Door Brush Seal - Draught Excluder - RP15 - 25 mm Brush - FAQ
Frequently Asked Questions:
Q: What is it?
A: The RP15 is a self adhesive door draught excluder that has a 25mm brush seal that attaches to the bottom of doors. The aluminium part is extra wide which makes it easy to screw fix the RP15 if that is necessary.
Q: How does it work?
A: The RP15 is a self-adhesive door brush seal that can be cut to size. Typically it is used on the bottom of hinged doors and provides instant protection for doors with a larger bottom gap. It does a great job preventing draughts from coming in under internal doors. The nylon brush is sufficiently dense to stop most draught.
Q: What doors is the RP15 suitable for?
A: The RP15 is suitable for several applications:
- It is suitable for use on the bottom of hinged doors where a longer brush is needed. It is best used on internal doors but can also be used on external doors however there may be some air flow through the brush during weather with high winds. (Consider an RP3 for s single door or Draught Dodgers for French Doors for double doors).
- Can be used successfully on the bottom of hinged doors that open over short pile carpet.
- It is also suitable for draught proofing external sliding doors. In this situation it is usually fitted flat on the tread so that the brush rubs gently on the face of the door and similarly on the head of the door. In these cases the RP15 should be screw fixed. (Screws are not included).
- In some cases The RP15 can also be used on the back edge of external sliding doors to seal against the timber edge of the sidelight. (RP5 can also be used for this purpose).
- When used externally the RP15 should be screw fixed. The self adhesive should not be relied upon when exposed to weather.
Q: How do I install it and how hard is it to install?
A: The RP15 is relatively easy to install especially with the instructional video under the “Install” tab that will give you step by steps instructions of how to install correctly.

Q: How do I know it has been installed properly?
A: The door should work normally and freely. Note especially when the door changes from opening to closing that there is no undue force required.
Q: What tools do I need to screw fix the RP15?
A: Screw fixing the RP15 is not difficult but you will need screws and some tools. Here are the tools we suggest:
- A cordless drill. You will need this to drill clearance holes in the RP15 so that the screw thread will drop through easily through the hole drilled. You will also need this to drill a pilot hole in the joinery to make it easier to screw in the screws without risk of splitting the timber.
- Two drill bits. Usually you would have a set but for this job you only need two. One drill bit is to drill the clearance holes in the RP15. Typically this would be 4.5 or 5mm depending on the screws you are using. The second would typically be 2.5mm and that is used to drill small pilot holes in the joinery. A pilot hole makes it easy to install the screw.
- A cordless driver is handy but a regular screw driver is also adequate for inserting the screws. If you are using a cordless driver take care not to over-drive the screws.
