Välinge is introducing a brand-new floor locking system, 5G NXT™, taking their 5G® Fold Down technology to the next level. The company says this innovative solution has a more sustainable insert, makes it easy to install, remove, and reinstall flooring and it is specially designed to further reduce the environmental impact of wood flooring.
“We developed 5G NXT to help flooring producers meet the new demands for more sustainable alternatives. It’s an impressive technology with many environmental benefits”, says Niklas Borgquist, key account manager at Välinge Innovation.
According to the company, the upgraded insert is made from biomass-balanced materials with a 75 percent lower carbon footprint, and the unique design enables tool-less dismantling by tapping the panels. They says it creates endless possibilities for flooring to be installed, removed, and reinstalled elsewhere.
“With our new technology panels can be dismantled piece-by-piece without the need to remove an entire row. This makes dismantling up to 40 percent faster and significantly reduces the risk of damaging the panels compared to traditional solutions,” explains Caroline Landgård, business developer for floor locking at Välinge Innovation.
The technology will premiere at Domotex 2024 Meet the Välinge team in Hall 20, Booth A08 on January 11–14, 2024.
