Paving its path to success, in 1982, the company become able to produce its own detectors and control panels. The production and equipment were exactly according to the market needs. A separate and complete division of electronic detection was established to develop and manufacture the fire detection and alarm systems.
Cofem is a deep-rooted company in the fire protection sector. Its commitment to the fire protection sector can be realized by the following factors:
𝟏: 𝐓𝐞𝐜𝐡𝐧𝐢 𝐅𝐮𝐞𝐠𝐨;
Techni Fuego is a Spanish association, which serves the role of bringing together different manufacturers of fire protection products. Cofem Spain, is part of this association by having a membership in this huge union, where all the famous and well-reputed fire protection producers are associated.
Cofem Spain also took part in CTN23 (Commit Técnico Normalized), which monitors and develops fire protection standards at the national level. It is another benchmark in the fame of Cofem.
Cofem also represented AENOR (Association Española de Normalization), in CEN/TC72, which is a European agency that develops the compulsory standards and CE mark under the regulation (UE) No. 305/2011. This regulation identifies the rules for the marketing of constructing fire protection products.
Applying all this collected experience and knowledge to the systems, COFEM S.A. offers competitive technology products. These products are manufactured according to each and every set standard and regulation at the national level and European level. This is the reason that COFEM’s products are genuine, and worthy to export these products to over 50 countries around the globe.
Pakistan is also a well-known country in the world, and of course, fire protection equipment is a necessary requirement of the country. The Fire Safety Trading Pvt ltd imports the COFEM authentic products from Spain, and provides it to the Pakistani users. We are dealing in fire safety equipment for years, so we are well aware of the need for such equipment, and never compromised on the quality of the products.
We also provide you the fire safety equipment on a pocket-friendly budget. So, contact the Fire Safety Trading Pvt ltd, to purchase the products from COFEM SPAIN, the products include addressable fire detection and alarm system, and conventional fire detection and alarm system.
As we already know that the company is producing its own fire protection equipment. It is in both the Addressable Fire Detection and Alarm systems, and Conventional Fire Detection and Alarm systems. Let us have a detailed look at both these categories:
𝟏- 𝐀𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐅𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐃𝐞𝐭𝐞𝐜𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐀𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐦 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦:
The Addressable fire alarm system is named so because each and every device in it works by addressing. Certain locations of a building can be controlled by giving a specific address on the addressable fire alarm system. Let’s say there is a fire in the basement, then only that part of the addressable fire alarm will be activated which is controlling the basement.
The system will also indicate whether there is a fire in that particular area or there is some other issue.
There are many devices that are connected together to form it receivable fire detection and alarm system. Those devices include:
i- Fire Alarm Panel.
ii- Smoke detectors.
iii- Heat detectors.
iv- Multi sensors.
v- Manual call point.
vii- Control Module.
viii – Monitor Module.
𝐓𝐲𝐩𝐞𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐦 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐬:
There are different devices like detectors, call points, and sounders in the addressable fire alarm system. There is a unique address assigned to every device. The addresses can be assigned by the following two different methods:
𝟏- 𝐇𝐚𝐫𝐝 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠:
A numerical binary code, tag, or switch is given to each device.
𝟐- 𝐒𝐨𝐟𝐭 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐢𝐧𝐠:
All the devices in the addressable fire alarm system are wired to the control panel. In soft addressing, the software that controls the whole system assigns a number to every device according to its wiring.
All the devices are connected to the control panel through single or multiple wire loops.
𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐝𝐨 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐬 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤?
When the sensors sense danger like fire, or any other harmful gas, they give a signal and the sounders produce sound, to make the people alert. On the display, the exact number of the device that made a sound, and the exact location from where the signal has been received, is displayed. In this way, people can quickly and easily access the area, for checking and eliminating danger.
𝐖𝐡𝐨 𝐫𝐞𝐪𝐮𝐢𝐫𝐞𝐬 𝐚𝐧 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐚𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐦 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦?
There are certain premises where the addressable fire alarm systems are worth installing. These are ideal for installing at:
i- Commercial areas.
iv- Office buildings.
and many other businesses that are working in large buildings.
𝐓𝐡𝐞 𝐀𝐝𝐯𝐚𝐧𝐭𝐚𝐠𝐞𝐬/𝐁𝐞𝐧𝐞𝐟𝐢𝐭𝐬 𝐨𝐟 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐟𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐬:
There are a lot of advantages of addressable fire alarm systems, such as:
1- All the devices are connected to the main panel through loops; hence the wiring and installation costs are low.
2- If the loop of a certain device damages or stops working, then only that device will not work, resting assure the perfect functioning of the other devices.
3- The display will tell the exact location from where the signal of fire or smoke has been received, as a result that time will be saved. And you will be able to take the safety measures instantly.
4- There is a low chance of a false alarm.
5- The large premises and buildings can be easily supervised.
𝐂𝐚𝐧 𝐰𝐞 𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐲 𝐨𝐧 𝐚𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐬?
The addressable systems are highly reliable as they serve in an accurate manner. The way of their operation increases their worth. They ensure high security against fire hazards.

