The SMART VENT® model is certified to provide flood protection and natural air ventilation. This model is used for a home with a crawl space or any enclosed area that desires natural air ventilation and flood protection. The all stainless steel design insures product sustainability.

How it works:

Flood Protection:

The SMART VENT® door is latched closed until it comes in contact with flood water. Entering flood water lifts the patented internal floats which unlatch and allow the door to rotate open. This allows the flood water to automatically enter and exit through the frame opening, relieving the pressure from the foundation walls.


A bimetal coil automatically opens and closes the ventilation louvers as temperature changes. No electricity is required. The louvers will be fully closed at 35* and fully opened at 75*. Regardless of the louvers' position, opened or closed, in the event of a flood, the internal floats lift to release the flood door to rotate open and relieve the hydrostatic pressure.
