UK’s Tallest Residential Tower to be Protected by Advanced Fire Panels

4 Mar 2020

Global systems leader, Advanced, is celebrating being specified on yet another landmark development in London.

The installation of Advanced fire panels at the Landmark Pinnacle marks another tall-building win for the manufacturer who, in 2019, announced its specification at Western Europe’s second tallest building, 22 Bishopsgate.

Standing 75 floors high at the head of the South Dock in the heart of Canary Wharf, the Landmark Pinnacle will, on completion in 2020, be the tallest residential building in Europe with more habitable floors than any other building in London, the UK and Europe. With prices starting from £480,000 and amenities including a roof garden, gym, private dining facilities and a cinema, London’s latest skyscraper, at 239 meters tall, will offer stunning views across London and the surrounding counties.

Four market-leading 8-loop and two 4-loop intelligent MxPro 5 fire panels alongside three repeater panels specified for the tower will be installed by Bedfordshire-based Firelec Controls Limited – responsible for the design, installation, testing and commissioning of the fire system. The MxPro 5 panels, that last year were certified by FM Approvals to the EN54 standard, will be networked with the tower’s BMS using BACnet, include a custom graphics package and link to over 140 AOV vents and sprinklers with phased evacuation between floors.

Richard Randall, Managing Director at Firelec, said: “Advanced panels are our first choice every time, combining reliability and superior technical ability. Given the nature and size of the Landmark Pinnacle we needed a high level of protection to secure the public areas of the building and thanks to Advanced’s vast cause and effect capabilities they were the ideal solution for this installation project.”

The MxPro 5 is the unbeatable multiprotocol fire system. Approved to EN54-2,4&13, it offers four protocols, Apollo, Argus, Hotchiki and Nittan and a completely open installer network that benefits from free training and technical support. Panels can be used in single-loop, single-panel format or easily configured into high-speed, 200 panel networks covering huge areas. MxPro 5 panels are backwardly compatible with existing MxPro 4 networks and include a host of features including AlarmCalm complete false alarm management and reduction.

Amanda Hope, New Business Development Manager at Advanced, said: “Landmark Pinnacle is the latest in a long line of tall buildings to benefit from Advanced protection, including western Europe’s tallest and second tallest buildings, the Shard and 22 Bishopsgate. Where complicated cause-and-effect programming is required, our panels deliver market-leading performance and protection and we’re thrilled to have been able to support Firelec with the equipment required.”

Advanced, owned by FTSE 100 company Halma Plc, have an impressive history of protecting some of the most prestigious and iconic sites across the globe, including London’s Shard, Istanbul’s Hagia Sophia and Abu Dhabi International Airport.
