Draught Dodgers for Doors is an all-weather door seal that keeps out drafts without sacrificing aesthetics. This Australian-made kit uses high-quality materials to durably seal variable door gaps from top to bottom. With basic tools, you can install this foolproof draft blocker on any door for a lifetime of protection against intrusive air leaks.

Key Benefits:

Effective Draught Proofing: The best solution to seal the sides and top of your door (the top and both sides) against drafts. This is important because a door should have a tight seal on all sides to prevent drafts from entering.

Can help to reduce outside noise: While Draught Dodgers have not undergone acoustic testing, our clients consistently report that their homes become much quieter after the installation of Draught Dodgers.

Draught Dodgers also reduce dust, pollen, smoke, bugs and insects: The quality seal continuously safeguards your doors from the elements outside.

Designed, Owned and Manufactured in Australia: Since 2003, this “quality obsessed” Australian family has run the business and conducted their own research and development to achieve great outcomes.



  • No more door draughts from the sides and top of your door
    One of the new solutions that will draught seal the sides and top of your door. Because a door has 4 sides and all of them should be sealed.
  • Draught Dodgers help to reduce outside noise
    Draught Dodgers have not been acoustically tested, but all our clients tell us that their homes are much quieter after Draught Dodgers have been installed.
  • Draught Dodgers also reduce dust, pollen, smoke, bugs and insects
    The quality seal works all day every day to seal your doors from outside conditions.
  • Seals gaps up to 10 mm and caters for uneven gaps easily
    Draught Dodgers will flex to perfectly fit a door that is warped and, because it is not sitting in the door jamb, will cater for doors with uneven gaps.
  • Blends in with the door jamb for a seamless look
    Choose from raw timber which can be stained to match your joinery, or white or black powder coated aluminium.
  • Does not interfere with the operation of your door
    Unlike most other door seals, Draught Dodgers are not crushed in the door each time it is closed. This means that your door will operate with ease and you will not need to replace Draught Dodgers.
  • Draught Dodgers will not fall off your door or come loose
    Unlike most other door seals, Draught Dodgers will not fall off on the first hot day. Cheap perimeter seals use glues with low adhesion which tend to fall off on the first hot day.
  • Can be painted or stained to match the door frame
    Raw timber Draught Dodgers can be stained or painted to match your joinery.  The powder coated aluminium Draught Dodgers can be painted with enamel paint.
  • Minimal tools required for installation

 Pro Tips:

  1. Draught Dodgers for Doors are most effective when combined with a good quality bottom of door “Draught Excluder” such as these:
    1. Door Draught Excluder (RP3) - the most popular Draught Excluder
    2. Door Draught Excluder (RP35) - if prams, walkers or wheelchairs feature in your home.
  2. If you are going to install a Draught Excluder on the bottom of the door as well as Draught Dodgers as your perimeter seal, please install the Draught Excluder first.

 Care Instructions:

  • No maintenance is required for your Draught Dodgers.
  • If painting your Draught Dodgers in place, please remove the seals first. Refit them once paint has dried.


Draught Dodger Mouldings have the appropriate angle cuts to make it easy for you to achieve a great finish.  You only need to square cut to length.

In your kit there will be one moulding that has square ends - “Straight Cut”. That moulding is used for the Head of the door.

The Draught Dodger mouldings for the sides of the doors already have “Angle Cuts” to fit the left hand side (which is coloured Green on the end of the moulding) or the right hand side (which is coloured Red on the end of the moulding).

Q: What are Draught Dodgers?
A: Draught Dodgers are an award winning range of architectural quality perimeter seals designed to effectively and permanently eliminate air leaking in and around doors and windows - door seals that actually work!

Q: What does Draught Dodgers for Doors do? 
A: Draught Dodgers for Doors helps seal the top, and sides of your internal or external doors from draughts.

Q: Are Draught Dodgers for Doors easy to install?
A: Yes, the pre-cut angles and the included fitting packer means that you only need to cut them to length in order to get a great finish and a perfect seal.

Q: When might Draught Dodgers not be appropriate?
A: When installing on a single external door here are some things to watch out for:

  1. If your door is fitted with a doorknob that is very close to the door jamb, the Draught Dodgers may cause difficulty in operating the doorknob. The Draught Dodgers add 11mm to the side of the jamb and this may impinge on the space normally used by your fingers operating the doorknob. If you have a door lever handle this is not a concern.
  2. In some period homes, there can be an ornate skirting fitted around the bottom of the front door jamb. Draught Dodgers can only butt up to the skirting and cannot be fitted over it.
  3. Similarly, in such ornate period front door jambs, the top of the door jamb can be a very thin ornate moulding. In this case, the top section of Draught Dodger cannot be fitted to the jamb in the regular way. It can however be fitted to the top face of the door such that the seal presses onto the ornate moulding when the door is closed. This is an effective method however aesthetic considerations may preclude this application.
  4. If your external door jamb has a screen door stopbead fitted onto it then it's best to check that there is enough space for the Draught Dodgers to fit between the door side of the stopbead and the face of the front door. You will need a minimum of 22mm in order to fit the Draught Dodgers correctly.

