Advanced to protect new £49 million Emergency Assessment Centre

as part of a major upgrade to the hospital’s fire system. Wexham Park Hospital is a large acute


NHS hospital situated near Slough in Berkshire. As well as the main hospital building, the site has a large post graduate building, ambulance station, staff accommodation and a new £49 million, state-of-the-art, four-storey Emergency Assessment Centre. Responsible for the design, supply,

installation, testing and commissioning of the system was Advanced’s partner, Static Systems Group, who install Advanced under their brand name Evo2. Static Systems completed the site-wide upgrade with 20 networked, MxPro 5 panels, 18 MxPro 5 repeater panels and 2000 Apollo field devices throughout a number of hospital buildings and departments including Intensive Care,

ndustry-leading MxPro 5 fire panels from global systems leader, Advanced, have been installed at Wexham Park Hospital

Sterile Services, Radiology and its new 9,300 sq-metre Emergency Assessment Centre. Alex Southall, Proposals Manager at Static Systems, said: “We pride ourselves on our skills and expertise in working in challenging, live healthcare settings – it’s where we excel. We specified Advanced on this project thanks to the MxPro’s second-to-none networking capabilities, flexible multiprotocol platform and user-friendly interface. This enabled Static Systems to deliver a seamless installation with minimal disruption to the everyday workings of the clinical teams.” MxPro 5 is the fire industry’s leading multiprotocol fire system solution and was recently certified by FM Approvals to the EN 54 standard. It offers customers a choice of two panel ranges, four detector protocols and a completely open installer network, backed up by free training and support. MxPro panels can be used in single loop, single panel format or easily configured into high speed, multi-loop panels in 200 node networks

covering huge areas. MxPro’s legendary ease of installation and configuration and wide peripheral range make it customisable to almost any application. Phil Calvey, Sales Manager for the South

West, said: “As one of the latest NHS hospitals to be protected by Advanced panels it was a pleasure to be able to meet Static Systems’ needs on the fire system upgrade at Wexham Park Hospital.”

01462 489 516 Stroke unit goes to the toilet to help patient recovery

The stroke unit at Blackpool Victoria Hospital has become the first of its kind in the country to go to the toilet to help patient recovery. The specialist department within the Blackpool Teaching Hospitals NHS Foundation Trust has had a Closomat Palma Vita shower (wash & dry) toilet installed. The toilet has integrated douching and drying, triggered when the flush mechanism is operated by pads on the side of the toilet, thus enabling patients to go to the loo without having to rely on nursing staff to help them. Purchased by the Blue Skies Hospital Fund – the fund-raising vehicle for the Trust- the Closomat is largely the result of campaigning by former stroke patient at the hospital Jean Sherrington. Closomat supplied and installed the new toilet and spent time training nursing staff so all understand how the toilet functions. The company is Britain’s leading manufacturer of disabled toilet solutions; its Palma Vita is the biggest-selling shower toilet in the country, delivering the most effective washing and drying performance. Unlike alternative shower toilets, the Closomat Palma Vita can be accessorised, initially or retrospectively, to accommodate changing needs.
