Here is how you can custom colour your powder coated aluminum Draught Dodgers.


Q: How does the draught dodger work? Will I still be able to open and close my windows after this is installed?
A: Yes, you will still be able to open and close your window. Draught Dodgers work by adding brush seals onto the bottom and sides of the lower sash of your double hung windows to provide an effective seal to block unwanted draughts.

There is also a center “V” seal (EMV) that stops the draught at the join between the upper and lower sashes.

Q: I installed this myself, and the window won’t open properly, what should I do?
A: Assuming that the window was able to open properly before the installation, the most likely cause is that the EMV seal is catching on the window latch. When this happens, the back of the EMV can hook into the latch keeper mounted on the upper sash. If this is the case, use scissors or a craft knife and cut a “V” into the back edge of the EMV at the latch keeper. The product will still function properly when doing this. Please be sure to watch the installation video carefully as it shows how to cut the notch before installing the EMV.

Q: If the upper sash of my window opens, how do I draught proof it?
A: In most cases, the upper sash is painted shut. If your upper sash still functions, draught proofing it will require another Draught Dodgers For Double-Hung windows, which can be fitted upside down on the outside of the frame. If the outside of the window is in full weather, it’s a good idea to mechanically fix the Draught Dodgers.  For timber Draught Dodgers, use small brads to nail them onto the frame. If you have the all-weather aluminum Draught Dodgers for Double-Hung Windows then fix with small screws.

Q: After it is installed, is it permanent?
A: It is a permanent solution that will eliminate unwanted most of the air leakage when installed correctly according to the instructions. Be sure to follow the instructions on cleaning and pressing out to ensure good adhesion.

Q: What happens if I put it on the wrong way round?
A: You will need to take it off and buy a replacement Draught Dodgers kit. Be sure to watch the instructional video on the website to avoid this mistake.

Q: What do I do if I install the product and feel no difference?
A: If you have installed the product and do not feel a difference, there are two possible reasons.

  • You may not have installed the product correctly according to the instructions.
  • There may be more significant draughts in your home. You would have to find out where they are and decide how to treat them. The best way to do this is to subscribe to our Find and Fix My Draughts course.  This will guide you through your whole home to identify and then how to treat the draughts.
  • Alternatively, you may want professional help to identify ways to make your home more efficient. Here are some home assessors who may be able to help you.

Q: If it keeps in warm air in winter, will my home overheat in summer?
A: Draught Dodgers are designed to eliminate uncontrolled ventilation. By draught proofing, every opening is gently and effectively sealed off to keep unwanted air leakage at bay, prevent the outdoor temperature from affecting your indoor comfort, and minimize the need for additional heating and cooling. Draught proofing will prevent the hot summer winds entering your home. When combined with other energy efficiency measures, your home can be a cool haven in summer without excessive dependence on air conditioning.

Q: How do I know if it fits perfectly in place?
A: To install the product in the perfect place, use the installer packer in the kit which ensures that the brush applies the correct amount of pressure against the sash.

Q: How long will it take for me to install this product?
A: The first time you install this product is going to take the longest, but if you have multiple window this time will get quicker.

It takes an experienced installer about 35 minutes per window, so expect to take about 1 hour the first time you install the product.

Q: Can I collect Draught Dodgers?
A: Yes, you can collect your order from our Preston Collection point.  Opening days and hour restrictions apply.

Q: I want to paint my draught dodgers. What should I watch out for?
A: Draught dodgers can easily be 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.

 Q: What do I do if the product is faulty?

A: The ecoMaster return policy can be found on the website. 


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.

Recommend this product

Have tried other products to try and draft proof our windows with very limited success. The draft dodger for double hung windows is easy to install and works as advertised. I am extremely happy with the results and look forward to see how it performs over the long term.

Hi Garry,

Thank you for your great review! We are thrilled you enjoy our Double Hung Window Kit and can't wait to serve you again!

John Clark
Perfect solution for rattling windows

The kits are very easy to install and very effective. At a cost of $70 per window it's a very cheap solution not to mention the energy savings. Very Happy

Thanks for the feedback John!

Quentin G.
Inconsistent quality

Bought four packs of draught dodgers. The quality was inconsistent with some of the brushes sticking out from the wood further in places, and the wood finish quality being uneven on some, which was important to me as was finishing the raw timber dodgers in varnish. Not show stoppers, and kept hoods, just a bit disappointing given the premium price.

Marcus B.
Draught dodgers

Didn't need the timber, just the felt strips as I have old windows with ornate timber trim. consequently had to buy the complete kit only to throw out the timber components. Should offer just the felt seals as an option.

Hi Marcus..

This is actually a fair point.. Definitely taking note of this, and will be shortly offering this as a solution.. Thank you so much for this review!

Clive W.
Draught Dodgers for Double Hung Windows

The sash windows in my bedroom spent their time rattling the passage of street noise and draughts. After failures with other products, I bought two sash window kits from EcoMaster as my final attempt at a cure, short of replacing the windows altogether. And, with minimum fuss and maximum effect, the kits did exactly what they were supposed to do. With the video instructions, they are easy to install and the quality of design, materials and workmanship was obvious.

Hi Clive,

It's always wonderful to hear that our customers find the solutions that they sought for in the products that we offer.. We're always glad to be of help.. Thank you for this wonderful review.. =)
