GateLite

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

System core providing the structural capacity and attachment points for the architectural precast facade and windows to the structure.

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.

Incorporated into the system in a controlled environment at Gate fabrication facilities.

HFO closed cell polyurethane foam with zero ozone depletion sprayed on at Gate fabrication facilities.

Casts directly to the mainframe resulting in a lighter weight system.

Baptist Hospital Pensacola, FL

The GateLite architectural precast façade system was selected by Baptist Health’s new campus in Florida to meet high velocity wind zone requirements, improve jobsite safety, compress schedule and reduce the project’s carbon footprint.

Gulch Union Nashville, TN

Gulch Union, a 28-story mixed-used office tower designed by HKS, Inc. in Nashville is being constructed with GateLite — a durable, lightweight façade solution ideally suited for today’s fast-paced and environmentally conscious construction market.

Virgin Hotel 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 Center 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.

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.
