Modular markets

Infrastructures for social development

Markets have always been a key economic element in towns around the world, and they continue doing so

The Gaptek System allows the construction of modular markets using local resources, promoting the local economy. The Gaptek market is designed to boost social development wherever they are placed.

Our modular markets

Gaptek can design modular solutions in the shape of markets that are one of a kind. The Colonial-style modular market is an example of the wide range of solutions that we can offer.

The design of the building is based on a square-shaped ground floor with a central patio. There are arch-shaped openings along all façades, which facilitate the access to visitors and give way to natural light entrances.

What structural materials are used by Gaptek?
Gaptek has developed a construction system based on prefabricated profiles and dry joints, using aluminum as the structural material for the advantages it has as opposed to traditional construction and its great adaptability.

The advantages of aluminum as structural material as opposed to steel are numerous, such as the optimization and customization of the profiles according to its specific use, as compared with steel’s standard and normalized profiles, the lightness of the profiles and its resistance, the low maintenance thanks to the anticorrosive properties of aluminum and its total recyclability.

What type of machinery is required for the assembly of the modules?

Thanks to the lightness of aluminum profiles, the structural materials optimization and the simple assembly of our system using dry joints, it is not required to use very heavy machinery or large cranes to assemble our modules. Only ordinary tools are required.

What is Gaptek modules fire resistance?

The structures of the modules are protected against fire using inner lining of rock wool sandwich panels. Therefore, the degree of fire resistance will depend on the thickness of the panel and its own fire resistance, adapting the project to the specific regulation and the requirements of the modules, without limits.

What is the durability of Gaptek modules?

The materials used in Gaptek modules, as well as in the rest of Gaptek products, have a great resistance and durability, similar to traditional construction systems. Gaptek offers a 20 year guarantee according to the structure and 5 years to the rest of the elements that compose the modules.

I want my modules to be energy efficient. Is it possible?

Yes. In fact, all Gaptek solutions minimize in a passive way the intervention of machines to reach comfort and energy efficiency. In addition, our system is totally compatible with the installation of renewable energies such as solar panels and geothermal.

Are Gaptek modules resistant to extreme weather conditions?

Yes. Gaptek buildings are designed to withstand the conditions of the places inhabited by 85% of the world’s population, but they can also be designed for the most extreme climates of the planet. An example is the Gaptek warehouse that was built in Antarctica.