Q: What are Draught Dodgers for Doors made of?
A: Raw Timber Draught Dodgers for Doors are made from a high quality, sustainably harvested Tassie Oak. White and Black Draught Dodgers for Doors are made from powder coated aluminium. Both are fitted with a high quality vinyl compressive seal, and an extremely durable adhesive tape.

Q: Where are Draught Dodgers for Doors made?
A: The timber for Raw Timber Draught Dodgers is sustainably harvested in Australia. The aluminium Draught Dodgers are also made in Australia. We specifically source those materials from Australia.

Q: Do you have a recommended installer for Draught Dodgers?
A: A recommended installer is highly location dependent. To find out if we have a recommended installer in your area please contact us or call 1300 326 627

Q: I want to paint my Draught Dodgers. What should I watch out for?
A: Raw Timber Draught Dodgers can easily be stained or painted either before fitting or after fitting. Please note that only the timber part of the Draught Dodgers should be painted. Do not attempt to paint the seals. To ensure a good result, apply undercoat, sand, first coat, sand and final coat. If painting after installation, be sure to remove the seals first. Keep them in a safe place and refit them after painting is complete. Aluminium Draught Dodgers can also be successfully painted. Check out the detailed video in the How To section.

Q: Can I get a sample?
A: Unfortunately, we do not have samples of Draught Dodgers available.

Q: Do I have to use the fitting packer?
A: The fitting packer has been provided to ensure the Draught Dodgers are fitted correctly. Not using the fitting packer will most likely result in an improper installation.

Q: Can we have Draught Dodgers 2.7m long?
A: We do not have the ability to manufacture, or ship pieces that are longer than 2350mm. To draught proof a door that is larger than 2350mm you will need to join 2 mouldings together during installation.

Q: I want to treat my front door and my back door. Should I get a 2 door set or 2 x 1 door sets?
A: If your doors are single standard height doors (up to 2350mm tall), then a two door set will be sufficient. Otherwise, you will need 2 x 1 door sets. You might like to consider the Front and Back Door kit as a great way to save money on your materials.  Alternatively, we offer an External Door kit to seal a single external door.

Q: Can I get white Draught Dodgers with a brown seal?
A: Yes you can.  Select White Draught Dodgers, and a Custom Order Charge, then add in the notes that you would like brown seals with your white draught dodgers.   Alternatively you can select Timber Draught Dodgers with a white seal and add a Custom Order Charge

Q: I have damaged one of the Draught Dodgers trying to install it. Can I get a replacement?
A: Yes. You can order spare Draught Dodgers here.  Note that is just one moulding - it does not include the compressive seal. 

Q: The Draught Dodgers are stuck in the wrong place, now I can’t put the seals in?
A: Unfortunately that is quite problematic. We provide installation videos to ensure a quality result. Draught Dodger mouldings can be removed from the door, but the self adhesive tape will not restick. You can re-fit the Draught Dodgers with brads or screws, but make sure to use the fitting packer and PLEASE watch the installation video.

Q: Will Draught Dodgers help to reduce noise?
A: Draught Dodgers will help reduce noise. It has not been tested for acoustic performance. However, if you specifically need an acoustic door seal, then you should consider the RP78 Acoustic Perimeter Seal


Q: Can I collect my order?
A: Yes you can!  A “Ready for Pickup” email will be sent to you when you order is ready to be collected.  Please click this link for the Click and Collect details.  Note:  this Collection Centre is in Preston Victoria, NOT Prestons in NSW. 

Q: When will my order be despatched?
A: Generally, your order will be despatched within 2 to 3 business days.    

Q: Will my order be tracked?
A: Yes!  When your order is consigned, you will receive a tracking number that will show you where your order is and its expected delivery date.  Track your order here

Please note: Orders with two or more items may arrive in separate parcels with no additional shipping charge

Q: When will my order be delivered?
A: All over-sized orders are picked, packed and despatched within 3 business days.  It will be delivered by a specialist courier that specifically handles oversized items that cannot be delivered via Australia Post. Please note that this is a specialist courier NOT an express courier. Our experience with the specialist courier varies depending upon the delivery location.   Clearly delivery times will fluctuate at peak shipping times such as Christmas.

