Window sealant products from Tremco Illbruck installation products are being used in the Hilton Garden Inn, located trackside at Silverstone Grand Prix Circuit.

The 197-room hotel includes a rooftop terrace, and direct access to The Silverstone Wing Conference Centre.

Illbruck also offered fire safety advice. Specifiers had originally selected window sealant products that Illbruck knew wouldn’t meet stringent fire safety standards, and so the team suggested an alternative: ME012, which is a polyester-based window perimeter sealing membrane. Its breathable air and weather seal is also UV stable.

Illbruck’s product manager David Naylor said: “It’s not everyday someone builds a luxury hotel on the most famous race-track in the world – it’s like being able to watch the World Cup final at Wembley out of your hotel room window.”
