Elfab, a global manufacturer of pressure relief products, has chosen a high performance fire system from Advanced for installation at its corporate HQ and manufacturing facility.
Elfab designs and manufactures rupture discs, explosion vents and detection systems for use in an extensive range of applications and industries including oil and gas, chemical & pharmaceutical, as well as for original equipment manufacturers (OEM) in industries including medical, cryogenics, aerosapce and automotive.
Elfab specified an Advanced MxPro 5 2 loop multiprotocol fire panel, as well as in excess of 130 Apollo Discovery devices to protect its facility. The MxPro 5 range is the leading multiprotocol choice, offering global-beating quality, reliability and flexibility from the company, which is a world leader in the development and manufacture of intelligent fire systems.
The system was the first MxPro to be installed by RayFire Services, for which owner Ray Hope described it as ‘by far and away the easiest panel to install and configure’ he has ever worked with.
David Mellody, manufacturing engineer at Elfab, said it was key to select an industry leading fire panel that would protect its own facility and employees.
“Advanced has an outstanding reputation for quality, performance and ease of use and also for providing excellent ongoing support to customers. The MxPro system is backwards compatible, easily expanded and upgraded which matches Elfab’s fire protection needs both now and in the future,” he said.
Neil Parkin, Advanced’s sales manager for the North, commented: “MxPro 5 is Advanced’s highest performance multiprotocol fire panel and leads the UK market whether standalone or networked.”
He talked about how it is already the fire panel of choice for a number of sites nationwide, including Tyne and Wear Metro, Durham Cathedral, the Scottish Galleries and The Shard.
“MxPro 5 delivers more features than other fire panels providing both power and technology for buildings of all sizes. We’re delighted Elfab chose it for its world-class facilities,” Neil added.
MxPro 5 is Advanced’s highest performing analogue addressable fire panel, fully approved to EN54 parts 2,4 and 13.
Advanced’s products include complete fire detection systems, multi-protocol fire panels, extinguishing control, fire paging and false alarm management systems.
