"Stormguard’s metal door brush draught excluder seals gaps of up to 25mm, can be cut to size and comes complete with fixings and pre-drilled holes.

It’s a effective way to deal with draughts, and has been praised by reviewers for being ‘easy to fit’ and making ‘a huge difference’ to inefficient doors.

It comes in a gold or alumninium finish, and there’s also a smaller version for gaps of up to 15mm. Just measure the space under your door and you’re good to go!"

"Draught issues can be overcome by routering out the edge of the locking side of the door, hinge side of the door and the head of your internal doors with intumescent brush strips.
Once fitted to the door, the brush should engage with the door frame by brushing against it to eliminate draught."

"Charles for an internal door you can get a draught seal for around the door"

"If having a UPVC door fitted then draught proofing should come as standard. There should be no need for additional items to be fitted. Mostly all UPVC/composite door company’s are ok obviously avoid the really cheap ones for obvious reasons! If it’s a wooden door then a different approach is required in the form of draft excluders. Avoid the cheap foam types. Screwfix or toolstation have a decent selection again avoid the cheap stuff it doesn’t last. The best ones are the ones that have a barb that fits into a groove on the inside of the frame creating an air tight seal. These are a little bit harder to do if there isn’t a groove already there but not impossible for a joiner or competent person. Hope this helps."
