Unilin’s Unizip®, a new standard for herringbone glueless flooring panel installations


At the recently held Hannover DOMOTEX fair, Unilin IP presented a newly developed locking technology, named Unizip®, which sets a new standard for herringbone glueless flooring panels.

The new locking system, which locks both short and long side of panels in a horizontal and vertical way, allows flooring panels to be installed in both herringbone and/or in standard row patterns, without the traditional need for two sets of panels (the so called “A and B” panels or “left and right” panels).

The Unizip® technology solves many of the logistical and installation issues associated with a traditional herringbone floor. Manufacturers no longer need to manufacture two different types of panels for one floor installation, and as a result manufacturers, distributors and retailers will not need to stock a second type of panel. Unizip® is suitable for all types of flooring, including LVT, SPC, laminate, wood, and others.
