    Can anyone suggest a supplier of draught proofing systems for up-and-over garage doors?

    I have done one with strip of rubber sheeting, a bit of hit & miss.

    I achieved a level of success by using a 1" wide strip of plastic & securing it using self tapping screws to the inside of the top half of the door ('cos that's the half that opens inwards).

    I had to make some small cut outs as appropriate but it seems to work reasonably well. The bottom half already had a metal strip on the inside of the door post to act as a restraint so I didn't bother with that bit.
