Field Calculations Not Needed with SMART VENTS
Eliminate the Liability of calculating potentially non-compliant flood openings. SMART VENTS have been nationally tested and certified for flood coverage based on performance, not net open area.
As a Surveyor, you are in charge of documenting the compliance/non-compliance of structures built in a Special Flood Hazard Area on FEMA’s Elevation Certificate.
Compliant homeowners will receive the lowest premium available. If non-compliant, the Elevation Certificate will point out to the Insurance Agent what area the homeowner needs to change to become compliant and thus receive a lower premium. A frequent red flag for structure compliance is proper flood openings.

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.
