needing to replace older equipment.
Advanced is owned by FTSE 100 company Halma PLC, a global group of life-saving technology companies with a clear purpose to grow a safer, cleaner, healthier future for everyone, every day.
“As the castle is a listed building, it was essential that the panels and detectors be as discreet as possible, particularly in the Magna Carta vault. We’re very pleased with the Advanced systems installed.”
“The MxPro 5 panel stands alone in the market for ease of installation and maintenance, network stability and speed.
“We needed a system that would be simple to operate, while also offering backwards compatibility with some of the loop devices that were already installed on site.”
“The engineer’s plans called for a level of accessibility and functionality that we knew Advanced equipment could offer.”
“Durham Cathedral has played a prominent role in the history of the North East and it continues to attract visitors from around the world. Both the building itself, and priceless artefacts such as Prior Castel’s Clock, deserve the best possible protection. After working closely with the installation team, we concluded that Advanced panels offered the right combination of quality, reliability and functionality required for this vital system.”
