When it comes to making our homes more comfortable and energy-efficient, one often overlooked yet incredibly effective solution is the humble draught excluder.
As part of developing our new range of draught excluders we looked at lots of other products to come up with our own range. We're so happy to share our thinking with you, to help you to reduce draughts in your home this winter.
We Choose 100% Linen for Our Removable Cover
1. Natural Insulation
We are big fans of linen which is derived from the flax plant and is known for its natural insulating properties. Linen fibres create a barrier that effectively blocks cold air from infiltrating your home, helping to maintain a consistent and comfortable indoor temperature. By using a linen draught excluder, you can reduce the need for additional heating, ultimately saving energy and lowering your utility bills.
2. Eco-Friendly Material
Linen is an eco-friendly fabric. Flax, the plant linen comes from, is resilient and requires minimal water and pesticides to grow. It's a sustainable choice which will help to reduce your environmental footprint. Linen draught excluders are not only effective but also encourage eco-conscious living which is central to our ethos at Helen Round.
3. Durable Fabric
Linen is a very durable, long lasting, hard wearing fabric. Being moved around the floor as the door is opened or closed or positioned along a window requires a tough fabric. For us linen was a good choice combining good aesthetics with durability.
4. Washable Covers
One of the standout advantages of our linen draught excluders is the washable linen cover. Over time, draught excluders can accumulate dust and dirt, especially in high-traffic areas. Being able to remove and wash the cover keeps your draught excluder fresh, clean, and hygienic. It also extends the lifespan of the product, making it a more sustainable choice. Our covers can be machine washed at 30°C.
5. Versatile Style
Linen's natural texture and earthy hues add a touch of timeless elegance to any room. Whether your home is decorated in a modern, minimalist, or rustic style, a linen draught excluder complements your interior decor seamlessly. It's not just functional; it's also a stylish addition to your home. Our draught excluders are available in a range of colours and designs for you to choose from.
