Jedburgh Abbey, a 12th century Augustinian abbey located on the Scottish Borders, has selected a MxPro 5 panel from Advanced to protect a rich heritage of treasures on display in its visitor centre.
Founded by David I, King of the Scots, nearly 1,000 years ago and famed for its unusual architecture, Jedburgh Abbey is one of the four great abbeys established in the Scottish Borders. The Abbey’s museum houses some of the famous works of art associated with the early history of the site and some of the artefacts discovered during excavations.
Advanced were specified by the team at SAFE Services who were appointed to design, install and commission the replacement of an ageing fire system within the Abbey visitor centre, gift shop, staff rooms and offices, utilising existing cable runs and containments to avoid exposed wiring.
“We have worked with Advanced for many years and as our first choice for addressable fire panels, we have installed them in a wide variety of locations,” said Graeme Millar, Fire Systems Technical and Sales Engineer at SAFE Services. “The MxPro 5 was ideally suited for this project due to its high reliability and open protocol which meant that we could more easily replace the old system at a lower cost to the customer.”
“Advanced fire systems are renowned for their quality and ease-of-use, which makes them ideal for projects such as this,” said Neil Parkin, Regional Sales Manager at Advanced. “Our products are specified in large buildings and networks but also smaller sites, such as the visitor centre, which showcases an important part of the Abbey’s heritage. As a site of such historic significance it is even more important to offer the reassurance of a high-quality system and our MxPro panels offer all the key attributes required for this type of installation.”
