The Newly Patented Elastilon System allows the installation of Solid and Engineered Hardwoods Floors right over concrete - above or below grade.
No nails, no glue, no mess.
TORONTO, March 17, 2015 /CNW/ - Toronto based Supra Floors/ElastilonUSA announced today that it has obtained a 20 year patent on its Elastilon product, a quick and easy revolutionary solution for consumers and professionals that allows the installation of hardwood floors without glue or nails.
Currently sold by major retailer stores and on-line (Home Depot, Lowes Lumber Liquidators), Elastilon Strong self-adhesive installation system, has been used for more than a decade in Europe by professional installers and homeowners alike. It can be installed with any wood floors at up to 70% faster than traditional methods and without any special equipment. Elastilon creates a "free floating" floor out of solid or engineered wood that can expand or contract with changing moisture conditions without the gapping, cupping or creaking that can occur with nail or glue-down installations.
Elastilon's patented closed-cell polyethylene construction can be laid over any type of clean and level surface, from new concrete sub-floors to wood and tile. Elastilon's non-toxic self-adhesive forms a lifetime bond with the wood flooring, protecting it from moisture below and providing a warmer, quieter, more comfortable floor in the basement or anywhere else in the home or office.
"The patent is an important reminder to the industry," says ElastilonUSA President Levana Schwartz, "that this product cannot be copied. It also serves to reassure consumers," she adds, "that Elastilon is unique in its abilities to deliver a VOC free, clean and free floating floor, easy to walk on, minutes after installation."
Elastilon comes with a Life-Time Warranty.
