Spotlight on Emergency Lighting as Advanced Appoints New Business Manager

15 Jan 2020

Global fire and life safety company, Advanced, has appointed a new business manager to support the growth of its emergency lighting business.

Matt Jones joins Advanced from his role as product manager at Apollo Fire Detectors. In his new role, Matt will leverage Advanced’s strong reputation in the fire industry to tap into new emergency lighting markets and grow the LuxIntelligent and EasySafe brands.

LuxIntelligent is an addressable automatic test system that examines all emergency lighting to check it is compliant and functioning or, in the event of a failure, provides accurate maintenance guidance without the need for manual intervention. The system can be integrated with almost any type of light, offers a host of unique technical features and proves compliance with BS 5266. EasySafe is a new range of addressable, low-voltage emergency luminaires and exit signs that work with LuxIntelligent control panels and can be installed and maintained without the need for a qualified electrician. 

Matt said: “In the fire industry, Advanced is synonymous with performance, quality and ease of use, a reputation I want to mirror across our emergency lighting portfolio. We have a strong presence in the UK with plenty of growth potential, but we also aim to maximise the opportunity to expand globally as we have done with our fire products.”

Pete Browitt, Managing Director at Advanced, said: “We’re introducing further innovative products to our emergency lighting product line, the imminent launch of our EasySafe low voltage emergency lights will establish us as the only manufacturer to enable the use of both low and high voltage lights on the same loop. The addition of Matt to the team means we are now in a strong position to be able to drive our solution forward in key markets.”  

Advanced serves around 80 countries from bases in the UK and around the world and, in 2018, consolidated its operations to one, 48,000 sq ft base in Newcastle Upon Tyne to meet growing domestic and international demand for its products.

Advanced, owned by FTSE 100 company Halma PLC, has its emergency lighting solutions installed in a number of high-profile sites across the UK, from Cambridge University to Knightsbridge’s Berkeley Hotel.

Halma is a global group of life-saving technology companies with a clear purpose to grow a safer, cleaner, healthier future for everyone, every day.

Advanced is a world leader in the development and manufacture of intelligent fire systems. Advanced’s reputation for performance, quality and ease of use see its products specified in locations around the world, from single-panel installations to large, multi-site networks. Advanced’s products include complete fire detection systems, multiprotocol fire panels, extinguishing control, fire paging and false alarm management systems.
