Innovative Gecko PRO™ progressive wall system saves 40 percent on labor costs
April 10, 2013 (Newswire) - Spec-Rite Designs, a global distributor, fabricator and designer of phenolic furnishings, announces the launch of the new Gecko PRO™ line. Gecko PRO™ is the first progressive wall system of its kind to ever be offered in the industry. Spec-Rite Designs is the exclusive U.S. distributor and fabricator of Gecko Wall System products.
"The Gecko PRO™ system was designed to bring simplicity and intuitiveness to the installation process," said Robert Bordener, President of Sunshore Development Partners, Inc. - the creator of the Gecko brand. "This is the first and only progressive wall system of its kind to be self-install friendly for general contractors, facility owners, and maintenance personnel."
Gecko PRO™ is a revolutionary, unique perimeter rail system that offers the appearance and functionality of traditional progressive wall systems while reducing labor costs by more than 40 percent. Gecko PRO™ system was designed for more intuitive installation. Shipped pre-milled by Spec-Rite Designs, the panels are fully sized, pre-machined, require no Z-clips, and no panel drilling, no installation machinery, or specialized skills. The reveals are adjustable by Spec-Rite Designs and the panels are ready to be quickly installed by dropping into place.
Gecko PRO™ is the only progressive wall system in the industry to offer panel ventilation, realistic movement allowance and separate expansion and contraction of each panel without stress accumulation from panel to panel. Gecko PRO™ is an architectural grade progressive interior wall panel mounting system designed for use with 1/4" - 3/8" thick solid phenolic panels. Gecko PRO™ is fabricated from 70% reclaimed aluminum extrusions and made in the USA. "We believe Gecko PRO™ will revolutionize the way architects, facility owners, and designers purchase wall systems," said Steve Kistner, General Manager of Spec-Rite Designs. "The Gecko PRO™ system is less expensive than traditional progressive wall systems, provides easier maintenance, reduces labor costs, and offers all the durability and health benefits that Spec-Rite Designs' solid phenolic panels provide."
Spec-Rite Designs' solid phenolic panels used in the Gecko PRO™ system are non-porous and non-microbial which prohibit the growth of bacteria, microbes, and mold, are GREENGUARD certified, and contribute to LEED certification. The solid phenolic panels are also water, impact, scratch, and graffiti resistant.
