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. Opened in 1964, the West Sussex college’s main campus houses over 5,000 full-time students studying A-Levels, BTEC Diplomas, NVQs and many other vocational qualifications.

The campus has been substantially upgraded and refurbished in recent years, including a £3 million project to improve and extend the college’s hospitality training facilities in 2016. MxPro 5 panels from Advanced were selected to protect the 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.

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. 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. Advanced’s legendary ease of installation and configuration make MxPro customisable to almost any application.
