Popular Dryerbox Gets One Hour UL Listing
(Jupiter, FL - February 2005) In-O-Vate Technologies, Inc. adds some serious marketability to its already popular solution to dryer venting by obtaining a one-hour F rating from United Laboratories, Inc. UL is the trusted source across the globe for product compliance. Their Standards for Safety are essential to helping insure public safety and confidence, reduce costs, improve quality and market products and services.

All four models of the Dryerbox have been tested and approved to be installed in wood or metal frame construction of 2x4 or 2x6 sizes. “This is a huge advantage for us and for our customers who locate the dryer against a one-hour rated wall, which is typically found in multi-family homes or at the wall between the garage and living area,” said Rick Harpenau, the inventor of the Dryerbox.

This simple product saves space in the laundry room, allows the dryer to operate more efficiently and reduces a common household fire hazard. To-date, over 750,000 units have been installed in homes across the country. The popularity of using a receptacle to house and collect the flex dryer hose in the cell of the wall has grown remarkably over the past several years. The Dryerbox allows the clothes dryer to be pushed back against the wall of a laundry room without the fear of kinking the exhaust hose. “As builders, architects, inspectors, subcontractors and homeowners see the product for themselves; they are asking why this wasn’t available sooner. It really is a common sense type of product,” Harpenau said.
