Välinge Innovation announced that its long-term licensing partner Mannington is launching a collection of real wood flooring branded TimberPlus with Woodura and 5G Dry technologies, invented and patented by Välinge, in North America.
“Mannington’s new TimberPlus hardwood with Woodura and 5G Dry is truly a great addition to our award winning hardwood line. We’re excited to have a real hardwood floor that stands up to the high performance standards from the American flooring customer, with durability, water resistance, and in colors and formats consumers are looking for,” says John Hammel, senior director hardwood & laminate at Mannington.
The Woodura surface technology is based on fusing a thin sheet of wood with a high density core through a powder mix layer, creating a significantly stronger surface and enabling 10 times more flooring to be produced from the same amount of lumber. TimberPlus also features 5G Dry, Välinge’s premium, water-resistant fold-down locking technology as well as 5G Climb, allowing the floor to be installed on walls by simply adding a small plastic clip.
“Our water-resistant 5G Dry fold-down locking system also brings with it an incredibly easy, worry-free installation experience and the ability to disassemble the floor easily if needs be. It’s a really good time to be in the market for a real wood floor — hardened wood floors is a truly next-generation product. We are thrilled that a reputable company such as Mannington is launching products with those technologies and we see this collaboration as a real proof that our latest innovations are right on trends to bring value for the consumers,” says region manager, Lennart Thålin.
