12th Century Abbey Selects Advanced to Protect its Priceless Artifacts

7 Dec 2018

Jedburgh Abbey, a 12th century Augustinian abbey located on the Scottish Borders, has selected the industry-leading 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 1000 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.

Graeme Millar, Fire Systems Technical and Sales Engineer at SAFE Services, said: “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. 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.”

MxPro is the fire industry’s leading multiprotocol fire system solution. It offers customers a choice of two panel ranges, four detector protocols and a completely open installer network, backed up by free training and support. MxPro panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high speed, multi-loop panels in 200 node networks covering huge areas. MxPro’s legendary ease of installation and configuration and wide peripheral range make it customisable to almost any application.

Neil Parkin, Regional Sales Manager at Advanced, said: “Advanced fire systems are renowned for their quality and ease-of-use, which makes them ideal for projects such as this. 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.”

Advanced has an impressive pedigree in historic and heritage site protection. Notable installations across the globe include World Heritage Sites; Durham Cathedral, Scotland’s most sacred site, Iona Abbey and Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia as well as other landmark buildings such as the Royal Albert Hall and London’s Natural History Museum.
