Application

This series is used for a garage or conditioned space where flood protection is required but air ventilation is not desired. For situations where a sealed crawlspace is being utilized in a floodplain, flood protection is still required and the Insulated FLOOD VENT series is the perfect fit for those applications.

Flood Protection

The vent door is latched closed until it comes in contact with flood water. Entering flood water lifts the patented internal floats which unlatch and allow the door to rotate open. This allows the flood water to automatically enter and exit through the frame opening, relieving the pressure from the foundation walls. Certified flood debris clearance is demonstrated with a 3” diameter opening when the flood door is activated.

Insulation

The flood door contains a 2” insulated core that has an R-value of 8.34. There is also a felt weather stripping that lines the entire vent frame helping to keep the enclosure as insulated as possible.

Flood Resistant Materials

The Smart Vent product line is constructed out of Marine Grade Stainless Steel and is 100% made in the United States. T316L Stainless Steel is renowned for its ability to withstand usage in harsh marine and chemical environments, ensuring that our products will handle everything Mother Nature throws at them. Because T316L Stainless Steel is known for its strength and resistance to cracking, dents, and embrittlement it’s utilized in high profile projects meant to last decades. Alloyed with Chrome, Nickel, and Molybdenum, T316L Stainless Steel takes the strength of steel and adds protection making it the ultimate flood resistant material.
