DBX1000 Dryer Vent Boxes with Snap-On Trim Rings

Product Overview

Basic Use

The DBX dryer vent boxes are recessed dryer vent receptacles with trim rings expressly designed for four and six inch wall installations. They provide a clean, professional look while reducing construction costs and back-end delays on drywall and paint repair. DBX vent boxes are designed for single- and multi-family dwelling in attached and detached configurations.

DBX dryer vent boxes install in the wall behind a clothes dryer in a laundry room. These molded receptacles provide space to accommodate the flex hoses of a dryer, allowing the dryer to be installed flushed against the wall. This also eliminates any bends or kinks in the dryer’s exhaust hose. The result is improved airflow that is more energy efficient and it eliminates dangerous lint build-up, a major source of house fires.

These vent boxes can be easily converted support down vents by simply turning the box upside down, as well as easily installed in the more typical up vent configuration. Its patented Snap-On trim ring eliminates repairs and save valuable time.

No caulking is required prior to painting. DBX trim Snap-On trim rings eliminate the need to frame the vent box with baseboard. Twelve screw holes are provided to allow secure attachment for the studs.