Q: Authority to leave?
A: The standard courier delivery option is "Authorised to Leave". That means that if there is no one home when the courier arrives, your order will be left at your address. If this is not appropriate, please advise when you place your order for alternative arrangements to be made.

Q: What happens if my order gets lost during transit?
A: Occasionally we have had orders go missing. ecoMaster has solid procedures in place and photograph every order that leaves our warehouse.  If a delivery date appears to be beyond expectation, we will raise a query on your behalf.  If your order cannot be found during transit, we will send a replacement.  

Q: What happens if my order is stolen after delivery?
A: If your order is stolen from your home after delivery, please raise a Police report. 

Q: How do I make my freight costs cheaper? 
A: We hear you!  Oversized items are expensive to transport.  Any item over 1.5m long carries an additional $10 charge by the courier.   

Potential cost effective freight alternatives are:

  • Share the costs of freight with a neighbour
  • Buy all your long items (such as Draught Dodgers) in one order (a second tube going to the same address is free)
  • Collect your order from Preston Victoria 

If you live regionally or in a rural location, freight costs will be high.  Do you have an address in a town where your order can be safely delivered?   We also live regionally and understand the frustration with the high costs of freight!!


Q: What is the product warranty for the Draught Dodger range? 
A: The Draught Dodger range has a product warranty of 5 years, but can be effective for much longer than that.  Our own home has had Draught Dodgers on our front door for nearly 20 years.  It is in perfect condition and still doing its job - beautifully. 

Q: What is the installation warranty for Draught Dodgers?
A: As Draught Dodgers are a DIY product there is no warranty on installation.  

However, in order to get the best value from your investment, here are a few tips that will help: 

  • Please, PLEASE watch the installation videos before you proceed.  The packer has been designed and included to ensure that the Draught Dodgers are fitted in EXACTLY the right place. 
  • Thoroughly clean the surface that your Draught Dodgers are to be adhered to.  In situations where Draught Dodgers have 'failed', this is 95% of the reason. 
  • The other reason is the type of paint on the door jamb.  Very oily paints make longer term adhesion quite challenging.  In this case, fix Draught Dodgers to your door with brads instead of the self adhesive strip.

Q: What do I do if I have a problem with this product?  
A: Refer to our Returns / Refunds page [Learn More].  Our Research and Development team will be keenly interested to learn of any product failure and will want images and samples the product (if possible), so they can determine what the cause of failure was.    

If you have any questions, contact the ecoMaster team.  We are all ex-installers and have done this work thousands of times before.  We are here to help you.

LOVE love this Product

I show most of my customers how good this product is after painting there home. i have on selling this product for one year now. I have fitted to my own house to.

We hope it continues to provide you and your customers with great results. Thank you for choosing our product and for recommending it to others. We truly do appreciate your business and look forward to serving you again! Have a fantastic day!

Works great for my uneven door!

Tried in-jamb seals from a hardware shop for the front door; abject failure due to uneven gap. These Draught Dodger seals work beautifully for that! Easy to install too, although I should've stained them before installing (like it shows on the video.... oops).

Do check you have enough clearance from handle to doorway - these were fine on my front door, but I don't have enough clearance to put them on the back door, because the handle's too close to the edge of the door. Fortunately the in-jamb seals work great on the back door as it has a nice even gap all round.

Curious as to how long the adhesive on the tape lasts; it seems pretty solid. I cleaned carefully and gave it a good few hours to cure properly before loading.

Hi Minz,

Thank you for your review of our Draught Dodgers for Doors. We are so pleased to hear that it worked well for your uneven door and that it was easy to install.

In terms of clearance, we do recommend checking the distance from the handle to the doorway before installing. As for the adhesive tape, it is designed to be long-lasting and durable. We recommend cleaning the surface thoroughly before applying and giving it enough time to cure properly, as you did.

Thank you again for your feedback. We hope it continues to provide you with the desired results.

Kate Tan
Excellent door seal

Good quality and very clever design. I had my handyman help me to install it, and he said the video was easy to follow. The little piece of board that helps the installer measure the width of the rubber seal made all the difference, he said. Also, great service from Eco master when I rang with questions before I purchased

Hi Kate,

we sincerely thank you for your encouraging words and positive feedback. It is great to know that you and your handy man love our 'Draught Dodgers for Doors'.
The team here at ecoMaster put a lot of effort into the videos to help make the install process as simple as possible. We will definitely be sharing your feedback with them. Thanks again!
