Dryers are the source of approximately 15,500 fires per year, resulting in 34 deaths, 430 injuries, and over $209 million in property damages in the United States.*
90% of all appliance fires are dryer related. The number one reason dryer fires start, is failure to use all manufacturers recommendations, to install only rigid metal duct. Similarly, the risk of fire is equal in gas-fueled dryers and electric dryers, and lint buildup occurs in all flexible duct products.
Reduce the Risk of Dryer Fire
As lint collects in the dryer vent system, the dryer can overheat, throw a spark, and cause a fire. It's that simple. In order to decrease your risk of a dryer fire, all dryer manufacturers recommend to never use any type of flexible duct products. Consequently, by using our heavy metal sealed fittings, along with rigid metal duct, you are guaranteed to reduce the risk of a dryer fire by removing the main source of ignition from your home.
