How Do Flood Vents Work

How Do Flood Vents Work

Flood vents are designed to allow hydrostatic loads and pressure to enter and release from a structure’s foundation to help reduce structural damage. Engineered flood vents are installed providing a permanent flood opening in a wall without human intervention in case of a flooding event.

There are a variety of Engineered Flood Vents in the market with various flow ratings. Engineered Flood Vents are designed according to FEMA and ICC requirements and guidelines.

Most homes in a floodplain that have a flood insurance policy can reduce their annual cost by installing Engineered Flood in their home’s foundation and garage.
