DraughtEx has been cleverly manufactured with thousands of concealed air pockets which allows the sealant to be compressed by almost 90% of its original profile. These flexible properties allow DraughtEx to be compressed into floorboard gaps much smaller than its original form by stretching it during the installation process. Once the floorboard filler is in the gap it will expand until it fills the width of the gap.
Timber floors contract and expand throughout the course of their life. These movements cause alternative floorboard sealants such as papier-mache, wood filler and silicon to become ineffective and loose and eventually drop out. DraughtEx will mimic the movement pattern of the timber and therefore remain in place retaining insulation.
The design of DraughtEx follows extensive research and testing which has been carried out to ensure that the product is not only efficient but also aesthetically pleasing. The colour "Shadow" has been carefully developed to allow floorboard gaps to be sealed without compromising the natural appearance of finished wooden floors.
