When working for a door company and writing about doors all the time, I find myself looking at products related to doors and finding new and interesting things that complement and enhance doors. This week I have been looking at draught excluders for timber doors and I am surprised to find that there is such a wide selection of options available.
When I was young we used to have a sausage dog style draught excluder in our home. This was an essential item in our entrance hall to keep the cold out as there was always a frosty draught around our front door. Back then the sausage dog design was pretty standard and there weren't many other alternatives available. These days there are loads of stylish options for keeping the cold out including patriotic flags, various different animals and a range of welcoming messages. It seems that many people are making their own draught excluders and there are various knitting patterns and designs to copy.
I don't require any draught excluders for my home now as I have good quality, well fitted doors throughout. If you are sick of your draughty door or want to avoid the need for a draught excluder, then take a look at the wide collection of good quality doors at Doorsan. Fitting your doors correctly will also help to avoid those cold draughty gaps. Hanging an internal door is fairly straightforward, however you should be competent at DIY if you are planning to do this yourself. Normally we would suggest you get a joiner to complete the work. You need to take care measuring for your new door and you may need to slightly trim the door to size, check with Kershaws about the maximum tolerances allowed for each door style.
