Shaw Industries has launched a newly patented VersaLockAG laminate locking system that “involves a comprehensive conversion to a technologically advanced assembly profile,” the company says.

Additionally, the VersaLock AG system “features enhanced seam integrity and an installation process that doesn’t require a hammer and tapping block,” according to Shaw.

The new system will be used on all new laminate introductions, as well as existing styles produced at Shaw’s Ringgold, Ga., and Algona, Wash. manufacturing facilities.
