The GA 5 Star Service fulfils the fundamental need for top quality light gauge aluminium materials, accurately and rapidly made into purpose made products, to suit your precise design and delivery requirements.

It’s so easy and convenient to order aluminium stock online from our extensive selection of aluminium and aluminium alloy extrusions and sheets.

You can discover many different perforated, plain, patterned and textured sheets, fixing profiles, mouldings, trims and general-purpose angles, channels, etc., to satisfy a wide variety of architectural, and general design applications.

Staying on the ‘straight and narrow’ with GA’s extruded aluminium alloy Squeeze Frames.

For added strength and rigidity all perforated GA Squeeze Frame Aluminium Panels are supplied with a plain (imperforate) border that sits inside the aluminium frame recess. Independent test results show significantly improved performance with this method of fabrication.

By utilising the ‘close tolerance’ alloy extrusion process in producing these aluminium profiles, the much dreaded ‘rippling or bowing’ effect of folded aluminium sheet trims can be avoided. You’ll also experience a stronger and straighter aluminium product, giving a more professional finished appearance.

Case Study – BP Valhall Accommodation/Hotel Platform Project

Project: BP Valhall Accommodation/Hotel Platform

Location: North Sea, Norway

Product: Aluminium Wall Cladding Type WC2

Material: Perforated Sheet GA P1632 & Plain Aluminium Sheet GA 1539

Finish: Powder Coated RAL 7045 & RAL 7047

Client: BP Norge

Specifier: SLP Engineering

Project Background

BP Valhall Accommodation/Hotel Platform Project

The Valhall platform is located in the North Sea off the coast of Norway and is one of the largest offshore brownfield projects ever attempted across the globe. The $2.4billion project was to build a new accommodation/production platform, preserving a proportion of the existing infrastructure which was pending eventual decommissioning and to stop reservoir subsidence in order to extend field life to 2049.

The new production and hotel platform – has a design life of 40 years. It is sized for production of about 120,000 barrels of oil and 143million cu ft of gas per day; water handling capability of 200,000bpd; a topsides weight of some 16,000 tonnes, and jacket weighing in at 7,500 tonnes.

The living quarters house 180 people, they are powered from offshore for additional energy efficiency, but more importantly, the Gooding Aluminium lightweight, powder coated finish perforated sheets weigh 1.38 kg/m2, and the plain aluminium sheets are 5.5 kg/m2. The lightweight nature of the panels helped to bring the platform within the specified weight limit, contributing to the ongoing subsidence control programme.

In total, over 950 aluminium panels were supplied, manufactured and delivered in 4 stages. Each stage delivered ahead of schedule and once again celebrated Gooding Aluminium’s enviable 100% quality control, whereupon no panels were rejected.


“I chose the Goodings system in preference to a variety of acoustic linings for the following reasons:-
a. Weight/performance met our strict criteria.
b. Reasonably easy to be installed by abseilers i.e. the fixing method and durability provided perfect product.
c. Cost
d. Repairable paint finish
e. Contractor experience of GA.
f. Crisp precise detailing and the system allows acoustic and non acoustic panels in the same coherent system.”

Project Background

The Jewish Museum London recently opened it’s doors again following a remarkable transformation that culminated in a landmark museum that celebrates Jewish life and cultural diversity. The museum formerly operated from two separate premises in north London, is now based in expanded premises in the heart of Camden Town. The museum’s two 19th century terraced buildings on Albert Street have been connected to an adjacent former piano factory, tripling the amount of space available for display.
