GOS supply a complete structural building system based on fully prefabricated panels/cassettes.

The system consists of two core components: Wall Systems made up of pre-engineered and pre-fabricated panels of stud; Roof & Floor System made up of trusses, Cee joists, lattice joists and or metal deck panels.

All panels are manufactured from hot-dip galvanized (HDG) materials. For material spec, please see stud & track section of this site. The wall panels include window and door openings, shear and wall bracing, and all necessary attachments so they arrive on site ready for quick assembly. Depending on the clients requirements windows can be incorporated, finished cladding and service provisions can also be carried out in factory minimising finishing works required onsite. Preplumbed, prewired panels are also possible.

If the client requires it, GOS will strive to provide it!
Substantial time savings in construction will be realised through using GOS panels. As the frame system is pre-fabricated, you no longer have the burdens of time, space, cost, waste and danger associated with on-site cutting, fixing and assembly. 

GOS wall panels and trusses assemble quickly and easily in a true tilt-up, bolt together construction, allowing for the erection of the entire structure within hours, instead of days, weeks or months. 

These structures are pre-engineered to satisfy the following client needs for:

  • Very high Strength & Durability
  • Energy efficiency
  • Ease of assembly
  • Low cost and Meeting or exceeding all local and national building regulatory and code requirements
   
The Breath-Tite Wall System  
 

This wall system is based on a warm frame structure used as an exterior wall panel with superior thermal performance than that of typical wall panel systems. Based on a SIP technology i.e. a structurally insulated panel, the wall system is fully sustainable and environmentally conscious in design. When our breathe-tite wall panels arrive on site they are pre-insulated with the steel elements set in a warm environment, eliminating a thermal bridge. This removes the need to fit insulation on site.

Our breathe-tite prefabricated wall panels are fully breathable in nature and completely airtight. The superior air tightness properties were developed to perform especially well in freeze, thaw, heavy snow and high wind loads. The system excels even in the stormiest Irish and UK extreme weather conditions. Its breathe-ability also provides peace of mind in our damp moist conditions.

 
   
GOS Infill Panels  
 

These steel framed panels are placed into the external leaf of the building to infill your structural steel or concrete structure. Using a laser, check the accuracy of the structural steelwork or concrete by finding the proudest section and then forward this data to GOS. We then manufacture the wall panels to your exact requirements. 

GOS infill panels are installed at an early stage facilitating early starts for internal completion works. This allows internal trades to start immediately and where permitted a way ahead of start times found in traditionally built structures.

External cladding commences later and is not on the critical path. Therefore, the outer skin of your building becomes less critical to the programme. 

Either GOS can supply structurally engineered stick build kits for the drywall contractor to “Stick Build” infill panel’s onsite or we can supply a fully prefabricated, made to measure panel. Either way, the benefits are:

  • Eliminating blockwork
  • Allowing the building to be made weather tight faster

With GOS infill panels you can enclose a building much sooner than with masonry. From experience onsite GOS can claim it is up to 5 times faster than blockwork.

Our product packages include; all fixings, hold downs, and clips to allow erection of the system at a more rapid pace.

The GOS panel systems can only be erected by the GOS team or by those installers approved by GOS. Authorised installers are trained at our facilities, and have the knowledge and ability to efficiently and safely erect our frame systems virtually anywhere.

 
   
GOS Face Fix Panels  
 

These steel framed panels are face fixed onto the external leaf of the building to provide a rapid dry envelope to the exterior of a steel or concrete structure. Firstly a GOS Face fix bracket is fixed onto the structure by GOS or an approved installer. Using a laser, distances are measured between the various GOS brackets fixed to the steelwork or concrete. We then manufacture the wall panels to your exact requirements. 

GOS face fix panels are installed at an early stage facilitating early starts for internal completion works. This allows internal trades to start immediately and where permitted a way ahead of start times found in traditionally built structures.

External cladding commences later and is not on the critical path. Therefore, the outer skin of your building becomes less critical to the programme. 

The benefits are:

  1. Each panel can be pre-cladded with only minor finishing works required on-site
  2. Eliminating blockwork and external cladding application on-site
  3. Allowing the building to be made weather tight faster

Our product packages include; all fixings, hold downs, and clips to allow erection of the system at a more rapid pace.

The GOS panel systems can only be erected by the GOS team or by those installers approved by GOS. Authorised installers are trained at our facilities, and have the knowledge and ability to efficiently and safely erect our frame systems virtually anywhere.
