Product details

Rinnai Recess Box - Metal

The Rinnai Metal Recess Box enables an external continuous flow gas water heater to be recessed (either fully or semi recessed) into an external wall, behind a door and out of sight.


Folded galvanised steel, powder coated white. The recess box is supplied in white and can be easily customised to complement the house exterior by the owner or installer. It is designed for new build installations, as installation needs to commence during the framing stage, before internal linings, claddings or building wrap is applied.

Suitable for

  • New construction, installation needs to commence during the framing stage and before internal linings, claddings or building wrap are applied
  • R1405 for installations with Rinnai Infinity external VT16-VT26, XR16-XR26 and V-Series 16-24 continuous flow gas water heaters
  • R1407 for installations with Rinnai Infinity external XR32, HD200, HD250 and EF24 continuous flow gas water heaters

A Rinnai INFINITY unit inside a recess box operates at a slightly louder level than a Rinnai INFINITY installed on an outside wall.

Please bear this in mind when positioning near a bedroom as the operating noise could affect some people.

Building code compliance

Territorial authorities may have their own additional requirements regarding this type of installation. If in doubt over compliance with building codes, it is advisable they are consulted prior to installation.

General clearances

The following diagram is to assist in determining where a recess box and external continuous flow water heater can be positioned. If in doubt, consult a licensed gasfitter.
