Our patents

CLASSEN megaloc- without doubt the fastest and easiest glueless or glue free locking system in the world today. 

Integrated in our own floosrs as "CLASSEN megaloc", other well-known laminate flooring manufacturers have also taken over this revolutionary simple quick installation system under licence.

Laminate floors have never been easier or quicker to lay as those with megaloc and this includes DIY as well as professional floor fitters who are now able to lay floors up to three times faster.

In conjunction with megaloc, issowax also offers highly effective moisture protection from above particularly in the critical joint areas.

megaloc aqua protect makes the difference!

The first waterproof laminate flooring with the quick installation system

megaloc aqua protect is an easy-to-install, unique installation system that prevents water from penetrating the joints and greatly reduces swelling of the profile edges in favour of the longevity of the laminate flooring.

  • Reliable protection against water
  • Excellent results according to the NALFA
  • Quick and easy installation

5 technical innovations megaloc aqua protect

  1. Edge Hydrophobisation
  2. Lacquered Bevel
  3. Overlapping Bevels
  4. Durable Force-Locking Connection
  5. Swelling-Modified HDF Board

Excellent results according to the NALFA NALFA

The NALFA test is a standardized method to assess the water behaviour of laminate flooring. The megaloc aqua protect system enables protection against edge swelling and ensures a durable floor to enjoy.

Daily use, cleaning and splash situations can consequently no longer damage the floor.

Predecessor of the fold down locking system is the so-called angle - angle installation which under the name of easy connect is still in use today particularly in entry price point products.

Decisive for the EasyConnect patent is the special shape of the self-compensating angled joint. "EasyConnect" was registered with the European Patent Office in 2002 - as a glue-free laying system - under the EU Patent No. 1165 906. Patent registrations in the USA under US 6,505,452 B1 and a laying patent under EP 1200 690 B1 followed in 2003. The EasyConnect laying system heralded the era of glue-free laying systems.

The CLASSEN Group has not only broken new ground in terms of materials and product structure; new technical possibilities are also being used in design: The CLASSEN Group prints the entire range of healthy design and wall coverings directly and digitally during the production process. Single-pass systems from Hymmen with eight rows and 19 print heads each, which achieve a resolution of 360 dpi in the decorative image, are used for this purpose. Decor-synchronous surface embossing is also possible - using embossing rollers and directly in the digital printing process.

From manufacture to industrial digital printing for laminate flooring and design floor coverings.

The digital printing process makes production flexible in many directions. For example, laminate flooring and design floor coverings can be produced in high volumes as well as in smaller quantities.

Individual decors and colour variants can be adapted to the wishes of CLASSEN customers. Further scenarios could take the form of decor developments of the customer or those of the CLASSEN Design Centre. In this way the sales partners of CLASSEN receive individually designed floor coverings.

Digital printing opens up completely new possibilities for the CLASSEN Group and its sales partners, because from now on it is possible to react much more quickly and flexibly to new design and decor trends.

LLT makes the difference!

The special features of this process are the combination of different surface finishing technologies and the merging of previously separate work steps into one production run. This offers considerable advantages in terms of product quality. At the same time, this process opens up further possibilities for energy- efficient and thus lower-emission production.

The patented LLT process offers numerous advantages over conventional laminate flooring production methods:

  1. Energy-saving production
  2. Highly transparent surfaces
  3. Significantly better, more realistic decor display
  4. Individually pronounced gloss levels
  5. Optimum appearance and feel of the laminate flooring surface

Das von CLASSEN erfundene „LLT-Verfahren“ (LLT = Liquid Laminate Technology) vereint diese beiden bisher völlig getrennten Arbeitsgänge in einer Produktionslinie. In dieser Linie werden die Trägerplatten zunächst oben mit einem Dekorpapier und unten mit einer Trägerschicht beschichtet und anschließend verbunden.

LLT makes the difference in microscratch!

Micro-scratch resistance is evaluated in two different procedures according to EN 16094:2012. In procedure A, the gloss change is evaluated and in procedure B, the scratch pattern is classified. The rating scale ranges from 1 (gloss change 70% or many scratches, dull abrasion).

The LLT process achieves the rating MSR-A1 (gloss changes <10%) and MSR-B1 (no scratches).

The Short Cycle Press process achieves the rating MSR-A3 (gloss change between 30% and 50%) and MSR-B3 (many clearly visible scratches)

From the fine pore to the chrome-like surface structure.

By special techniques in the refinement of laminate decors with unusual surface structures CLASSEN shows highest product authority.

Beginning with smooth surfaces or those without structure to highly polished, super matt or those with the feel of an oiled surface many structure variants are available:

  • Matt and fine pore surfaces are mainly found in the entry-level price variants.
  • Tangible fine structures or matt structures complete the range of surface finishes.
  • Synchronous structure, hand-scraped surface or glossy pore form the next stage of a high-quality sensitive surface refinement.
  • Leather and cast iron as well as stone, slate and lacquer are among the extraordinary special structures and are further proof of CLASSEN's excellent surface competence.
