How to Fill Draughty Sash Window Gaps
The natural gaps around sash windows create cold draughts and allow significant heat to be lost which can often lead to chilly and uncomfortable rooms and increased heating bills during the winter months.
Traditional window seals usually have to be glued to the side of windows or frames and get stripped off when the sash window is opened or closed. They are generally not effective for windows that no longer open or on uneven surfaces. Gapseal is a proven sash window gap filler, designed to reduce the cold draughts and improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.

Suitable for Different Size Gaps
Gapseal is the best material to fill gaps around sash windows as its flexible properties allow it to be compressed into gaps much smaller than its original profile, enabling you to fill window gaps between 2 and 7mm.
Gapseal is supplied with a free applicator and is available in lengths of 10m which is enough to seal around 2 to 3 average sized sash windows.
How to seal gaps around your sash windows without compromising the overall look? Our specially formulated Magnolia™ colour compliments windows with a white, cream or light brown finish but the seal can be used in sash windows of any colour.

Fantastic Energy Savings
The total gap length around a sash window can reach up to 4m in length and has an average gap width of about 2mm. This is the equivalent of having a hole the size of a down pipe in your wall and can result in significant heat loss.
Stopping cold air from being drawn into a room and preventing heat loss will make your rooms feel more comfortable and can reduce your energy bills and CO2 contribution.
Do You Have Draughty Floorboards Gaps?
Cold draughts created by the gaps between floorboards can also lead to chilly and uncomfortable rooms and increased heating bills during the winter months. Even rooms that have carpet and underlay fitted often have gaps between the skirting board and the floorboards that allow significant heat to be lost.
Traditional floorboard gap filling techniques and products are time consuming, messy to install and will often fall out over time. DraughtEx is a proven floorboard gap filler, designed to reduce the cold draughts and improve the comfort and energy efficiency of your home.
