The Automatic Draught Blocker for Ceiling Exhaust Fans.  
When not in use, horizontally-mounted exhaust fans are literally just huge gaping holes. They let in excessive draught into your home and suck out your home heating/cooling.

Stop air leakage and save hundreds of dollars on your energy bills by draught-proofing your exhaust fans with Draftstoppa!

 

How it Works:
Draftstoppa is a device that prevents draughts from entering through horizontally-mounted exhaust fans. It has plastic butterfly valves that open automatically when the exhaust fan is switched on, and shut when the fan is switched off.

This product is used primarily on ceiling mounted exhaust fans. It can also be fitted to 3-in-1 bathroom heat lamp units (an electrician is required).



Includes:

  • One (1) Draftstoppa


Measurements/Specs:

  • Closed Height: 160mm
  • Operational Height: 200mm
  • Diameter: 350mm


Features:

  • Works to manage draughts without compromising ventilation
  • Does not interfere with the operation of the exhaust fan
  • Prevents air from entering or escaping through the exhaust fan when not in use
  • Durable
  • Australian made and owned


Tools You You Will Need For Installation:

  • Ladder
  • Flashlight/headlamp
  • Clothes you don't mind getting dirty

Frequently Asked Questions:

Q: What does this product do and how does it work?
A: DraftStoppas are installed above exhaust fans to block out excessive air leakage when exhaust fans are not in use. This product has gravity operated butterfly valves that open when the fan is in use but close when the fan is switched off, preventing unwanted airflow.


Q: How is a DraftStoppa installed?
A: The DraftStoppa comes with easy to follow instructions. Simply assemble the four components and drop it over the top of the exhaust fan. There is a notch for the fan electrical cable to pass through.


Q: Are there any things to watch out for?
A: Occasionally there are obstructions that cause fitting difficulty. The most common ones are:

- The ceiling joists are too close together to accommodate the DraftStoppa as it is slightly wider than the exhaust fan.
- There is a pipe above the exhaust fan.
- The power outlet supplying the fan has been fitted too close to the fan.


Q: Can I fit the DraftStoppa on my 3-in-1 heat lamp unit?
A: Well yes and no. Technically it is possible with the use of a special collar AND rewiring the electrical switch so that the fan is on any time the heat lamps are used. This is necessary to prevent melting the DraftStoppa. It is our view that a better approach is to replace the heat lamp unit with one that has a built-in DraftStoppa function.


Q: What if my exhaust fan is on the ground floor of a two story home?
A: Usually the DraftStoppa can still be fitted however the process is a little different. To fit the DraftStoppa into the inter-floor space (which is almost always a very draughty space) follow these steps:

- Remove the fan grill and then remove the fan from the ceiling. Let it hang by the electrical cord.
- Take the DraftStoppa and fit the flaps to each half of the casings.
- Put each half into the inter-floor space and then assemble the two halves within the inter-floor space.
- Carefully replace the exhaust fan being careful to feed the electrical cable through the notch provided in the DraftStoppa. Refix the fan into the ceiling and replace the grill.


Q: Will I still be able to use my fan?
A: This product should not prevent your fan from its natural function. If it does, then it may have inadvertently pushed into the side of the fan blades. Repositioning the DraftStoppa should clear the problem.


Q: What do I do if the product is faulty?
A: The ecoMaster return policy can be found on the website. 


Q: Is there a warranty on this product?
A: ecoMaster products carry a 2 year warranty as long as the product is installed according to our instructions.
