About Us, Our Mission & Qualifications
Who is GPSI
Global Prefab Screen Industries was created in 2002 to provide screen enclosures to customers worldwide. After providing hundreds of screen enclosures to homes in SW Florida, we found that many of the customers were winter or part time residents with homes in other places. Often we would hear how they can't get Florida type enclosures where they live.. they have bugs there too!
The problem was No One knew how to build enclosures with our aluminum and gethigh strength screening to be able offer larger openings, be weather proof and be maintenance free.
Frankly local contractors just didn't know how to build them or where to get the materials. The last part of the equation was the enclosures had to stand up to much different elements that mother nature would throw at them, not elements in SW Florida.
The larger GPSI Enclosures (like most pool coverings) need to be engineered for spans, and or SNOW loads as well as High WINDS. This engineering has been provided by third party engineers and or architects. GPSI works closely with these professionals and customers to supply any information and experience so the finished result what the customers want.
GPSI has a number of professional firms we have worked with in the past to provide the required designs and caculations. We always reccomend that customers check to see what local codes apply to the type of enclosure they are seeking. Some states or areas require state certified Engineer stamping of designs. We can have engineering firms with prior screen enclosure experience colaborate with your local certified Engineering firm(s)
For the most part our pre-screened panels are barriers for hail, blowing debris, animal tear proof and golf ball proof, capable of meeting the challenges faced by homeowners and contractors alike.
Additionally standard screen and wood framing materials are not able to stand up to all the different climates. Many with rapid or extreme changes.
GPSI set it's goals to put together all the components that are necessary and find materials that will fit all the requirements. We have to think way outside the box and look to materials that may have been developed for military, government or industrial use. This took a few years and in some cases we had to assist manufactures with developing new products. Next was to develop a method of design and fabrication capable of meeting requirements for strength, easy assembly , easy installation and reliability. Then logistically how to provide these enclosures of all sizes not only to the US but Worldwide.
GPSI went a step further making sure the finished projects are aesthetically pleasing and an enhancement to the property and its value.
Having accomplished all these goals GPSI continues expanding their capabilities with use of state of the art materials, engineering & creative designs while adding to our product lineup.
