It’s getting colder!

As we all know and feel autumn is coming around swiftly. The local Garden Center starts to display Christmas decorations and we ask ourselves where this year has disappeared to.

Soon enough warm clothes will have to be dug out and the heating needs to be turned on again. With temperatures dropping outside and the warm air inside floorboard gaps are starting to grow again, letting in cold draughts.

Especially, when it is cold outside the thought of a warm and cosy home is very appealing. Nobody likes to come home to a cold and draughty house.
We have made it our mission to stop gaps between floorboards that let cold draughts invade your rooms.

Many different methods of gap filling have been presented to us since we started dealing in gap insulation. There is the professional way of lifting the floorboards and fitting them together so no gaps are left open. This involves a lot of work and costs. Other methods include mixing your own gap filler from sawdust and glue or even applying papier-mache to floorboard gaps. Both methods are messy and the filler falls out of the floorboard gap after a while.

Why not choose the easy option and use a flexible floorboard gap filler that is cost-effective, easy to use and and will not fall out?

come in time and again and show us that we are on the right way.

DraughtEx also stops window and skirting board draughts

We call Draughtex a floorboard gap filler but it can be used as draught excluder on sash windows and skirting boards as well.

The gaps between floorboards and skirting boards regularly cause substantial draughts. In the past these skirting board gaps were sealed with coconut fibre or hemp. Draughtex seals these skirting board gaps much better due to its elastic properties.

To seal the gaps between floorboards and the skirting boardsĀ  start in one of the corners by tucking the end of the DraughtEx into the gap with the help of some scissors or another appropriate tool. Once you have worked your way a few centimeters away from the corner you can use the applicator to apply DraughtEx evenly into the gap. We recommend cutting DraughtEx at the end of each length of the room instead of using one long strip to go all around the room.

Sealing sash windows against draught can be really difficult. However, pushing our Draughtex sealant into the gaps along the length of the window and between the panes will stop these draughts for good! Draughtex can best be fitted around windows by using a blunt knife.
