Atlas Master Companies recommends SMART VENT flood vents for their customers, especially those located in a floodplain. The door on the vent is latched until flood waters enter. If the vent senses flood water, it lifts the internal floats. By doing this, the vent unlatches and opens the door. This will allow water and debris to escape. This will equalize the pressure on either side of the wall, effectively protecting your foundation and home.
Flood vents are different than an air vent. Air vents can clog with debris and have not been tested in the case of flooding. You don’t want to be stuck with just air vent if you live in a floodplain. You really need SMART VENT to ensure you are protected. The SMART VENT is certified by the Inter-Code Council and is also FEMA and NFIP compliant. In fact, SMART VENT is the only FEMA-Accepted and ICC-ES Certified flood vent available in the marketplace today. Don’t accept any substitute, have only the best flood vents installed in your home or business by the best installers in the area, Atlas Master Companies.
What is the advantage of SMART VENT over other flood vents? You won’t find more advanced protection for your home from flooding anywhere else. Since SMART VENT means fewer holes in your home or business, you can keep your home looking beautiful while you provide the best possible protection from flooding. They can help with flood insurance premiums as well, so if you install SMART VENT, check with your NFIP Flood Insurance Agent. Another great thing about SMART VENT is that they are made in the USA!
