Studor® Introduces New and Improved Recess Box for Air Admittance Valves

Smaller design, easier to install

Collierville, Tenn., November 21, 2011 — IPS® Corporation’s new Studor® brand Recessed Box for Air Admittance Valves offers an aesthetically attractive way to conceal, as well as conveniently access, air admittance valves in the drain, waste and vent (DWV) system. This Recessed Box is the newest innovation in the industry-leading Studor family of products designed to be used in place of expensive and complex open pipe plumbing and vent systems.

As part of its innovative design, the Studor Recessed Box utilizes an industry-first integral test cap that allows for leak testing and temporarily blocking of the DWV system. The small profile, one-piece box and mounting flange design requires no additional framing or support when attached directly to a stud. Alternatively, the box can be installed using Water-Tite’s Stabilizer Bar, allowing for positioning of the box anywhere in the stud bay. Unlike other designs, the Studor Recessed Box requires no adapter since it connects directly to a 1½-inch or 2-inch ABS or PVC DWV pipe, and the AAV device simply installs in the box via integral threads with the use of PTFE tape. The Studor Recess Box also features a snap-on grille for a sleek, clean finish.

Because of its versatility to fit multiple pipe types and sizes, the Studor Recessed Box can streamline and simplify inventories. The box can be used in conjunction with the Mini-Vent®, Tec-Vent®, or Redi-Vent® products. The box is also code approved, carrying both UPC and ICC listings.
