As part of the revival project, the Finishing Straight of Brooklands Race Track has been restored to how it looked in 1939 and brought back into use.
Euroclad’s products provided the required like-for-like appearance of the old hangar building and the heritage aesthetic of the new Flight Shed.
Due to the degradation of the original Bellman Hangar sheets, the hangar was clad using a combination of Euroclad’s sinusoidal metal wall and roof profiles in different finishes to replicate the appearance of the old corrugated sheets. The cladding will also provide thermal insulation and protect the buildings from weathering.
A total of 3,314m2 of Euroclad’s 0.7 galvanised steel sinusoidal profiles with Colorcoat Prisma finish were used to clad the hangar’s exterior walls and roof. To ensure that the external aesthetics matched the original building, an Oyster colour was used as a base – 1,522m2 on the walls and 1,792m2 on the roof – and the south side of the building was later painted in a camouflage design -The Flight Shed walls and roof were clad using  955m2 of 0.7 sinusoidal profiles on the walls and 797m2 on the roof, both in a Grey Aluminium finish. 19/1000 liner panels were used on the inside of the Flight Shed with Euroclad’s spacer bar system.
