Rated 2 out of 5Â by Tykebike Read what it says on the tin
It's my fault that I bought the wrong item I should have been more diligent by carefully reading the description : Pack of 5, I expected it to be as the Stormguard description, 3 pieces.
Please note the ratings I have given are as neutral as I can get without actually installing this item.
When I went to pick this up I was surprised when the assistant brought it out, I said it should be a lot longer than that. She explained that the aluminium is in 5 pieces for ease of transport but the seals for long sides are single pieces folded over.
When I got home I studied the Stormguard catalogue and it definitely states 3 pieces. Without removing the packaging it didn't look like the seals were doubled over.
I decided I wanted the long sides to be single pieces so I took it back for a refund.
I found the 3 piece Stormguard pack nearby for Â£3 less so I bought it.

I have a badly fitting front door with a large gap around it.- 8 mm in places There was a huge draft into the house. I fitted this product and now the house is warm and comfortable and the noise from the front door is considerably reduced. I can't rate the reliability as it has only been in a few days. I found in some cases the rubber seal slid out of the aluminium strip. This was easily fixed by screwing one of the small screws up into the aluminium channel into which the rubber strip slides. Ensure you screw through the rubber by pulling it towards the screw.

Even though i did not read the instructions, which is a bad habit of mine, I found there are 2 lengths that have a slightly different size profile and shape to the othe three, these fit on the side where the hinge of the door is.
There are plenty of screws, so you can drill and fit a screw where the ends are needing extra security, no silicone needed the rubber seal clamps on the door frame when you tighten the screw.
I would have given 5* for reliability but have just fitted it, but given the quality of the parts it's a 4*.
Easy to fit even without reading the instructions.
Worth buying if you have a door with the wind whistling through it
