Q: What is the difference between Draught Dodgers and EMV Perimeter Seal?
A: Great question! Both products provide a seal for the perimeter (sides and top) of an external or internal door. Draught Dodgers are a higher end product that will last many, many years. EMV, being plastic, will not have the longevity that Draught Dodgers have and will not last as long in highly exposed areas.
Q: I have sticky residue on my door from a previous attempt to draught proof, how do I get it off?
A: The best way we've found for removing residue is with methylated spirits and a cloth. Use plenty of the methylated spirits on the cloth and gently rub away the residue. Once the residue has been loosened from the surface you will find it rolls in balls that are easily wiped away. Please take care as methylated spirits can dissolve acrylic paint. Test on a small out of the way patch first.
Alternatively, if you have a very stable substrate to work with (such as powder coated aluminium), you can use turpentine instead of the methylated spirits. This is not advised if you are unsure as to what finish you currently have on your door jamb. If unsure, test in a small out of the way patch.
Q: Can I use EMV as a renter?
A: Yes, renters do not worry. EMV can easily be removed and therefore works well in rental applications. In most cases you do not even notice the EMV unless you are specifically looking for it.
Q: What is the warranty?
A: Since this is a DIY product we cannot offer a warranty on the installation. If the EMV is defective we can replace the EMV.
