Company Profile

Pentafloor’s® brands have been serving the networking environment jointly for more than 60 years. Over this time, our industry experts have been innovating, developing and designing systems in close collaboration with end-users, to meet the high expectations and requirements of clients and professionals alike in an ever-evolving data and networking environment.

Pentafloor® was started in 2005 by Larry and Bianca Shakinovsky. Our main aim is to supply affordable, high quality, flexible access flooring solutions, together with superior quality floor finishes, to a wide range of projects of all sizes in the commercial, hospitality and residential sectors.

Since 2005, this venture has grown exponentially and, in 2012, we acquired the business of Solidfeel Access Flooring, previously Donn Access Flooring. We also acquired the raised access floor division of LaFarge (South Africa) in 2013. Since then, our three prominent brands have joined forces and have the advantage of sharing 60 years of technical expertise and track record without compromising each brand’s individual heritage.

Today, Pentafloor manufactures, supplies and installs the three most prominent and recognized brands of access flooring in South Africa – the Solidfeel SF-RANGE®, the LF-RANGE®, and the FS-RANGE®. Strategic placement of our manufacturing division on the African continent, together with our strategic alliances, guarantee that we can deliver cost-effective, superior solutions with quality products that instil confidence in our clients, from South Africa to Dubai.

The quality of our products is the foundation for our guarantee and this is what instils confidence in our customers. Our products undergo a stringent quality control process that includes testing with advanced analytical equipment in a dedicated testing centre. This guarantees that our products comply with or exceed industry standards with a 100% pass rate. All products are manufactured in an ISO 9001 accredited facility, which enables us to identify, measure, control and improve the core business processes that ultimately lead to our improved business performance.
