Building Codes Require Flexible Metal Venting for .
The International Mechanical and Residential Building Codes specify UL2158A Listed materials to be considered as code compliant. Underwriter’s Laboratory created the UL2158A Standard in 2006 which focused on “Clothes Dryer Transition Duct” that is listed on products which meet/exceed flame burning tests of at least 430 degrees Fahrenheit. Combining building code requirements along with manufacture’s recommendations, it’s evident that only flexible metal vents can be used as transition ducts.
Today, only two types of flexible metal vents meet the strict building code requirements and are UL2158A Listed materials that have zero flame spread and zero smoke developed as tested per Surface Burning test of UL2158A. Most semi-rigid aluminum duct meet these more stringent standards along with DryerFlex as well. While semi-rigid aluminum is airflow efficient, it crushes easily and is tough to bend in tight areas. DryerFlex can be bent into tight turns without sacrificing airflow efficiency. Simply put DryerFlex combines the flexibility of old foil materials with the efficiency and fire ratings that modern appliances and buildings codes require.

- Over time, the dryer vents in your home can become blocked by debris and lint. This blockage can cause a whole bunch of issues, from safety hazards to pricey damage.
- Often times, your dryer vent is left out of your home maintenance routine. Let’s talk about why it’s important to clean your dryer vent.
- Gas dryers can cause a risk for carbon monoxide poisoning if not properly maintained. Dryer vents that get clogged with lint or obstructed by a bird’s nest can prevent fumes from properly exiting the vent’s line.
- The gases instead will build up inside your home and create the risk of carbon monoxide poisoning. If you own a gas dryer, it is even more important that you have your dryer vent cleaned.
- Our professionally trained technicians will remove clogs from lint and debris that can build up from clothing, dryer sheets and nests to restore proper ventilation.
- When lint collects in the dryer vent system, the dryer can overheat, which creates a spark, and can cause a fire. In order to decrease the risk of a dryer fire, it’s important that a professional dryer vent and air duct cleaner inspect your dryer vent at least once annually.

- Failing to clean dryer vents was a factor in nearly 34% of dryer fires, making it a leading factor in home dryer fires.
