With the recent popularity of front loader laundry appliances, the addition of a pedestal or stand to increase the height has created perhaps an unknown for the builder in regards to where the Dryerbox will be installed.
Our response; a 65% larger, more versatile design. The new model 480 Dryerbox accommodates dryers that are on a pedestal or not and… can be mounted in any direction resulting in a universal receptacle (one size fits all theory).
Wide enough to fit comfortably in 16 inch on center stud spacing and 4 1/4 inches deep to fit in 2 by 4 walls that have been firred out with one 1x2.
Previously, in order to service a downward exhaust direction, our “down” box was necessary. The new 480 accommodates both mounting directions.
Installs in 2X6 (or 2X4 walls with furring strip) for venting up or down with a larger receiving area to accommodate pedestal and stand-alone dryers.
One Model 480 Dryerbox® - 22 Ga. deep drawn recessed dryer vent box with gas port, measures 4 1/4 inches deep from nailing flange. Mostly for 2x6 construction but will also fit into a 2x4 wall that has been firred out with one 1x2 firring strip.
22 gauge aluminized steel weighing 7.14 pounds each
Top port measures 4 1/8" with very slight oval shape
Distance from nailing flange to rear of box is 4 1/4"
Overall measurements: 23.5" h x 17 3/8" w x 5 1/8" deep
Inside measures 14" wide x 20 1/2" tall
Five units per carton (optional)
Made in the USA

Questions and Answers
I have a full-size, front loading washer/dryer that I stack. This Dryerbox does not have to sit on the ground, does it?
(Submit an answer)
Correct. When venting upwards in the wall, and the dryer is stacked or is on a pedestal, then the location of a Dryerbox install is critical to the height of the exhaust outlet of the dryer. If venting upwards, the bottom of the Dryerbox should be the same height as the bottom of the dryers' exhaust port. Hope this helps.

dryer box 480
this dryerbox did exactly what was needed for us. it provided the necessary space for our dryer to fit into the laundry closet easily and be able to close the closet door. solid design and contruction
from Brooomfield, Colorado.
Nice, clean installation
This dryerbox makes a very convenient finish for installing the dryer vent. quite heavy duty and well designed to allow for enough flex between the box and the dryer. One needs to carefully plan their dryer vent run for behind the wall as well stud locations for properly aligning this box with the vent exiting the wall. Overall, I highly recommend this product.
from Buffalo, WY.
Have used products in the past, first time with this model. Construction and installation were excellent and easy respectively. Will definitely use again.
We recently added a laundry room and dimensions were tight. The Dryerbox gave. U s more flexibility in using my dryer closer to the wall. Service was excellent and very prompt.
finally a box to fit different brand dryers
This box is wide enough to accomidate switching dryer brands. Less restrictive on different outlet locations. Furring the wall is extra work, but worth it.
