The Dryerbox ® is a UL classified metal receptacle that installs in the wall behind the dryer and facilitates the collection of the flex exhaust hose. It provides almost two additional square feet of living area, lessens the risk of lint build-up and provides energy savings by removing the kinks usually found in the flex hose.
Don’t Build A Home Without It Have a washer and dryer at home? Good chance the dryer is five or six inches away from the back wall and the flex exhaust hose resembles a snake. “Tight bends in the flex exhaust hose accelerate lint accumulation and can really impair the efficiency of the dryer and worse yet, create a fire hazard,” says Rick Harpenau, owner of In-O-Vate Technologies, Inc. and inventor of The Dryerbox ®. The 21 inch high molded box will house and collect the flex transition hose allowing the clothes dryer to be installed right against the wall. Eliminating the bends in the flex exhaust hose provides for better, less restrictive airflow, which in turn minimizes lint buildup, saves energy costs and reduces the serious fire hazard caused by lint build-up.

Contractor Benefits For The Building Contractor The Dryerbox® is sized (10” in width) to fit within 12”, 16” or 24” center studs. It only needs connection at three corners so no additional framing is needed. It is a very rigid 22 gauge aluminized steel with a Classification from United Laboratories to allow its installation in a one-hour rated wall assembly. It’s 20” height provides for sufficient room to store the recoiled aluminum flex. For The Plumbing Contractor The Dryerbox® features a “knock-out” port for a gas line, allowing for a convenient and space saving location of the gas valve and fittings. For The Drywall Contractor The extension rim on The Dryerbox® protrudes 7/8” from the nailing flange offering a built-in corner bead. A Roto-zip (spiral saw) tool will cut out the opening just like any other receptacle, leaving a small crevice that gets caulked by the painter when he caulks the baseboard. The Dryerbox® is metal so the zip-cut bit head will not gum up with plastic like other large receptacles cause.
Contractor Benefits For The Trim Carpenter The extension rim on The Dryerbox® protrudes about 1/4” providing enough of a edge to butt the baseboard to. The easiest and best looking saw-cut is just a slightly back-cut angle. The Dryerbox® should not be installed above the baseboard as this defeats the purpose of the receptacle providing a space to protect the flex transition hose. All typical American dryers vent in the same location: at the very bottom and in the center of the appliance. For The Painting Contractor After the drywall contractor “zip-cuts” around The Dryerbox® receptacle, there is a small crevice between the drywall and the metal box that is easily filled with caulk. This built-in corner bead rim protects the drywall from damage and provides enough of a reveal for the trim carpenter to butt his baseboard to. The surface is already prepared for painting. No masking is necessary. “Orange Peel” and wall paint right over the aluminized steel.
