Stunning new Bjelin products at NeoCon in Chicago!

Bjelin, formerly Välinge Flooring, will participate in the innovative design trade show NeoCon in Chicago on the 12th-14th of June 2023. They will launch a brand-new rigid core range and display the latest hardened wood floors – all featuring Välinge Innovation technologies.

The design community will come together during NeoCon, a leading platform for commercial interior design, where Bjelin will show Scandinavian-designed hardened wood floors that are three times stronger than traditional wood floors. This is due to the patented Woodura® technology, which also allows the company to produce ten times more flooring from the same log, creating a more sustainable process.

“Bjelin is excited to show our latest hardened wood floors and to launch a premium rigid core range at NeoCon,” said Zach Adams, General Manager at Bjelin USA. “We look forward to networking with the design community and demonstrating the innovative technologies incorporated into our floors.”

Bjelin’s floors are easy and quick to install with the ground-breaking floor locking technology, 5G® Dry™. Developed in-house by Bjelin’s sister company Välinge Innovation, this leakproof installation system has watertight joints that prevent liquids from seeping through the seams and damaging the subfloor.

The wall-friendly product, 5G® Climb™, will also be shown. Using simple but innovative 5G Climb clips, it’s possible to make the floor climb the wall, ensuring a perfect match between wall and floor.

Due to the Liteback™ technology, the resilient rigid core floors are up to 20% lighter, which makes them easier to handle, more sound-absorbent and creates a reduction of CO2 emissions through reduced material consumption and transport efficiency.

Meet the Bjelin team and view the floors live at booth 7-4062A.

About Bjelin
Bjelin is part of the Pervanovo Invest AB Group and develops and manufactures a wide range of flooring products, including traditional wooden floors and innovative floors from new materials. This development is in collaboration with sister company Välinge Innovation AB, best known as the inventor of the first mechanical floor locking system.

Production takes place in Bjelin’s state-of-the-art factories in Sweden and northern Croatia, where the company has access to high-quality FSC-certified wood. For generations, highly experienced employees have worked there to refine the well-known Slavonic oak into wine barrels – and now floors.
