We offer full CAD capabilities that allow you to implement the custom frame design easily into your project drawings. We will assist in proper vent placement and help with all phases of the project to assure the flood vent system is installed correctly and is to your specifications.

Flood Vent Sealing Kit
The NEW Flood Vent Sealing Kit (Model #1540-526) works to create a tight seal behind the vent opening and finish off the interior space while the vent is not in use. When a flood event occurs, the pre-cut Homasote® material blows out from the area in the center, creating a now unobstructed opening to allow the insulated flood door to open automatically. Because the Homasote® is composed of 98% recycled material, it is biodegradable and will decompose leading to less post-flood cleanup.
This simple, energy efficient upgrade is for any new or existing SMART VENT Insulated Model #1540-520 in your home or business, which exceeds the 2018 energy codes.

Trim & Sleeve Kits/Fire Dampers
The Trim Flange unit fits into the rough opening to provide a clean finished look on the interior wall. Trim flanges are available for use with standard masonry flood vents (1540-533) and Wood Wall Models (4” depth 1540-573 and 9” depth 1540-573-9) come standard in white.
The stainless steel sleeve lining is available in a 7 inch sleeve that can expand up to 12 inches, and a 10 inch sleeve that can expand up to 15 inches.
SMART VENT offers two UL-certified Fire Damper models. A masonry installation model (1540-530) and a wood wall installation model (1540-537). These fire dampers are certified to provide two hours of fire resistance. It is intended to be used in a situation in which fire proofing is required on a wall in which flood venting is installed, usually in a garage or vestibule. A fusible link holds a galvanized steel door in place. At 165°F (73.9°C), the link melts to permit the door to drop, blocking the path of the fire. Compatible with SMART VENT and FLOOD VENT models - The Fire Damper can safely be installed in the same cavity for either of the flood protection models, without interfering in their operation. Trim flange and inner sleeve are required for installation as well as a 8-inch minimum wall depth. For more information please view our Accessories Spec Sheet.
