Record earthquake demonstrates GeckoTech “staying power”
GeckoTech is responsible for one of Costa Rica’s most spectacular Home Entertainment installations. The Vista La Palmas penthouse has in excess of 48 speakers (4 of which drop out of the ceiling and pivot), 8 TVs (ranging from 42 to 60 inches), 6000W of online power backup, 18 zones of audio, 4 movie on demand players. The list could go on and on. During the 2012 September 5th earthquake, the VLP penthouse, situated 17 floors above sea-level experienced more side to side movement than any other area of the pacific coast. Because GeckoTech engineers believe in sturdy/robust mounting techniques not a single TV was dislodged from the wall nor damaged. Pretty impressive given the magnitude of the quake. We wish other units (lower) in VLP had been as fortunate. “Fortune” starts with solid engineering work from GeckoTech.
