Global Builders Warehouse Explains the Benefits of SPC Hybrid Flooring in New Blog Post

Published February 21, 2023

Global Builders Warehouse, a company based in Doveton, Victoria, Australia, has recently published a blog post that explains what SPC Hybrid flooring is with the industry-leading Välinge 5G locking mechanism. This innovative 5G lock technology eliminates the need for nailing or gluing. All that is required to install the floor panels is a single person, a single movement, and one pair of hands. This can substantially decrease installation time, whether it is a DIY or a professional installation.

Hasan Yuvarajah from Global Builders Warehouse explains, “Floor installation should be a fast and simple process with perfect results every time. That means no gaps between the boards, no unevenness and no squeaking sounds. Equally important, the floor should remain perfect for the lifetime of the floor. 5G locking systems are the industry standard for installing floors.The long sides of the floor panels are locked with a traditional angling method and 5G or 5G-i is used for easy and fast installation by vertical snap without the need of any tools. Installation time is reduced dramatically to almost half when compared to other solutions.”

5G® is the Välinge brand for the internationally recognized fold down installation system that is currently being used by over 100 floor manufacturers all over the world. With 5G locking technology, it is much easier to install a floor. This system is based on a single action installation technique that can be used for all kinds and widths of floor materials. Meanwhile, 5G-I is the brand for SPC Hybrid’s one-piece installation systems with the locking element included in the core. With this system, as the panel is folded down, a locking strip that easily bends is used to lock the panels in place. The locking strip flexes back when the guiding surfaces have passed each other and the locking strip pulls down the folded panel into a perfectly aligned and locked position. This locking system has been tested to be superior to other locking systems through laboratory tests.
