Designed, Tested and Certified as a Flood Vent.
Smart Vent Products have set the standard in flood zone construction by committing to testing standards. Our certified debris clearance promotes safety and sustainability to the highest degree.
SMART VENT’S product line has been tested and certified through the International Code Council’s Evaluation Service (ICC-ES). Keep your communities safe, reduce property damage and save lives by only allowing compliant flood openings.
Engineered SMART VENTS allow for a 3-in. diameter opening when the flood door is pivoted open in a flood event. Floodwater contains leaves, grass and all sorts of miscellaneous objects that have the potential to clog up a standard screened or slatted air vent. SMART VENTS design and testing performance are the foundation of our certified rating of 200 sq. ft. of flood protection coverage per 16-in. x 8-in. vent.
