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.
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.

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.
