Sealed Crawl Space Vents – Product Information:

If your flood insurance is going up, Flood Flaps has the flood vent, crawl space solution to bring it down! Ask you insurance provider how installing engineered flood vents may significantly reduce your flood insurance premiums.
Flood Flaps flood vents are certified by the International Code Council (ICC) to meet all NFIP flood insurance and FEMA requirements. They are also compliant with all building codes including the High-Velocity Hurricane Zone provisions of the 2010 Florida Building Code—Building and the 2010 Florida Building Code—Residential for structures.
Flood vents can help protect buildings in special flood hazard areas from damage caused by flood forces by allowing for automatic entry and exit of flood waters. If enclosure walls do not have flood vent openings, the pressure of slow moving water full of debris can cause the walls to fail and possibly cause the home or structure to collapse.
