International Velodrome wooden cladding

International Velodrome uses Owatrol Textrol Oil

We have been itching to announce this as the most prestigious project to date in the UK for Owatrol products.

International Velodrome uses Owatrol Textrol Oil

More than 1,600 litres of Textrol Oil Clear were applied to the Velodrome and whilst we still cannot produce a proper case study until the games has finished, there is some evidence out there now.

The 12,000 square metre roof is constructed using a very lightweight double curving cable net, suspended from a steel structure. Beneath it, the oval track is 250m in length, engineered for speed and constructed with great precision entirely from wood.

The exterior of the building is clad in 5,000m2 of custom-cut Western Red Cedar shiplap boards. The entire exterior cladding was coated with Owatrol Textrol oil.

Read the full CedarBook case study here (pdf), which is taken from their full brochure, with details and our credit on page 6.

Textrol Oil is perfect for use on exterior wood and it protects against moisture and UV damage – in years to come the Velodrome should still be looking its best!

Look out for a full case study on this project in the future…
