Advanced Selected to Protect Premier Shopping Destination in Mumbai

Industry-leading fire panels from global systems leader, Advanced, have been installed in one of India’s premier shopping destinations in Mumbai.

Inorbit has emerged as one of Mumbai’s popular shopping destinations with its diverse and exceptional offerings in food, fashion and entertainment. Over the last 15 years of being in business, the mall has gained a huge fan following because of the unique shopping experience one can enjoy here. 

The Axis EN system, which has recently received globally recognised FM APPROVED accreditation, was installed by Advanced Partners, Abhay Fire and Security Engineers, who were tasked with replacing the entire system including full re-configuration, programming and commissioning. The installation, covering the entire shopping mall including all public areas and retail units, is comprised of two networked 8-loop panels linked to the building management system and exhaust and pressurisation fans for the building’s smoke control function.

Hiren M. Shah, Proprietor at Abhay Fire and Security Engineers, said: “Advanced are our first choice of panel every time, combining innovation, intuitive operation and reliability. The Axis EN system was selected thanks to its auto-learn feature and straight-forward programming of multiple zones and outputs according to the requirements of each retail unit.”

Available for European, Middle East and South East Asian markets, Axis EN is Advanced’s highest performance analogue panel range, combining 1-8 loop, fire panels configurable up to 200 panel networks with a complete range of wired and wireless loop devices and powerful peripherals.
