Flood Vents Protect Homes From Hurricane Sandy. Read the full article here.
Eliminate Liability by Providing Certified Flood Protection.
Project in a flood zone? Don’t be fooled by using air vents as flood vents. This will result in a non-compliant home that will not pass by code officials and result in an extremely high Flood Insurance Premium for the homeowner.
Preserve the aesthetic beauty of the homes you build by installing our FEMA-Accepted and ICC-ES Certified Stainless Steel SMART VENTS. 16-in. x 8-in. models are certified to cover 200 sq. ft. of enclosed area. That’s five times the coverage a standard air vent provides!
With a model for every application, residential or commercial, SMART VENT will provide you a certified solution for your floodplain projects’ flood venting needs. A sustainable home starts with a well-built and protected foundation. Give your clients piece of mind and the lowest possible flood insurance premium.

We’ve spent many years studying flood mitigation and the effects flood waters could have on a poorly protected home. In fact, the SMART VENT team is certified to instruct and provide learning credits to Architects, Engineers, Contractors, Building Inspectors, Surveyors, and Insurance Agents in many states.
Ask the Experts. Our staff of Certified Floodplain Managers can assist you with choosing the right SMART VENT model for the job, review project plans and Elevation Certificates, and answer any other general floodplain construction questions you may have.
