VÄLINGE 5Gc LOCKING SYSTEM

Strong and robust locking is ensured by an optimised profile and a glass fibre reinforced tongue on the short side of the board.

Considerable time saving can be achieved when installing flooring equipped with 5Gc Fold Down in comparison with traditional locking systems such as tongue & groove.

When a board is folded down, a flexible plastic tongue is pushed into a tongue-groove. When it reaches its final position, the locking tongue snaps out into a wedge groove, emits a ”click” sound and locks the product vertically.

The advanced bristle tongue used in Välinge’s vertical snap systems (5Gc) consists of a rigid outer part and several flexible inner protrusions. It creates strong pretension locking and enables it to overcome production tolerances. The special design of the locking profile combined with the high performance glass fibre reinforced plastic tongue offers superior function during climate changes and forces applied to the floor.
