Välinge Innovation’s


technologies for flooring have facilitated the way


locking people


install and use floorings. With its click furniture technology, the company now also makes furniture assembly easier and quicker then ever before.


Furniture panel with plastic tongue (left) before and after assembly Välinge developed the first modern


locking system for flooring in 1994. The company’s latest locking generation, the 5G®


fold down technology, was launched


at the end of 2004 and has since been used worldwide by the company’s licensees in the production of more than 900,000,000 square meters of flooring area. Today, Välinge holds patents in locking


systems, other fields related to flooring and surface technologies and now also in furniture technology.

packages and is ready for fast, easy and tool-less assembly. The plastic tongues are pre-mounted

One of the resulting benefits is the speed and ease of which furniture can be assembled. Neither tools nor spare parts such as fasteners and bolts are required. For consumers, this


means click furniture technology is


based on the 5G technology for flooring. The key


is tongue that complex instruction manuals that are no


longer required and the time spent on trying to find the right spare parts can be eliminated. Furniture arrives in flat


high-volume


production, through-feed machines (DET) can be used in combination with edge-banding. Since there is no need for gluing or pressing, also factory assembly becomes significantly more effective.


Robust solution for a wide range of materials As the locking function is provided by the plastic tongue, the technology is suitable for all materials that can be machined to a profile such as particle board, HDF, MDF,