The wiring costs less because the devices in an addressable system are connected via loops and less wiring is required. Consequently, the installation rate is also low. But these fire systems are but expensive and hence suitable only for the larger premises.
𝟐- 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐅𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐀𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐦 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦𝐬:
The other type of fire alarm system is known as the Conventional Fire Alarm system.
In conventional fire alarm systems, there are one or more circuits that are connected to the sensors and wired in parallel. All the individual devices are connected to the control panel with the help of their own separate wires. The wiring is completed in such a way that one end of the wire is connected to the device, and the other end of the wire is connected to the control panel.

There are many advantages of the Conventional Fire Alarm system, such as:
1- These are ideal for installation at smaller premises.
2- They are low in cost, hence affordable.
3- These systems can be set simply.
4- Their configuration is also cost effective.

There are different applications for conventional fire alarm systems. These are ideal for smaller buildings and premises. You can install them at:
i- Small schools.
𝐇𝐨𝐰 𝐝𝐨𝐞𝐬 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐅𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐀𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐦 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦 𝐰𝐨𝐫𝐤?
The smoke detectors, or heat detectors, detect fire and are known as the initiating devices. The sensors send messages to the control panel, which becomes active and triggers the sounders to produce audible alarms. In some conventional alarm systems, the fire suppression systems may also be activated by the control panels.
These fire systems can also be initiated with the help of manual pull stations.
𝐈𝐬 𝐚 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐅𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐀𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐦 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦 𝐫𝐞𝐥𝐢𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞?
Conventional Fire Alarm systems are not able to locate the exact area from where the devices received signals of fire or smoke, therefore these are less reliable than Addressable Fire Alarm systems.
The Conventional Fire Alarm Control panel is a traditional system, and it operates by analog method.
𝐃𝐢𝐟𝐟𝐞𝐫𝐞𝐧𝐜𝐞 𝐛𝐞𝐭𝐰𝐞𝐞𝐧 𝐭𝐡𝐞 𝐀𝐝𝐝𝐫𝐞𝐬𝐬𝐚𝐛𝐥𝐞 𝐅𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐀𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐦 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦 𝐚𝐧𝐝 𝐂𝐨𝐧𝐯𝐞𝐧𝐭𝐢𝐨𝐧𝐚𝐥 𝐅𝐢𝐫𝐞 𝐀𝐥𝐚𝐫𝐦 𝐬𝐲𝐬𝐭𝐞𝐦:
The main difference between the Addressable Fire Alarm system and the Conventional Fire Alarm system is, that the addressable fire alarm is exactly in points the location from where it gets the signals of fire or smoke. In this way, the time saves and it becomes easier to reach the location fast, and larger premises can be controlled with the help of this system. On the contrary, conventional fire alarm system fails to do so, and are suitable only for smaller premises.
