Front and Back Door Draught Proofing Kit | FAQ

Q: I’m not really sure how or where to start?
A: That is no problem at all. We have a series of ecoMasterClasses on just about every topic of energy efficiency. All the information is totally free. Click here to check it out. 

Q: What is this kit?
A: This kit contains high quality draught proofing components to treat 2 standard external doors.  There are two different components:

To help match the joinery of your door jamb and door furniture, there are 3 different colour options: 
  • Timber / Bronze draught excluder
  • White Aluminium / Silver draught excluder  
  • Black Aluminium / Black draught excluder

Q: Will I still be able to open and close my doors?
A: These products should not prevent your door from its natural function, if you have difficulty in closing your door after installation, then can we humbly suggest that you watch the installation videos in the “How to” tab. 

Q: My front door is a double door.  Is this still the right kit?
A: No, it is not. This kit is suitable for two single hinged doors only. The double doors are best treated with one of our French Door Kits.

Q: My front door is quite wide. Will this kit still work?
A: The width limitation of this kit is the width of the RP3 bottom draught excluder which is 920mm between the jams. If your door is wider than that, then you can still treat it with these components but you will need to buy them individually so that you can option the extra-long 1220mm RP3.

Q: Is it not better to fit the Draught Dodgers to the ground first and then fit the RP3 in between?
A: Technically yes, but the problem with this method is that it means that the RP3 actuator must be fitted on the angled face of the Draught Dodgers and that does not work well.
