Older homes with character timber windows that can look nice, but have gaps that reduce their effectiveness. There are many gap filling foam seals on the market, they are only short term solutions. EVS has developed a range of unique, easy to fit, retro seals made from aerated PVC that look and feel like timber.  Pre-finished in white or timber and fitted with quality seals for a durable and lasting result that meets the requirements of the Healthy Home Standards.

EVS Draught Seal

Draught Stop for timber windows

EVS Draught stop with a timber finish works very well with clear finished timber windows. The profile can be used without any further painting but can also be painted with a suitable paint finish.

The Timber finish is not a surface veneer like other products, so it can be sanded and shaped like timber with the colour elements flowing through the whole profile.

Fitting existing hardware requires careful repositioning to ensure the mechanisms work correctly. It is recommended that you use a drill to pre-bore the screw holes to avoid cracking the Draught Stop profile.

EVS Draught Seal

Healthy Homes Draught Stopping Standard
Landlords must block any unreasonable gaps and holes in walls, ceilings, windows, floors and doors that cause noticeable draughts.

As a rule of thumb, gaps or holes with a width greater than 3mm in or around the walls, ceilings, windows, doors and floors that let air into or out of the home will usually require blocking to prevent unreasonable draughts.

This means that if the edge of a New Zealand $2 dollar coin can fit in the gap, then the gap needs to be sealed.
