Insulated Flood Vent - Garage Door (Wide)
The Overhead Garage Door Models are specifically designed for standard garage doors and other entry doors that open and close on a daily basis. A built-in CAM system allows the garage door to function as normal, while the flood vent door stays locked in place. This series is used for a garage or conditioned space where flood protection is required but air ventilation is not desired. For situations where a sealed crawlspace is being utilized in a floodplain, flood protection is still required and the Insulated FLOOD VENT series is the perfect fit for those applications.
With a back plate and through bolt system allowing for an easy installation, the 1540-524 is an ideal retrofit.
The 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. Certified flood debris clearance is demonstrated with a 3” diameter opening when the flood door is activated.
The flood door contains a 2” insulated core that has an R-value of 8.34. There is also a felt weather stripping that lines the entire vent frame helping to keep the enclosure as insulated as possible.
