Flood Flaps FFWF12TF Trim Flange Sealed Series 12", Black
Flood Flaps Sealed Series flood vents are perfect for structures located in floodplains that require flood openings and desire a conditioned area or an encapsulated crawlspace. These models use two (2) rubber flaps to keep air from passing through the flood opening in non-flood situations, 365 days a year. In the case of a flood, the rubber flaps disengage as the pressure of flood waters rise, and allow water to enter or exit the flood opening. Energy efficient flood vents such as Flood Flaps Sealed Series models are even more important as states are adopting and enforcing the 2015 International Energy Conservation Code. Flood Flaps Sealed Series models are proven (visit our website flooodflaps.com to watch a video and see for yourself) to keep enclosures protected from exterior climate air, humidity, dust and insects. Superior Performance!

As flood waters rise, hydrostatic pressure builds around the home’s foundation. Flood Flaps® patented grill and rubber flaps give way to the pressure of the flood waters, allowing water to enter or exit the enclosed area as necessary. Unlike other flood vents or traditional air vents, our collapsing components allow yard debris and/ or trash (up to 5.75”) to pass through as well. This is extremely important. As flood waters tend to rise rapidly, clogged flood vents or traditional air vents will often clog with debris and trash, thus preventing water from entering the enclosed area and subjecting it to potential collapse. When not subjected to rising water, it takes roughly 15 lbs. of pressure to force the grill out of its secured position.
