Unizip – The unmatched solution for the rising demand of herringbone installations

11/07/2022

The Unizip locking system is a great solution for herringbone installations with just one type of panel. It can be used for a wide range of base boards, such as laminate and SPC. Novalis Innovative Flooring was the first adopter of this technology for SPC, with enormous success. They launched products with Unizip locking in multiple collections for the American and European market.

“The reception of this product has been amazing,” states John Wu, CEO of Novalis. “To keep up with the rising demand, recently we have invested in more production lines for Unizip products. We are excited to lead the trend for herringbone SPC.”

Novalis was the first mover for Unizip, and with the increasing demand six more manufacturers are following in their footsteps and have invested in the jumper tool. One of these producers is Jiangsu Shengchang, a manufacturer that also produces laminate.

“As the first manufacturer in China for laminate Unizip, this profile has been game changing. Since there is only one type of panel, we do not have any turnover time,” states YH Tao, General Manager from Jiangsu Shengchang. “The engineers at Unilin Technologies helped us with the configuration of the jumper machine into our online continuous production, without sacrificing quality or efficiency.”

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, and as a result manufacturers, distributors and retailers will not need to stock a second type of panel. On top of that, installation is much easier because installers do not need to factor in which panel to use and can simply work with one pile of panels.

“With easy production, supply chain and installation, Unizip is the way to go for herringbone flooring”, states Floris Koopmans, Sales Director of Unilin Technologies. “It has very valuable advantages for each stakeholder of flooring.”
