Fill Gaps in Floorboards with DraughtEx

How to fill gaps in floorboards

Fill gaps in floorboards with ‘DraughtEx’; a flexible solution, which expands and compresses with the wood throughout the year.

Gaps in floorboards can be unsightly, while causing draughts and low energy efficiency. Gaps appear due to fluctuations in temperature and humidity, meaning that they change with the seasons, and therefore have traditionally been difficult to resolve.

DraughtEx is easy to fit and mess free

What is DraughtEx?

DraughtEx, the ‘seal on a reel’, is an easy-to-install floorboard gap filler, suitable for different size floor gaps. This product looks like a cable, and is easy to install, requiring no adhesive, and leaving no mess.

Once fitted, DraughtEx has a natural ‘shadow’ like appearance, and unlike other solutions, is able to remain in place due to its flexible material. It comes in three widths (thin, standard, and thick) to fit gaps of different sizes. Unsure which size to order? Sample packs, containing 1 meter of each size and an applicator, are available for testing purposes.

Gaps in floorboards causing draughts

Gaps in floorboards can cause draughts, and reduce the energy efficiency of your home.

The Energy Saving Trust estimate that insulating the floorboards on the just ground floor of a gas-heated home could save up to as £85 per year, meaning that DraughtEx quickly pays for itself.
