Do it once... Do it right!

How often have you seen a door that has a gap that ranges from no narrow to wide that allows light and massive draughts. The common solution has been to try and layer foam tape on top of each other plug the gaps. The result is only temporary as these seals often fall off after a short time.  What is the cost of getting your property maintenance company to redo failed foam seals? It is better to pay a little more for a quality solution and do the job properly and know that you wont have to return over and over again to fix up failed foam seals.

EVS Draught Stops the long term solution

Doors can open either outwards or inwards and the seals can be more or less exposed to the weather. EVS Draught seals are an ideal solution as they are made from durable water proof materials that can withstand extreme weather conditions such as wind and rain. They can be left in their pre finished colour or painted to match the rest of the door frame. It is recommended that pre-finished timber profiles are painted with suitable UV protection to avoid fading.

Step by Step Draught Stop Installation

The installation steps are suggested for installing EVS Draught Stops for a typical Single Door. Each window may have different hardware or timber structures and installation may need to modified to suit your specific window requirements 

EVS Draught Seal


You can use common home DIY tools such as a small mitre saw with a fine tooth blade or a fine tooth handsaw. You will also need a good tape measure, screw drivers, a sharp pencil, and gap fillers

EVS Draught Seal

Mark out

Mark out guide lines around the door frame using the small block on the sides and the wide block on the base with the window in a closed position.

EVS Draught Seal


Clean the edges so they free of grease, dust and loose flaking paint. Make sure they are thoroughly dried before applying the edges seals

EVS Draught Seal

Measure up

Measure between the inside faces and transfer the measurements to the top side of the Draught Stop profiles. Make the size a tight fit so if necessary you can trim the length shorter.

EVS Draught Seal

Trim Ends

The top two Draught profiles are cut at 90° to fit the full width. The lower Draught seals are trimmed at 45° miter cuts to form a nice joint.

EVS Draught Seal

Peel and Stick

Peel the beginning 10cm back tape of from your bottom section and press it firmly into marked position then pull back the rest of the backing tape and press down firmly.

EVS Draught Seal

Fit into corners 

Place each side into the correct position that has been marked out earlier. Do not pin the profiles yet in case further trimming is required.

EVS Draught Seal

Surround Installation

Install the top and sides on the door frame which may be on the interior or the exterior of the door. If it is the exterior face then it is recommended that you seal or paint the edge to prevent moisture penetration between the seal and the frame.

EVS Draught Seal

Base Installation

Install the draught stop across the base of the door if it opens outwards and closes against a raised up sill. If the door opens inwards over carpet or an uneven floor then you will need a Kick-Up seal rather than the V-Seal supplied.

Gap Fill Corners

Acrylic gap filler like ‘No-More-Gaps’ can be used to fill the mitre joints. Use a damp cloth to clean the area for a seamless result.
