Whether you are looking for Fire Alarm Zone Plan for a recently won multi site install or for a single building, Silver Bear are here to help!

Why Fire Alarm Zone Plans are important.

BS5839-1:2013 states that Fire Alarm Zone Plans are required on every system of any size, and should also be noted as a major non-compliance during routine maintenance, when they are not displayed on existing installations.

What must be on the Fire Alarm Zone Plan?

The zone plan must be a clear, accurate representation of the building clearly showing the division into fire alarm zones.

The drawing of the building layout should clearly show final exits, common escape routes, circulation areas and stairs. A ‘block’ diagram which doesn’t show this information is not acceptable.

You must indicate a ‘You Are Here’ point on your zone plan, so the user can locate where they are in relation to the zone in alarm.

The zone plans should be mounted by each CIE point, which are all the fire alarm control panels and repeater panels.

Whats included with your Fire Alarm Zone Plan?

  • A fully detailed floor plan with clear labels identifying each zone;
  • The plans location (Primary and Repeater Fire Alarm Panel) clearly shown;
  • Mains and utility isolation points if required; and
  • One A3 printed plan supplied with aluminium frame and fixings for each panel.
