Pergo’s one-piece folddown locking patent confirmed by the EPO Board of AppealPergo’s one-piece folddown locking patent confirmed by the EPO Board of Appeal2014-11-26T23:00:00Z

On the 20th of November 2014, the Board of Appeal of the European Patent Office confirmed the validity of Pergo's EP 1 304 427, after hearing the invalidity arguments of several opponents. This patent, which protects a one-piece folddown locking of wood fibre flooring panels, has a priority date of February 1999 and was already confirmed to be valid in first instance by the Opposition Board of the European Patent Office on March 15th, 2012.
 

This final decision from the European Patent Office confirms Pergo's strong patent position regarding the folddown locking technology. Pergo currently has more than 80 granted patents worldwide covering several aspects of the folddown technology, and, an additional 30 divisional applications should be granted in the near future. Several of these patents and patent applications enjoy a broad scope of protection seeing the early priority date.
