Coventry City FC benefits from Advanced fire alarm panel installation

13 November 2023

A STATE-of-the-art fire alarm panel developed and manufactured by fire protection solutions specialist Advanced has been installed at Coventry City Football Club’s training facility. The safety installation forms part of a six-figure scheme of upgrade works at the Ryton Training Ground, where the EFL Championship club has trained since the early 1960s.

The facility’s two pitches and warm-up areas have also been totally reconstructed for the 2023-2024 season, as new owner and executive chair Doug King seeks to improve the working environment for the Sky Blues’ players and staff.

Swift Fire & Safety installed the Advanced MxPro 5 panel. The company was also involved in the design and commissioning processes.

MxPro 5 is the ideal choice for Coventry City FC’s safety needs. The system offers precise fire detection capabilities, minimising the risk of false alarms, while also ensuring rapid response to any potential fire hazards.

The panel has been installed alongside Apollo’s smoke and heat detectors, as well as third party visual alarm devices, in turn taking advantage of MxPro 5’s multiprotocol compatibility. The latter ensures maximum design flexibility.

MxPro 5 boasts certification by FM Approvals in accordance with the rigorous EN 54 standard. This system empowers customers with a versatile selection of four detector protocols and provides a fully accessible installer network, itself accompanied by comprehensive training and support.

MxPro 5 can adapt to diverse scenarios, offering the flexibility to function as a single-loop, single-panel configuration or otherwise integrate into expansive high-speed networks comprising up to 200 panels. Simple installation, adaptable configuration and an extensive array of peripheral options render MxPro 5 a tailor-made solution for virtually any application.

Panel for all occasions

Wayne Hill, business development manager and project lead at Swift Fire & Safety, explained: “Advanced’s MxPro 5 solution truly is a panel for all occasions. Its aesthetics, cause-and-effect programming, battery back-up and ease of installation make it an easy choice for most projects. We will always specify Advanced unless told otherwise for a particular reason.”

Neil Parkin, regional sales manager at Advanced, stated: “At Advanced, we understand that versatility is key in today's ever-changing world. The installation of an MxPro 5 panel at this facility showcases the panel’s remarkable adaptability. Whether it’s safeguarding a training ground, an office building or a public space, MxPro 5 is the ideal solution, offering the highest level of protection and peace of mind.”

Parkin concluded: “This installation for Coventry City FC exemplifies our commitment to delivering state-of-the-art fire safety solutions that are versatile and can meet the bespoke needs of any environment.”
