Viken, Sweden—Välinge recently announced it has entered into a global non-exclusive license agreement with the Chinese company, Dalian Kemian Wood Industry Co., Ltd. and affiliates for the use of Välinge’s 5G-C system on the short side of its engineered wood floorings. Dalian Kemian consists of a group of wood flooring factories including Kunshan KeMian. An engineered wood flooring manufacturer since 2003, the group started with mechanical locking systems in 2007 and has now taken the natural step to become a Välinge fold down licensee.
Kemian can now move forward to meet the market demand for a fast and strong fold down installation method with Välinge’s 5G-C.
Välinge’s 5G systems, among the most widely used fold down systems in the market, utilize a flexible and displaceable glass fiber reinforced tongue. The 5G technologies have become very popular due to the strength of the locking but also to the easy and fast installation they offer.
More than 60 Välinge licensees have introduced the 5G locking systems on their products since the technology was first launched in 2005.
