Click Flooring Technology
5G is the brand for the globally recognized locking systems by Välinge Innovation used by more than 100 floor producers around the world. With 5G, floor installation has never been easier. These locking systems are based on a single action installation method suitable for all types and widths of floor products.
The boards are locked on the long side with a traditional angling method. On the short side, the different versions of the 5G locking systems enable simple and fast installation by vertical snap (Original 5G / 5G-i) or side push (5G-S and 5G-W) without the need of any tools.
The Woodura® surface technology is based on fusing a thin sheet of wood onto a wood fiber core through a powder mix layer. The result is a real wood surface, but stronger. As the powder mix perfectly fills up the natural openings of the wood, it reinforces the strength, enhances the wood appearance and eliminates the need for putty operations.
Cured Wood flooring
Cured Wood flooring featuring Woodura® surface technology is a high-tech product that can be used in areas subject to intense wear, for example kitchens, hallways and other commercial areas. Moreover, the floors are so tough that there is no need for sanding.
The Woodura surface is fused on to a high-end HDF board with low swelling. The wood is subsequently brushed, oiled and lacqured to maintain the natural touch and appearance of wood. Further effects can be added through staining.
