Fire Alarm Block Plans

What is a

Fire Alarm Block Plan?

Fire alarm block plans, also known as zone block plans or fire detection block plans are diagrams clearly showing the fire detection zones in correspondence with the fire indicator panel.

Predominantly used by the fire brigade, the zone in alarm on the FIP will be located on the block plan to determine the area of the fire risk.

Additionally, the fire service company will use this to test detectors during their annual testing.

Who needs a 

Fire alarm Block Plan

Each FIP, Sub FIP or Mimic Panel is required to have a fire alarm block plan.

This includes all new installs as well as any older systems. These must be updated with renovations or with any changes to the fire alarm system.

Fire Block Plans Reviews
Fire Block Plans have been assisting us with zone block plans for the last couple of years, we could not be happier with the service. It is a very quick turnaround with competitive pricing.  We know we can rely on FBP and provide our customers with a professional product.

General Manager at Approved Fire Gear, Newcastle, NSW

We received a defect for one of our properties for not having a zone block plan. We reached out to Fire Block Plans and they explained exactly what it was and what information was required to meet Australian Standards. Their prices were very reasonable and the finished product looks great. Look forward to working with them on the next site.

After receiving an extravagant quote from another company we found Fire Block Plans through a Google search. Their staff called us right away to discuss what was required for our fire alarm block plan and provide a quote. In less than 10 days they had attended site to establish the information and created the block plan in accordance with Australian Standards. Our experience with Fire Block Plans was excellent and we would happily recommend them to potential customers.
