With a history dating back to the 1800s, the current 214-bedroom Berkeley Hotel, Knightsbridge, was built in 1972, incorporating elements of the original building. It has recently been subject to a major refurbishment covering all bedrooms, suites, terraces, the lobby, the restaurant, the iconic Blue Bar, and the main entrance.
Berkeley Hotel Emergency Lighting installation.
ACL partnered with Advanced to specify and install the emergency lighting, a LuxIntelligent emergency lighting test system and MxPro fire panels.
The MxPro is the industry’s unbeatable multiprotocol fire panel.Built on almost two-decades of market leadership it offers greater freedom to specifiers, end users and installers and includes two panel ranges, the flagship EN54-2, 4 & 13 approved MxPro 5, and the benchmark MxPro 4. Both come in 1-8 loop formats, are compatible with Apollo, Argus, Hochiki and Nittan protocols and can be networked into 200-panel strong systems.
Hotels require state of the art emergency lighting systems to safeguard their staff and residents in an emergency situation, helping to facilitate an orderly evacuation and also to guide firefighters coming into the building. We believed that LuxIntelligent, alongside Advanced MxPro fire panels, was the right choice for The Berkeley, offering the stand-out capabilities, features and reliability required of a system of this type.Lewis BowdenGeneral Manager, ACL.
