Advanced Lights the Way at University of Bristol

20 Jul 2021

The University of Bristol’s emergency lighting upgrade continues with the installation of a further ten LuxIntelligent emergency lighting panels from fire and life safety system manufacturer, Advanced. The new equipment will be installed alongside 21 existing LuxIntelligent panels linked to around 4,500 light fittings, to ensure ongoing compliance with the BS 5266-1 code of practice for the emergency lighting of premises.

The LuxIntelligent panels will continue to be retrofitted across a range of university buildings, including seven halls of residences, using existing cabling. The ease with which LuxIntelligent can be used to replace outdated emergency lighting on existing sites allows significant time and cost savings to be achieved.

A variety of LED luminaires have been chosen from the wide LuxIntelligent range, to protect buildings with very different lighting requirements. They include downlighters, spotlights, exit signs and bulkhead lighting that complement equipment already installed in the historic Victoria Rooms, the Wills Hall halls of residence as well as operating theatres and abattoirs in the veterinary college campus.

Chris Smith, Commissioning Engineer at the University of Bristol, said: “We fit various emergency lighting systems at the University of Bristol according to individual building requirements, however the emergency lighting in some areas of the University had become outdated and we could no longer source replacement parts, making repairs increasingly difficult. Having used Advanced’s emergency lighting system across other parts of the University for many years, I was confident that we could rely on it for performance, compliance and peace of mind.”                               

Matt Jones, Emergency Lighting Business Manager at Advanced, said: “It’s fantastic to see our emergency lighting systems standing the test of time and being chosen for this major upgrade at the University of Bristol. We look forward to continuing to support the University as their future emergency lighting requirements grow."

LuxIntelligent from Advanced is an addressable, automatic emergency lighting system, that shows all emergency lights are compliant and functioning, with no engineer involvement required. Each panel has up to four loops each, supporting 249 luminaires, and can be easily networked to work with existing wiring and luminaires, keeping installation costs to a minimum. The system also offers optional cloud monitoring and system management via mobile and web apps..

LuxIntelligent can be used with EasySafe, Advanced’s latest range of addressable, low-voltage emergency luminaires and exit signs. Powered directly from the LuxIntelligent panel, EasySafe devices need no local power supply and are compatible with any existing LuxIntelligent luminaires and exit signs, enabling the easy installation of devices onto existing wiring to form one intelligent emergency lighting system.
