The Busy Season is Here and so is DuraVent

We hope all of you have remained safe and healthy since our last newsletter. On top of all the COVID-19 issues encountered by all, we at DuraVent had a close call with wildfires at our Vacaville CA location last month. Although we lost a couple days of work and production, we came out of it with no damage to our facility or injuries to our employees. A number of people had to evacuate their homes for a day or two, but everyone was safe. In our continued effort to be good corporate citizens, DuraVent created a Fire Fund to assist employees who incurred hotel and other expenses due to the evacuation.

The busy season is here, that’s for sure. We have had a record-setting September for sales and production. With the surge of activity in the hearth segment of the venting industry, dealers and distributors are seeing an influx of customers looking for fireplaces, stoves, and venting. We have continued to keep up with the demand! We hear from our hearth appliance OEM partners that their business is extremely strong, but their lead times are lengthening. So far… so good for us as our lead times are still at a standard 10 days. We see October as being just as strong as September and all indications point towards our HVAC business staying strong through the end of the year. It is nice to see the economy starting to bounce back and we hope you are seeing the same.

In this edition of The Vent, you will find a case study on a project in Hollywood Hills where our CVS® 3x5 concentric vent product was used. CVS is airtight and allows the fireplace to be power vented with a longer than normal horizontal run which gives builders the ability to place a fireplace anywhere in the room. More details can be found below. Stay tuned for more great projects like this and remember, DuraVent is the OEMs choice and the only one providing this type of venting.

As always, we at DuraVent greatly appreciate your continued business and support. We wish you all the best for the upcoming holidays and hope that the end of 2020 brings an end to COVID-19.

Sincerely Yours,

Todd Lampey
Vice President – Distribution Sales

CVS® Fireplace Exhaust Vent Plays Leading Role in Grand LA High-Rise

How do you hide 250 gas fireplace exhaust vents in an upscale high rise like the new Tower Residences at Century Plaza in the Hollywood Hills? The 44-story towers are in the heart of Tinsel Town, USA, and therefore, elegance and style is the top priority for their tenants. Having exhaust vents and exterior terminations visible from the frameless, power vented, Ortal gas fireplaces would not be appropriate in a location just steps from the Avenue of the Stars. That is why Ortal, known for their luxury fireplaces, recommended DuraVent’s Concentric Venting System (CVS®) for the difficult job of efficiently venting their fireplaces. Why CVS? The DuraVent innovation is in the exhaust pipe which is inside the fresh-air intake. This means that only one penetration is needed through the roof or wall for both the exhaust and combustion air. CVS is also compact. It has a 3-inch inner pipe, made of super-ferritic stainless steel and a 5-inch outer pipe made of galvalume which allows for zero clearance and can be run through existing joint spaces. See even more reasons why DuraVent’s Concentric Venting System was the #1 recommendation for Tower residences at Century Plaza in our brand-new case study below!
