Knauf UK: Official Partners of Inspirational New Silverstone Experience
Knauf UK is working in partnership with The Silverstone Experience Centre (TSE) and has supplied high performance products for an exciting new visitor attraction at the home of British motor racing, due to open to the public this summer.
TSE is expected to attract over 500,000 visitors a year to the new interactive and dynamic exhibition which will guide visitors through a thrilling two-hour journey covering Britain’s motor racing past, present and future. Motor racing is of course not the quietest sport so a plasterboard solution was needed that would keep the noise down.
It therefore made sense to specify the use of Knauf Soundshield Plus within the extensive exhibition space. Knauf Soundshield Plus offers up to 62dB (Rw) sound insulation and up to 90 minutes’ fire resistance. It is designed to be used as a cladding component in partitions and lining systems when sound reduction is the key objective.
Knauf is proud to be a recognised supporter of TSE which has been supported by National Lottery players through a £9.1million Heritage Lottery Fund grant. The new attraction will celebrate the internationally renowned Silverstone racing circuit in the only remaining WWII hangar on the site which has been fully refurbished to create an authentic backdrop for the experience.
Like TSE, Knauf is passionate about supporting technological innovation and supporting the next generation of engineers. To learn more about how Knauf products can help on your next project, visit the new Knauf website: www.knauf.co.uk
The Silverstone Experience will ensure that the heritage of Silverstone and British motor racing is protected for both current and future generations. It will celebrate the history of Silverstone Circuit and Britain’s role in the motor sport industry. For more information, please visit: www.silverstone-experience.co.uk
