We've Perfected the Art of Prefabrication

A lightweight, resilient facade system that’s disrupting the industry.

GateLite is a lean architectural concrete skin offering many of the design options found with traditional architectural precast. This all-inclusive system has a complete thermal, vapor and air barrier and eliminates on-site labor hours, as fabrication and assembly is performed safely on the ground prior to delivery. With GateLite, design teams can now create a true work of art.

GateLite Virtual Demo

The system core, providing the structural capacity and attachment points for the skins and windows to the structure. Allows for flexibility.

Attachment to the structure to provide bearing connection for the system, typically two bearing points per panel.

Attachment to the structure to provide lateral support for the system, typically multiple points per panel.

Mineral wool (min 4pcf density) compressed a min of 33% and installed flush with top surface of floor with smoke seal for NFPA 285 compliance.

Mineral wool (min 4pcf density) compressed a min of 33% installed at the perimeter of the windows to complete fire protection strategy.

Attaches directly to the mainframe but sealed to the skins utilizing Tremco Willseal 600 and finished with Tremco Spectrum 1 sealant.

HFO closed cell polyurethane spray foam with a sustainable blowing agent with zero ozone depletion potential. Located in the space between the mainframe and rear of the skins, providing a continuous thermal & moisture barrier.

Capable of shapes achieved with formwork and attaches directly to the mainframe and sealed utilizing Tremco Willseal 600 and finished with Tremco Spectrum 1 sealant.

Virgin Hotels New Orleans, LA

GATE collaborated with the architectural team of CallisonRTKL & Mathes Brierre Architects to develop a façade system for a 14-story Virgin Hotel that would match the surrounding historic masonry warehouse-style architecture.

Ransom Everglades STEM Coral Gables, FL

GATE collaborated with Perkins+Will to design a facade system that imposed no more than 48psf dead load, serve as a rain barrier, convey three-dimensional architectural surface articulation and withstand the high velocity wind zone.

Century Construction HQ Ridgeland, MS

GATE collaborated with Century Construction who was in pursuit of a light-weight façade system for its new headquarters. The GateLite system was ultimately selected with a six-week installation advantage over comparable systems.

Baptist Hospital Pensacola, FL

GATE collaborated with Gresham Smith & Partners to meet the demands of a compressed schedule with multiple façade types, offering GateLite for the tower and insulated GateStone for the podium and CEP.

Product Details

You get everything, without compromising anything.

GateLite is a unitized system providing a complete façade that meets or exceeds energy and code requirements, while offering performance and design flexibility that can be customized per project. Finished and unitized with glass and insulation for a complete thermal, vapor and air barrier, GateLite eliminates on-site labor hours, with fabrication and assembly safely performed on the ground prior to delivery.
