Mannington introduces TimberPlus™ hardwood collection featuring Välinge technologies

Viken, Sweden

Välinge Innovation is pleased to announce that its long-term licensing partner Mannington is launching a collection of real wood flooring branded TimberPlus™ with Woodura® surface technology and 5G® Dry™ in North America.

Mannington, partner and licensee for Välinge’s click flooring technologies since 2010, is launching a collection of hardened wood flooring based on the Woodura and 5G Dry technologies, invented and patented by Välinge. Mannington is branding this line TimberPlus™ with a tagline telling the performance story: Real. Durable. Waterproof.

“Mannington’s new TimberPlus™ hardwood with Woodura  and 5G Dry is truly a great addition to our award winning hardwood line. We’re excited to have a real hardwood floor that stands up to the high performance standards from the American flooring customer, with durability, water resistance, and in colors and formats consumers are looking for”, says John Hammel, Sr. Dir. Hardwood & Laminate at Mannington.

The Woodura surface technology is based on fusing a thin sheet of wood with a high density core through a powder mix layer, creating a significantly stronger surface and enabling 10 times more flooring to be produced from the same amount of lumber. Consumers can now choose a real wood floor with up to 3 times the impact protection of a traditional hardwood floor, while being much more sustainable.

TimberPlus™ also features 5G Dry, Välinge’s premium, water-resistant fold-down locking technology as well as 5G® Climb™, allowing the floor to be installed on walls by simply adding a small plastic clip. “Our water-resistant 5G® Dry™ fold-down locking system also brings with it an incredibly easy, worry-free installation experience and the ability to disassemble the floor easily if needs be. It’s a really good time to be in the market for a real wood floor — hardened wood floors is a truly next-generation product. We are thrilled that a reputable company such as Mannington is launching products with those technologies and we see this collaboration as a real proof that our latest innovations are right on trends to bring value for the consumers”, says Region Manager, Lennart Thålin.

“Those technologies have proven to suit our partners portfolios perfectly,” says Zach Adams, General Manager, Välinge North America Inc. “Wider and larger hardwood flooring, combined with a waterproof topical surface and easy installation is exactly what can be achieved by incorporating those latest innovations, thus creating beautiful real wood floors designed for a worry-free life.”

Mannington is presenting the new TimberPlus™ range on booth #1309 at The International Surface Event (TISE) happening February 1-3, 2022 in Las Vegas.
