Reddiseals industry recognised Flexislide is made to the highest possible standards in our own factories.

Our Self-adhesive Flexislide fits directly to the wood with self-adhesive tape, eliminating the need to route a channel.

Older buildings and in particular sash windows do suffer from rattles and draughts, by looking into simple draught proofing methods eliminating them could make a massive difference to your energy costs.
Period properties can lose up to 20% of their heat via draughts but tackling this with draught proofing resolves the problem with keeping the character of your property. About one fifth of your homes energy is potentially lost through windows. Air escapes through air gaps not the glass itself, simple draught proofing as discussed above could reduce air infiltration through your sash window by as much as 86%.
By draught proofing your sash window you aren’t sacrificing the look and feel of your windows, but you are preparing your home to be more energy efficient during the colder months.
