Diversified Funding, Inc. (DFI) recently purchased the Apartments at Remington Pond in West Warwick, Rhode Island, and embarked on a major renovation project, including the installation of new Fire Alarm Systems in each of the seven buildings. The challenge for DFI was to ensure that the apartment building met the latest fire alarm codes, including the new sleeping room requirements listed in both the National Fire Protection Association (NFPA) 72 National Fire Alarm and Signaling Code and the NFPA 720 Standard for Installation Carbon Monoxide (CO) Detection and Warning Equipment. These codes require that audible appliances in sleeping areas produce different low frequency alarm signals - T3 for fire and T4 for Carbon Monoxide (CO) detection. To meet these requirements, DFI hired PowerComm Systems, a leading fire alarm and security provider in Rhode Island.

About The Customer
Diversified Funding, Inc. (DFI) is a Boston-based company that recently purchased the Apartments at Remington Pond, formerly known as the Waterford Towers, in West Warwick, Rhode Island. The 161-unit apartment complex is located in the heart of bustling shopping plazas, dining options, and commercial business centers, close to major highways and transportation, and not far from downtown Providence, Newport, and TF Green Airport. The Apartments at Remington Pond are also located approximately one mile from the Station night club, where one of the deadliest nightclub fires in U.S. history took place. As a result of this tragedy, Rhode Island and especially the town of Warwick are stringent about meeting the latest fire and life safety codes.
PowerComm Systems selected the Wheelock Exceder LED low frequency sounders from Crown Supply Company, Eaton’s distributor of Wheelock notification appliances, to meet the NFPA’s latest codes. The Wheelock Exceder LED 520 Hz low frequency sounders can meet both sleeping room codes – NFPA 72 and NFPA 720 - with one device, which features two different sound patterns, T3 for fire detection and T4 for CO. The low frequency sounder strobes can replace a facility’s existing appliances, utilizing the same single pair of wires that are currently installed, offering a simple retrofit to meet new codes for sleeping rooms. The Exceder LED Low Frequency Sounder Strobes and Sounders feature multiple 520 Hz modes of operation, including T3 (fire), T4 (CO), Continuous (coded), and T3/T4 Sync Control.
