How to video guide

Below is a video that shows you how to install an Ecoflap.

 

In-Depth Step-by-step guide

The Ecoflap can be fitted simply with screws or without;

Fitting With Screws

Firstly you will need to remove your existing draught proofing system and measure the hole. You will need to mark the centre of top edge.

Take your Ecoflap and locate the “lining up” lip at the back , Rest the lip onto and inside the lower edge of the letter box hole.

Bring the central screw hole in line with your centre mark. Tape along the top to hold in place. The bottom is already supported by the locator lip.

There are six screw holes. Screw into the door. NB Screws not provided, due to varying depth of door and materials. Depth of screws recommended are 3.5 mm x 12 - 15 mm countersink.

Finish by fitting the caps for aesthetic appearance.


Fitting Without Screws

Firstly you will need to remove your existing draught proofing system and measure the hole. You will need to mark the centre of top edge.

Take your Ecoflap and fit the screw caps then turn it over and apply kitchen or bathroom sealant (available from hardware stored) around the flange.

Take your Ecoflap and locate the “lining up” lip at the back , Rest the lip onto and inside the lower edge of the letter box hole.

Bring the central screw hole in line with your centre mark. Tape along the top to hold in place. The bottom is already supported by the locator lip.

Tape across the top to hold in place until set.

1. Why won't the letter box inside flap blow open?

The product is finely balanced -the plate is biased so that the opening force is counteracted by
a greater closing force. Recent testing proved it won't blow open, and closed AGAINST an
equivalent wind speed of 114 mph!(1700 Pascal’s). Also took a good soaking with pressures
of water and air at 100 Pascal’s, without leakage.

2. Why is Ecoflap Draught Proof?

The plate won't rattle, either by wind force or passing traffic rumbling by, thus no cold air will
filter in, or no heat will escape. It'll keep you warm if your outside letter flap became faulty, or
hypothetically... you didn't have one!

3. Why is it classed as Eco-friendly?

Ecoflap will contribute towards saving energy costs. The letter box can be a "silent culprit" for
losing heat. It has been quoted that up to 27% heat can be lost. From another point of view, it
can be made from recyclable material e.g. wood.

4. I have a favourite plate on the outside of my letter box. Will it work with this size wise?

Yes it would. The Ecoflap is designed to retrofit and will accommodate post up to 260mm
(10.25") wide and 42mm (approx1.75") high. The Ecoflap will draught proof a hole up to 80mm
(over 3.125") high and over 300mm (12") wide.

5. My outside letter plate is metal. Will it be compatible with a plastic one inside?

A metal plate can contribute to cold air being conducted through to the inside plate and
consequently inside your house. If the inside plate is ABS -a high quality thermo plasic
(recyclable) - it will act as a barrier having lower thermal conducting properties.

6. My doors bang when there is a "through" draught - will it stop this?

It will certainly help the situation. There is no passage of air through the plate, in either
direction.

7. Why is it safer?

There are no springs to bite fingers -or damage mail.

8. Why is it so simple to use?

Ecoflap is light weight and conveniently operated with one hand. It adjusts to the size of
delivery and there are no components to break. The product is easily fitted having a small lip
along the lower edge that rests onto your existing lower ledge of your aperture. This lines up
perfectly with the outside plate. There will be aesthetic screw caps, one for each corner. N.B.
Screws are not supplied due to varying depths of doors and materials (preference for adhering
method). Recommended 3.5mm x 12/15mm countersink

 

Here are just some of the ways it does the job:

Economic:

  • Install a Ecoflap and you will notice lower heating bills because the Ecoflap uses the outside wind to keep the flap closed and the draught out, making your house warmer. This puts more money back into your pocket when you turn the thermostat down.

Better Consumption:

  • Made to stop draughts and keep you warm.  Prevents cold air getting in and stops the warm air from escaping, keeping the warm in and cold out and adding money to your pocket in the mean time.

Feel good:

  • No crumpled post;
  • With no need for springs, magnets or brushes, it makes it easier for the post to be pushed through without being crumpled. As well as the post being in good condition, there is no risk of hurting your fingers when the flap slams shut.
  • With a sleek descreet look, it just fits in with your lifestyle.

Simple:

  • One size fits most letterboxes as standard, it has even been put on a number of victorian houses and still done the job;
  • Simple to fit- no need for any tools, all you need is some normal bathroom sealant and you can stick the ecoflap on to the door.

 Reliable:

  • It will always work, as the wind blowing actually seals the Eco-Flap further.  It's extremely high-quality and made to last as long as you continue to recieve post!
