FreeFit cleared for third U.S. patent

Hong Kong — FreeFit, the original line of loose lay luxury vinyl tiles and planks, has been granted a “notice of allowance” for a third U.S. patent, according Samuel Apicelli, patent attorney and partner at Philadelphia-based Duane Morris.

FreeFit was awarded its first U.S. patent for non-skid-backed loose lay LVT in October 2012. On Sept. 1, 2013, FreeFit was granted a second patent protecting the use of diverse geometric shapes for non-skid, glueless and clickless installations. The third and most recent patent, expected to be finalized this spring, protects the use of all protrusions on the back of flooring – including those utilizing adhesives – for use in non-skid, loose lay installations.

“The examiner has allowed this patent, which is yet another variation of the FreeFit technology,” Apicelli said. “ I expect this third patent to issue within the next few months.”

FreeFit CEO and inventor Dave Reichwein said“Our only interest is to keep developing patented, innovative technologies that make a real difference.”

Depending on the work environment, FreeFit can be completely loose laid, perimeter secured or fully adhered in both residential and commercial environments.
