Unilin IP introduces Unizip®, a new standard for herringbone glueless installations


At the upcoming Hannover Domotex fair, Unilin IP will present 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.

Unilin IP will provide more technical details and will show samples of the Unizip® technology during the Domotex Hannover exhibition (11th to 14th of January at Stand B80 in Hall 12).
