Preventing Dryer Fires

By: Ben Erickson

Dryerbox in wall clothes dryer vent box.Clothes dryers are responsible for over 15,000 fires a year, resulting in more than a dozen deaths and hundreds of injuries.

Many are the result of inadequate venting caused by crimps and sharp bends in the flexible vent hose. The Dryerbox reduces these problems and allows your dryer to run more efficiently by allowing the hose to contract into a metal box recessed in the wall.

While designed primarily for installation in new construction, a Retro-Fit model is also available.
