Quick-Step has been granted patent number US 6 786 019 by the United States Patent office for its beveled edge products. This patent relates to the production of covered beveled edges on the Quick-Step laminate flooring panels.

"In 2001, Quick-Step was the first to introduce a beveled edge laminate flooring plank. What started out as a unique niche market has quickly become a desirable addition to traditional laminate planks, as consumers place increasing value on the aesthetic qualities of laminate flooring," said Piet Huyghe, president of Quick-Step N.C. LLC.
