Bonneli, Trinterio Marketing New Locking System

Brussels, Belgium, Dec. 26, 2013 -- Bonneli and Trinterio said they have formed a partnership to commercialize a flooring locking system called PressXpress.

Bonneli, according to a press release, has the exclusive right to license the product on behalf of Trinterio Group to third parties worldwide.

The companies said PressXpress is a completely new fold down system for flooring panels, exclusively owned and patented by Trinterio, that doesn't violate third party patents.

The companies said the technology requires "one single locking action" both horizontally and vertically.

Belgium-based Trinterio Group produces laminate flooring marketed under the Balterio brand and MDF fiber board panels marketed under the Spanolux brand.

Valinge has claimed that the system infringes on its patents. However, a regional German court suspended infringement proceedings until a cancellation proceeding with the German Patent and Trademark Office is decided.
