This type of flooring was invented in 1996 by the Swedish company Välinge Aluminium and was distributed as Alloc and Fiboloc.  A system of holding flooring panels together was also developed at the same time by Unilin from Belgium in 1997 and distributed as Quick-Step flooring.  Both companies have had many legal battles, but most glueless locking flooring is now made under license from either company.

Remove the skirting boards

A small gap is needed where the flooring fits up to a immovable object, I.E. Walls, Kitchen cupboards etc, to allow for expansion.   The usual way of doing so, is to leave the gap, and a small quarter profile beading trim fitted.  In my honest opinion, this looks “amateur” and certainly not something I would want in my home.  Removing the skirting boards, and replacing them with new, matching the flooring is a much better way to go.  Turning the job from OK, to fabulous.

Internal Door Frames.

The internal door frames are cut for the flooring to go under.  A much neater job than trying to cut the flooring accurately with a jigsaw.  Something that you can never get “quite right”  The professional way to do it it by cutting the door frame and slotting the laminate flooring underneath.
