Waregem, Belgium—Unilin Technologies said it will launch SquareClic, a technology that ensures a perfectly aligned floor throughout the whole installation, at TISE 2022.
According to Unilin, the flooring industry has been looking for a solution to make checkerboard pattern installations with a click system for a long time. The challenge for manufacturers has always been the accuracy that is needed to make an SPC tile perfectly ‘squared’. The smallest tolerances or errors during the manufacturing process would cause the tiles to become difficult to be installed, the company said.
“Due to standard production tolerances, square floorboards almost always show deviations in their format,” said Floris Koopmans, sales director IP. “These tolerances will add up when installing several tiles, making it almost impossible to install a whole floor in a checkerboard pattern. SquareClic technology ensures that each intersection of four installed square panels stays perfectly positioned with the edges aligned, even when using a hammer assisted installation.”
Unilin also recently announced that it will launch a new bevel technology for resilient floors called Unigrout at TISE 2022. According to the company, the new type of bevel is almost indistinguishable from real grout, and provides the look of real ceramics with all the benefits of an SPC floor.
In addition, Unilin will launch two new, PVC-free core technologies at Surfaces: XPC and P-SPC. The new cores are the next step forward in the resilient flooring revolution, the company said, bringing improved performance and increased sustainability to the table.
