Flood Flaps Flood Protection Vents – Product Description
Flood Flaps Engineered Automatic Flood Vents
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 Multi-Purpose Series flood vents are the most affordable ICC-ES certified flood vents available and perfect for owners looking to bring their existing structure or new construction into flood code compliance. Unmatched Value…an ICC-ES certified, FEMA compliant engineered flood vent covering 220 sq. ft. for far less cost.
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. Flood Flaps Sealed Series models provide a tight seal (visit our website flooodflaps.com to watch a video and see for yourself) to keep enclosures protected from exterior climate air and insects. Superior Performance.
Other benefits include vents with multiple depth offerings, eliminating the need to purchase and install an extension sleeve, a simple installation process (no sharp straps) which saves owner’s time and money on the overall cost of installation, and our products do not require annual preventative maintenance unlike other certified flood vents.
Flood Flaps also offers fire damper kits for foundation transitions that must meet fire code, interior trim frame accessory and customized configuration for larger projects, including commercial applications.
