A: Yes it is easy but please be sure to watch the installation video and follow the instructions.

A: It is as easy as 1, 2, 3.

  1. 1. Clean

Q: What is EMV for Aluminium Doors made of? 

A: EMV is made out of plastic, with an adhesive on the back.

 

Q: When should I use EMV? 

A: You can utilize EMV for many different uses. The most common applications are for when the original seal of aluminium sliding doors or windows is worn out, or when the gap of a hinged door is too small to apply other draught excluders.

 

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: Can EMV be used for more than aluminium doors? 

A: EMV can be used for many applications.  To find out if EMV will work for your needs, just use the search bar at the top of the page and search for "EMV". 

 

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.
