Here at CMS Mechanical, we love it when HVAC professionals and manufacturers come up with new products and solutions that can make our work more effective. In this article, originally published by HVAC & Refrigeration Insider, we learn about the new metal dryer vent box from Construction Solutions out of Phoenix, Arizona. This new dryer vent box meets IRC and IMC codes for a 1-hour through penetration firestop system and does not require a trim ring.
Construction Solutions has been manufacturing the DBX brand of plastic and metal dryer vent boxes and matching trim rings for 15 years. Major builders and multi-family developers have been specifying and adding the DBX1000 and DBX1000M to their scope of work. In 2019 Construction Solutions is introducing their new DBX1017FR metal dryer vent box. It meets the IRC and IMC codes for a 1-hour through penetration firestop system.
The new and inexpensive DBX1017FR metal dryer vent box is powder coated white to match the washer box. The box is 10″ wide by 17″ tall and designed to fit in a 2″ x 6″ framed wall. The DBX1017FR also does not require a trim ring.
