Innovation has been the heart and soul of our business since the company was founded in 1993. We have never stopped challenging standards, and are constantly developing and improving our inventions. With our innovative team and a modern 17,000 m2 world class facility in Sweden, we constantly challenge today’s technological solutions with new ways of thinking. The proof is more than 3,100 granted patents and a global license base of over 250 licensees, for many of the world’s best flooring products and brands all over the world. As we see it, we make life easier. For our partners, and for the millions of people who benefit from our innovations.

Välinge recently introduced 5G® Dry™, a fold down installation system that provides enhanced water resistance by preventing water from penetrating through the seams of the floor panels. With greater protection to withstand the mess of everyday chaos such as spills, this patented innovation makes floors both incredible easy to install and to live with. In wood-based floorings, 5G Dry contributes to significantly lower surface swelling thereby ensuring that the floor both looks and feels better despite being subjected to wet mopping, accidents and other events from everyday use.

5G® Climb™ is a revolutionary technology for wall mounting, based on our proven 5G Fold Down installation system used in flooring. Use the panels as support rails and simply click the wall panels in place horizontally, vertically or in herringbone pattern. With the specially designed clips, the panels are attached instantly to the studs, without any tools. Make your floor climb up the wall and get a perfect match between floor and wall.

Our patented Liteback® technology reduces the product’s weight by up to 20% by removing a portion of the core material from the back of resilient flooring with a grooving unit machine. The product becomes lighter, which means fewer transportations will be needed as more square meters of flooring can be squeezed into each shipping container – lowering CO2 emissions in the process. The removed material can be recycled in the next production process, reducing material consumption by up to 20%, thus improving raw material efficiency and saving production costs. A lighter product will also benefit the installation process, both when it is performed by professional installer or DIY installer.

Real wood but stronger. Our patented Woodura® technology is based on fusing a thin sheet of real wood with a wood fiber core through a powder mix layer. By using sliced wood instead of solid wood, 10 times more flooring can be produced from the same amount of lumber, compared to traditional engineered wood flooring, maximizing the floor surface from every log. The Woodura technology creates a floor that is 3-5 times stronger than other hardwood floors, resulting in improved indent resistance. The Woodura® technology provides an opportunity to enhance the unique character of natural wood, by combining different wood assortments with powder mixes in different colors.
