Smart Vent Products, Inc. and ILC DOVER LP have partnered and developed technology that makes Dry Floodproofing non-residential buildings a safer option. The line of Dry Floodproofing Products is called the Flex-Wall. Through point-of-use storage - eliminating the need for off-site storage and fees, rapid deployment in minutes with minimal manpower and no heavy equipment, scalable designs, and advanced materials constructed with layered Kevlar(R) structural webbing with a coated fabric water retention layer, Flex-Wall(R) provides a second to none dry floodproofing option with product variations for any type of infrastructure.
Smart Vent Products + ILC DOVER has a complimentary Plans Review Division where a team of Certified Floodplain Managers and Engineers will customize a floodproofing layout on your plans, run a Flood Zone Determination, check compliance and potential flood insurance rates, and more. Get started today by sending your Flood Zone plans to plans@dryfloodproofing.com.
