Product Overview

Dundas Jafine's Recessed Dryer Vent Box allows the dryer to be pushed up against the wall of the laundry room instead of having to be positioned 5-6 in. away in order to accommodate the dryer duct. The box also completely protects the duct from being crushed and lint build-up is minimized due to the limited kinks and bends. The Dundas Jafine Recessed Dryer Vent Box is made of high impact polystyrene (UL94HB rated) and has some additional features and benefits which make it unique over other dryer box products in the market. This product has a built-in draft blocker to help reduce cold air back draft into the home as well as an oval to round duct adapter which threads on easily to the duct and makes installation fast and easy.

  • Connects flex transition duct safely and space efficiently in the wall behind the dryer
  • Oval to round adapter included
  • Trim cover included
  • Reduces chance of duct getting crushed by dryer
  • Maximizes dryer efficiency by reducing lint build-up
  • Can be used with semi-rigid and flexible duct

Answer: 
The dryer duct that is connected to the back of your dryer, runs through the recessed dryer box and is then connected to your in-wall duct. The lint would be exhausted outside your home through this in-wall duct.

It can but not without considerable work which at the minimum is opening the wall, determining if it will fit suitably, installing, then repairing the wall. It depends greatly on how your dryer is currently vented. Also note that the photo of the box does not clearly indicate that the outlet leading outside the box is oval. It is designed to accept the standard 4" metal duct tube that is squeezed into an oval. You'll see from other reviews that no commercial adapter from round to oval is available. In my case, I opened up the wall and discovered that the vent box was impractical without relocating much of the duct work. The 4" duct, when squeezed into an oval, would not quite fit. In the end, I decided not to use the commercial vent box. Instead, I just used a 4", 90 deg ell from Home Dept which will swivel into a small offset and then framed it in. See attached photo of the nearly finished install. Read Less

Recessed Dryer Vent Box is rated 3.0 out of 5 by 19.
Rated 5 out of 5 by from Awesome choice for a 2x4 wall, converts 4" circle to oval for wall. Awesome choice for a 2x4 wall, converts vent to a 4" oval, then opens up to a full 4" circle for dryer connection. I needed to finish my laundry room and it didn't have the back wall framed at all, and I didn't want to use 2x6. With this box I was able to maximize my space with a 2x4 wall and the recess of the box will allow me to slid the dryer back a few more inches than having it stick out for a normal connection.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from CANNOT BE USED FOR GAS DRYERS!! Alert! Alert! Guess what? You must vent gas dryers directly... CANNOT BE USED FOR GAS DRYERS!! Alert! Alert! Guess what? You must vent gas dryers directly to the rigid aluminum pipe by code. Note in the specs it says "Compatible Appliance Type: Electric Dryers" Dryer vent boxes are cool.. The way of the future. But they should all be made of metal so carpenters are not later chopping up drywall to replace the flimsy plastic piece of junk they accidentally installed because they didn't read some fine print. THIS SHOULD NOT BE SOLD IN HOME DEPOT OR ANY STORE!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Lent blows everywhere My contractor thought this was great. The dryer tube falls out and lent is everywhere. Sadly I have to remove drywall to remove it.

However, mine came with different sized pieces to screw into, which I thought was odd, but it didn't impact installation or function. Overall, a bit flimsy and packaging was poor, but it gets the job done. Just make sure you have all the right pieces before you leave the store. I ordered mine online and luckily the parts it came with still worked fine.

Rated 1 out of 5 by from Flimsy Product Ordered nine of these for some apartments I own. They came carelessly packaged. We took one look at them and found the product to be very flimsy. They are made out of plastic that is very thin in all the wrong places. While I like the idea of this product and might consider putting this in my own home if I really needed the space behind the dryer, no way I am going to put this into rental units. The tenants would break off the plastic part that you hook your dryer onto off quickly and we would have been stuck with a product that would require the wall to be opened up to be replaced. No thank you. Returned this at the store (which is a great option because its easy and you pay no return shipping)and got my money back except for the initial shipping cost. Too bad for the $57 in initial overnight shipping I lost on the deal, but I am glad I did not have these put in. **Also, for remodeling you need to realize that this product will take up quite some "in wall" space that you might not have because behind your laundry room wall you have hot & cold water, electricity and sewer pipes going on.**

Rated 1 out of 5 by from DON'T WASTE YOUR MONEY!!!! I agree with everyone else that said it is VERY hard to install, very flimsy and is not worth the headache to to try and install it! It doesn't come with very good instructions and the frame keeps coming loose from the wall, it looks terrible, fortunately you can't see the mess on the wall with the dryer in place!! I still need more room to open the door going out as this product just didn't help that issue!!!

Rated 1 out of 5 by from flimsy plastic I would NEVER recommend this vent box...fell apart after installation and sheetrock. I should've known because it felt cheap during installation!! Go with a metal box.

Rated 2 out of 5 by from Not what I was expecting for install. The vent box is fine enough but there were some major quality flaws that made life difficult for me. The tabs that are supposed to click on to the box so you can mount it to the wall were not sized accurately, so I ended up having to custom cut each of the tabs to get them to snap together, then the quick connect vent did not snap into place, so I had to tape it together. In hindsight I should have taken it back to see if I had a faulty product but I was urgently trying to finish the project and couldn't lose the time ordering a new one. Now that I have the box installed it is fine, but just beware that there were some technical problems getting it to that point.
