draught proof strip around the frame?

 

The reality is if the rest of the house is air tight and sealed you won't get much draught.  In a well sealed house you can open one door or one window and you won't get a draught.

Was hoping for a bit more than that as that's what we have on existing house and it's not great (hadn't considered the air tight side)

Would a self closing hinge with a strong closing pull help create a better seal?

Could be worth looking at the garage outer door doors

Do you mean the the garage door for the car, we have a lot of air vents in there so sealing the big door is s bit pointless plus there is a log gasification boiler in there (need ventilation for combustion).

Our door to the attached garage is a plain white upvc fire door - it looks good and seals very well - I believe its what they fit as front doors in blocks of flats.

It was fitted in 2010, I have since moved it to its new location - I will look tomorrow.
