Draft or Draught?

This is a question often raised by our customers when they are searching for a floorboard gap filler and try to type the right search term into Google… What is the right spelling of the word and why?

The Oxford Dictionary advises:
“Do not confuse draft with draught. Draft means ‘a first version of a piece of writing’ or ‘make a first version of a piece of writing’ (I drafted a letter of complaint), whereas draught chiefly means ‘a current of air’ (heavy curtains cut out draughts).”

Our product is named DraughtEx, as it cuts out cold draughts between floorboard gaps. Nevertheless, even our office staff occasionally spell our floorboard filler DraftEx.

Other typical misspellings having been used in the past were:
Draghtex, Drfatex, Draughtek,  Draughtx, Drartee, drughtex
(Quite often the reason for misspellings is not the absence of spelling skills but furious typing on a keyboard).

However, whatever your spelling of the product’s name is going to be, we promise to send you the right product and that you will be very satisfied with a suddenly draught-free floor!

Happy Birthday DraughtEx!

One year ago DraughtEx was introduced to the UK. The first year has been full of positive surprises and new developments:

About three years ago we started to sell floorboard insulation products. At the beginning of 2010 our MD Harry Dewick-Eisele decided that it was time to develop our own floorboard gap insulation product based on the experience we had made in the previous two years.

Soon all ideas and plans came together and on the 18th of March 2010 we were able to introduce a revolutionary new product to the market: Draughtex

In the next few months we watched with amazement how the floorboard gap sealant was taken up by the market and even through the summer sales were rising.

To find out how customers are getting along using and fitting DraughtEx we  email a customer survey to everybody who places an order with us. Based on the feedback given so far we launched two new versions of DraughtEx floor board gap fillers and redesigned our applicator to make it easier to handle the sealant. The results are warmer homes and happy customers.

We want to even further improve the service we offer. Please tell us any suggestions you might have and we will try our best to introduce your ideas. To help this communication we have joined Facebook to make it even easier to leave feedback and share your experiences with us: visit DraughtEx Floorboard Gap Insulation in Facebook.

DraughtEx customer survey winner December 2010

In December the happy winner of our Draughtex Customer Survey Competition for £25 worth of shopping vouchers was Fiona B. of  Bristol. Having completed the customer survey questionnaire she was entered into the prize draw.

Fiona said:  “I was thrilled to win the customer survey competition and really sorry I haven’t replied earlier to thank you properly. We are up to our eyeballs in building work at home. I was hoovering the latest layer of dust off the kitchen floor with unusual vigour and enthusiasm and knocked the iron off the ironing board onto the floor where it broke into pieces. Checked my emails and found that I’d won! The vouchers were put to good use – so thanks again!”

DraughtEx installation video released

DraughtEx is an easy to install and efficient floorboard gap sealant and to provide as much information as possible we have developed a DraughtEx installation video.

The video covers the installation of DraughtEx between floorboards in general and into small floorboard gaps in particular. It explains how the floorboard gaps can be cleaned of debris and how the floorboard gap filler is started off underneath the skirting board. The video also shows how the draught exclusion can be stretched to be fitted into thinner floorboard gaps.
