Our Draught Proofing System
We use the best draft-proofing system on the market today. Not all gaps in a sash window are the same and can vary from 3mm to 10mm. Our draught system comes in 3 different lengths to fit any size gaps in sash windows, from 5.5mm, 8.5mm to 11.5mm. Draught proofing will be inserted into your original timber. We always try to use the original timber and rarely use new wood. More
The baton rods are removed. They are routed out to take the appropriate gauge of draught pile. The lower sash window is routed along mid and bottom rails and fitted with 11.5mm gauge draught pile.
Thermal imaging for air infiltration or heat loss
Before we install our draught proofing system we can test your windows for any signs of air infiltration or heat loss around your windows with the thermal image camera so we can pinpoint any problems unseen to the naked eye. Not all old windows are perfectly aligned so we also check the level of gaps in each window. This allows us to fit the correct gauge size of draught pile. After the installation of the draught proofing, we will then re-test your windows to make sure our draught proofing is correctly fitted and they are energy efficient. More

Draught proofing - The facts
You may be surprised, but the total airspace around the average sash window is equivalent to a hole in the wall 6 square inches in size. That’s big enough to fit your arm through. Probably big enough to crawl through if you added them all together! With all this room for manoeuvre, it is no wonder that sash windows have a tendency to rattle and allow for draughts. Draught proofing sash windows can solve all of this easily.
It is also commonplace to position a radiator directly beneath, resulting in energy and money going literally straight out the window. Not only this but, where valuable heat escapes, undesirables can make their way into your home as well.
How will draught proofing my sash windows help?
Airspace is inherent to the design of sash windows; it is necessary to allow the window to move. The ECO Sash & Case Draught Proofing System will simply fill this gap with a soft brush, creating a barrier to all of those unwanted nasties and keeping valuable heat in. Your home will instantly become a cosier, cleaner, safer environment, not to mention cheaper and greener to run.
Will it be visible?
No. Using the ECO Sash & Case Draught Proofing System, the brush strips, known as a weather fin piles, are fitted between the inner and outer frames, sealing the gap. They will literally become part of the frame. This cannot be seen unless you get very close and have the window open.
How will it affect the movement of the sash windows?
It will improve it.
During the installation process we completely remove, rehang each sash window. They will slide easily and won’t rattle. Where necessary, the frames themselves will be expertly restored by our experienced team, ready for draught proofing. Consider it a full service!
Will this require planning permission?
You won’t need planning permission for this; and thanks to a government green initiative, only 5% VAT is charged for this service. It is also strongly advised by the Energy Saving Trust.
