Flood vents can help protect homes and commercial buildings by preventing damaging water pressure buildup. When installed in an overhead sectional door, the vent operates by latching closed until it comes in contact with flood water. The incoming flood water then lifts internal floats which unlatch and allow the vent to open. The flood water is then able to freely enter and exit through the frame opening. This rotation then relieves the flood water pressure. Each 16″ x 8″ vent is certified to cover 200 square feet of enclosed area for flood protection.
