It is no secret that flooding disasters across our country have increased not only in frequency, but also in severity. As federal, state and community officials continue to increase flood mitigation education efforts and code compliance monitoring efforts, the need for engineered, automatic flood vents is greater than ever.
A few years ago Flood Flaps set out to design and manufacture an affordable, automatic flood vent solution. One of our goals was to design a quality, affordable, basic engineered flood vent that would meet FEMA and building code requirements. Along the way, we discovered the need for, and developed, another automatic flood vent that prevents air, moisture and dust from traveling through the flood opening.
Flood Flaps ICC-ES evaluated, engineered, automatic flood vents are one of only two products of its kind. Owners in floodplains across the country have been searching for a more affordable automatic flood vent option that possesses the highly credible ICC-ES certification. So what do we offer owners with Flood Flaps foundation flood vents...UNMATCHED VALUE and SUPERIOR PERFORMENCE.
Our products are designed to provide efficient relief from hydrostatic water pressure resulting from rising flood waters. All of Flood Flaps flood vents cover 220 sq. ft. of enclosed area. Each flood vent is constructed of UV enhanced, durable, engineered ABS plastic that has undergone 2,000 hours of scientific lab testing, ensuring its durability and sustainability (will not rust or pit), along with a providing a handsome, classy finished look on the exterior.
Flood Flaps Sealed Series flood vents are perfect for structures located in floodplains that desire conditioned space or an encapsulated crawlspaces. These models use two (2) rubber flaps to keep air from passing through the flood opening in non-flood situations, 365 days a year. In the case of a flood, the rubber flaps will give to the pressure of flood water and allow water to enter or exit the flood opening. Energy efficient flood vents such as Flood Flaps Sealed Series models are even more important as states are adopting and enforcing the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code.
