Description

What are the benefits of installing this Letterbox Draught Excluder?

A bit like with our chimneys, have an open letter box is like having a small open window, drawing warm air out of your home and allowing cold air in. We can plug our chimneys with a Chimney Sheep® so why not draught-proof our letterboxes too with a letterbox draught excluder?

Doing so will:

  • Save you money – whilst your letterbox is often overlooked as a serious source of concern when it comes to draughts, if you are keeping a close eye on your energy bills, every little helps!
  • Make your home more energy-efficient – installing a letterbox draught excluder into your home will make your home more eco-friendly by preventing warm air from escaping and cold air from invading. This means your heating system will no longer need to work as hard to reach the temperature which you desire.
  • Ensure your home is warm, cosy and dry– stopping warm air from escaping and cold air getting in will help to keep your home toasty and dry. Rather important on those cold and rainy winter evenings in front of the TV!

Each of our letterbox draught excluders is made in the UK by Stormguard who is one of the UK’s leading manufacturers of draught excluders for doors and windows, so you know it is going to be good!

How else can I draught-proof my house?

You may have guessed but we are rather big fans of draught-proofing and there is good reason. IT WORKS whilst being easy, cost-effective and a pretty quick way for you to feel warmer.

If you have a house with an open chimney we would always suggest draught-proofing your chimney first. It is often the biggest source of heat loss in homes with the Building Research Establishment (BRE) stating that 80 cubic metres of air is lost out of a chimney per hour. The best way to draught-proof your chimney is with one of our removable chimney draught excluders, a Chimney Sheep®.

Your house may have lots of other draught sources too, so how do you deal with those? Well, you can track down all those pesky draughts with a Smoke Pencil. The most common though are windows and doors which can be easily fixed. Take a look at some of our other draught-proofing measures like our keyhole covers and door draught excluders which will ensure you keep your warm air in your home where it belongs.

    Stops the drafts

    I am pleased with this as it stops the draft, the brushes do fall out if bulky post comes through but I’ve got the knack of putting them back in so its ok

  2. Miss K

    :)

    Was easy to install and looks great. Cheaper than Homebase.

  3. malcolm french

    Working well.

    Well made products and fast delivery, easy to fit with 4 screws.

  4. Tracey Milne

    Good item and good value

    I installed this on the inside of my door to replace broken one. Item isn’t bad, easy to install, sturdy and good value for money however a little bit tough to get mail through as the brushes trap the mail flap (opens inward) that’s attached to the outside of the door therefore anyone passing can see or take my mail on show. However an all round good item

  5. PC

    Strongly built and easy to mount

    Strongly built with good quality materials and easy to install with its provided screws. Recommended.

  6. brewer

    Heavy Duty Letter Box Cover

    The product appears robust when first seen. However if the door opening is smaller than the flap (as in my case)then the brushes present a lot of resistance to letters being pushed through. The brushes then protrude a little and the spring is not sufficient to fully close the flap which needs manual intervention to fully close it. The bottom edge of the product is quite flimsy and tends to lift away from the door frame, again probably because the brushes are too stiff compared with the spring. Overall the product is O.K but could be improved.

  7. Dougal

    Makes a good seal and really looks good.

    Bought as a direct replacement for a similar item which had finally fallen off. It is plastic of course, but quite thick and robust. It gives a really good seal so keeps out any chill winds. I am not sure the postman likes it as the spring is very strong: but it certainly does the job.

  8. Claire

    It does the job

    The letter box draught excluder does the job. It arrived in good time. One of the supplied screws snapped when attaching to the door, so had to use one of our own & there was a small scratch on the gold metal, but happy enough and value for money I would say.

  9. Joanna

    Solid!! Value for money!!

    Arrived quickly. Fitted and I’m happy with it.

    Letterbox of Delights

    Great item, fits perfectly and was on the door in less than 5 minutes! Sturdy with a strong spring closer to keep wind and rain out. Excellent value for money.

  11. Manna

    Possible improvements

    Screws only at ends of letterbox, lightweight construction, needs more support than this as letterbox bends when heavy mail is delivered. Otherwise okay. Have glued brushes in place following earlier reviews.

  12. Amazon Customer

    Powerful brushes

    I wanted to to use this as an internal draught stop behind the exterior letter box cover but the brushes are too stiff. No worries, popped out the brushes, added a little foam at the sides and letterbox draughts are now greatly reduced, and Postie can still deliver :)

    Letterbox problem solved

    When our letter box broke on the inside ( a combination of post people shoving things through that were clearly too big and dogs bouncing against the door trying to catch said post) I was really pleased to find this as it seems that our front door is narrower than newer ones. Hence new letterbox sets are too deep to fit. I didn’t really want to have to buy a new front door either. This was the answer. It was easy to fit and the quality is not too bad. The only negative (my other half thinks I’m too fussy) is that when fitted, the flap itself is not completely flat. I couldn’t work out what was stopping it from lying flat at the bottom so I gave up. It still works fine and the gap at the bottom when the flap is down is barely noticeable. Other than that, it has solved our letterbox problem.

    Good draughtproofing and easily fitted

    I wanted a letterbox cover with a lift up flap because I’ve had problems with inward hinging ones needing some carpentry on the door or new bolt holes in the past . About 10 years ago I purchased the exact same flap, and (probably due to all the amazon packages the postie rams through the door) one of the two nylon hinge pins (which also serve as springs, twisting when the flap is lifted) broke. Otherwise the whole cover still looked as new, nice and shiny and brushes intact.

    After effecting a temporary duct tape bodge I set about sourcing a replacement, and was pleased to find it here. Neatly packed by the vendor (power media) my new letterbox even posted easily through the old one :-) Fitting it was a doddle, as the design has stayed exactly the same so the old screw holes could be re used. My only niggle was that only two screws were provided (the frame has a total of 6 screw holes, 4 corners, 2 mid side) so I reused the four old ones, hence the deduction of a star. leaving 2 small screws out of the packaging is a very stingy move by the manufacturer !

  15. Jamienko

    Nearly 5 stars

    Great product does exactly what I wanted and have had no issues with the brushes despite many Amazon deliveries. The only reason I gave it 4/5 is because it only comes with 2 screws, despite there being 6 holes in total and you’d want to have 2 screws at the top and 2 at the bottom for a very secure fit. I had plenty screws to use but I feel they should have been provided.

    Anything that reduces the draughts is a boon and this item certainly does do that. I am pleased that we made the purchase and we did not have any problems fitting the item to the interior of the wooden door. We should have purchased this item years ago.

  17. ergoatlantis

    It serves its purpose

    I bought this so that the postman did not have to bend documents and magazines to get them through the small letter box originally fitted to my door. This letter box has an aperture of 252mm x 38mm and so will accept letters up to A4 size in width and is deep enough to accept a small-box VHS in a padded envelope although that is a tight squeeze.

    The product itself looks good and is well finished. The flap is aluminium but the surround is plasic. However, for the price, I thought it rather mean to supply only two fixing screws. It does its job though.
