May 9, 2011 - PRLog -- Jessel innovations, a husband and wife team from Reading, introduced the new revolutionary
draught-free letterbox system ‘Ecoflap Twin’ at Ecobuild 2011. This latest product comes after
the success of the original ‘Ecoflap’, which was well received at the corresponding event in
2008, particularly by the passive housing sector.
Richard Jessel, inventor of both products, has a long history in successful design engineering
- anything from metal detectors, cash machines, lie detectors to touch screen TV’s. The
Ecoflap range is probably the most simple and yet the most ingenious in Richard’s portfolio of
The original successful ‘Ecoflap’ is a draught-excluder, which retrofits to an existing letter box
and is available to the consumer in its own right. The latest product ‘Ecoflap Twin’ is a
complete letterbox system, designed to be fully integrated into a door at the manufacturing
stage. It shares the same technology as the original Ecoflap, but provides a permanent
elegant solution for a completely integrated zero-draught letterbox.
The design is surprisingly simple. Unlike other letterboxes and draught excluding systems
available on the market, neither product has untidy brushes or harsh springs. They simply rely
on basic science and gravity. Whilst allowing large items to be posted through the aperture
with the lightest of touch, the Ecoflap Twin provides a completely draught-proof barrier when
in the closed position. The more draught there is, the tighter the seal; thus reducing expensive
energy costs. Not only is the Ecoflap brand endorsed by the Energy Saving Trust. The original
Ecoflap has been successfully installed in passive housing by an Associated Architect in
Birmingham with impressive results. Both the Ecoflap and Ecoflap Twin significantly exceed
building regulations draught-proof requirements. Both products have undergone rigorous
testing and, due to the simplicity of the design, wear and tear is minimized. The Ecoflap Twin
can be easily fireproofed with an additional intumescent seal incorporated at manufacture
As well as saving on heating costs, the Ecoflap range can accommodate larger packages than
most current letterbox systems of the same aperture. This added benefit stems from the
absence of springs and brushes, a feature that is a very important in these times of ‘internet
purchasing’ trends. As neither product is equipped with mechanical parts, the postman is
more likely to post packages all the way through, rather than leaving them wedged part-way
The original Ecoflap retrofit is currently available to the consumer online and comes in a
choice of three colours, manufactured in plastic. Jessel Innovations plans to launch the
product in a variety of materials, particularly those that are sustainable, once orders reach a
viable level. The fully integrated Ecoflap Twin is not yet in production, so choices of material
and colours depend on client requirements. Quotes can be obtained from Anne Jessel,
Richard Jessel, the inventor of both products, says: “The science behind this revolutionary
letterbox system can be applied to many different uses and I have been working on a range of
follow-up products, which we plan to launch over the next year or so. We really want to get this
letterbox solution out into the mainstream market as we see it as the first in line of many
applications for the design. One of the key objectives is to break into the door manufacturer
market with the Ecoflap Twin.”
