Instead of having a content library locally on the computer, all included families have been pre-loaded into the template.
The graphics of most symbols have been modified to match EN ISO 7010:2020.
Each unique country template also has its own symbols to match existing standards.
For Revit 2020 & 2021:
All compartmentations for wall requirements belong to the Generic Models
All other symbols are Fire Alarm devices
Compartmentations in the engineering model use Spaces.
For Revit 2022:
Wall & opening fire rating requirements are Fire Protection
Requirements about the door environment are Security devices
Signage has been introduced
Components for Mechanical engineers are found in Mechanical Equipment
Components for the electrical engineers are found in Electrical Equipment
ISO 7010:2020 symbols are still in Fire Alarm Devices, which can be used for evacuation plans.
Comments and Split walls are Communication Devices
All symbols have three sizes. 1_S(small), 1_M(medium) and 1_L (large)
as Instance parameters.
In general, these sizes mean that the symbols have these dimensions in the model
The Generic models/Fire Protection that symbolize fire compartmentation for walls have a 3D text showing the requirements in 3D
and elevations/section views while in Detail Level: Fine.
All parameters that are supposed to be sent to other stakeholders; have a prefix “FireReq_” instead of just “Fire_”.This is to emphasize that it is a Fire Requirement.
All other parameters that control the object still have the prefix “Fire_”.
The parameter Fire_Base has been updated to Fire_Elevation to control the elevation of the symbols.
All materials and assets have been updated with the prefix “fire_”
