Megaloc laminate flooring is one of the most modern and ingenuous flooring locking system solutions. If you’re looking for easy lock laminate flooring, this is the system for you. With Megaloc laminate flooring, the locking system holds your laminate planks together.
What Is The Megaloc System?
The Megaloc System is the locking system between planks that gives the laminate flooring a smooth and seamless surface that stays tight for years to come. Each plank has a tongue and groove that clicks together to create a tight lock that will hold the planks together.
Who Makes Megaloc?
Classen, a leading company in the laminate flooring industry, created and patented the Megaloc locking system. Classen sells their Megaloc laminate flooring under the Classen and Inhaus flooring manufacturer brands. The floors are made in Germany and represents highest quality and design standards in the flooring industry.
The Megaloc laminate flooring installation is one of the easiest locking systems to use when it comes to the laminate flooring industry. Classen states:
“Millions of square meters of our Megaloc have already been installed successfully on the market, and are delighting our customers. The situation is now getting really interesting for other manufacturers, as they move to make ‘just fold down’ the new standard in floor laying.”
What Makes Megaloc So Special?
Classen is one of the leaders in the laminate flooring world. All their floors are made in Germany where special developments make Classen flooring unique. The Megaloc locking system is DIY friendly, and makes installation simple and seamless.
With their patented locking system, Classen has taken virtually all the hassle out of installing laminate flooring. While some laminate floors require you to use a tapping block and pull-bar to install, Megaloc laminate flooring has a locking-clip in the short grooves which allows the next plank to be locked directly from above. This allows you to install your new laminate floor up to 3 times faster – even if you’ve never done laminate flooring installation before!
You simply connect the tongue of one plank to the groove of the other plank. The Megaloc laminate flooring system is not only easy to install but it can be installed very fast. You can easily do it yourself even if you do not have experience with installing laminate flooring.
So How Does Megaloc Work?
Megaloc laminate flooring is definitely a leader for laminate locking systems because of its simplicity. You also don’t have to beat up your new planks while installing them by using a tapping block. The installation process is much faster when installing Megaloc laminate flooring versus buying tools to install other locking systems.
Laminate floor with a Megaloc system has a locking mechanism on the short side. The panels are simply dropped down into the joint of the previously laid row. As planks are lowered, a very special patented insert/lock, located on the short end of the laminate, will lock the plank in place. Once the panel is installed into place, the locking element also locks and a stable connection is created. Then all you have to do is press along the short side when you hear the click. Your plank is installed.
Megaloc installation steps: position, lower, lock into place – and that’s it.
- Position the planks where you expect to lay the new Megaloc laminate flooring.
- To connect the planks, have one plank on the ground and lower the other at an angle.
- Connect the tongue of the plank that you’re lowering into the groove of the other plank so they lock. The lock is on the shorter edge of the laminate.
