The Product Fact Sheet

PRODUCT: The Dryerbox, the original recessed dryer vent box, which saves space, conserves energy and reduces the common fire hazard

DESCRIPTION: The Dryerbox was invented and patented in the United States and was introduced to the market in 1995. The Dryerbox is a simple metal receptacle that installs in the wall behind the dryer to house and collect the flex duct hose, which connects to the wall exhaust pipe. The Dryerbox eliminates kinks or bends in the transition hose and allows the dryer to be pushed closer to the wall, thereby allowing for more usable space in the laundry room and minimizing the fire danger. The Dryerbox is made of heavy, 22-gauge, aluminized, steel-molded construction and installs between the studs before the drywall in new construction. A Retro-Fit model is also available for existing homes.

Benefits to the homeowner include:
  • Adding a net gain of one square foot of living space in the laundry or utility room (providing more work space, better traffic flow, etc.)
  • Allowing the dryer to be moved back against the wall, providing a neater, more attractive appearance for homeowners
  • Decreasing the fire hazard associated with dryers by eliminating the likely accumulation of lint in the exhaust hose
  • Eliminates space behind the dryer so that dust and lint donít collect and socks and other items donít get trapped
  • Increases the efficiency of the dryer so that clothes dry faster with less tumbling
  • Saves approximately $6 per year in energy costs
Benefits to the builder, architect and subcontractor include:
  • Removing the need for a 90-degree bend penetrating the drywall, thereby giving the HVAC contractor five additional linear feet of duct run allowance and eliminating likely punch-out work
  • Providing builders with a competitive advantage by offering their customers a more streamlined, attractive laundry room that actually appears larger
  • Virtually eliminating dryer-related service callbacks
  • Requiring no additional framing, facilitating a quick and simple installation
