The UK’s newest Harvey Nichols store, which recently opened in Birmingham, is being protected by fire panels from Advanced.

Advanced’s integrated 4-loop MxPro 4 panel covers the entire Harvey Nichols store, which is located in the Mailbox development, and the complete installation comprises 555 components including an MX4010 repeater unit, 123 heat and smoke detectors and 88 sounder beacons.

Andy Lyall, spokesperson for Fire Bright Solutions, the project installers, said: “It was an easy choice for us to use the MxPro 4 control panel on such a prestigious project.”

The store is set across 45,000 square feet, organised as an ‘all in one floor’ retail layout combining women’s and men’s fashion, beauty and hospitality on the ground level and a mezzanine for the beauty treatment rooms.

Barry Tallintire, Group Property and Facilities Director at Harvey Nichols commented: “The new Birmingham store represents a big investment in the nation’s second city for Harvey Nichols and we needed to ensure that our staff and customers are provided with the best fire systems on the market.  The Advanced panels installed by Fire Bright Solutions can be easily programmed and monitored by technical staff in the store.”
