PentaFloor is proud to announce the launch of the latest offering from Shaw Contract in South Africa – the Rapid Select range. The ideal flooring choice for quick turnaround projects without compromising on quality, performance or design, Rapid Select has been developed specifically by Shaw Contract for the EMEA (Europe, Middle East, Africa) region.

PentaFloor is the exclusive distributor of Shaw Contract products in South Africa and, to introduce Rapid Select into the local market, PentaFloor is offering free installation of Rapid Select in Johannesburg, Durban and Cape Town until December 2018.

Made in the UK and backed by the Shaw 10-year commercial warrantee, Rapid Select offers choice, speed of delivery and Cradle to Cradle™ certification; together with a choice of specially edited, influential carpet tile styles and colours that meet the needs of modern, functional commercial interiors.

Says Andrew Jackson, Marketing Director EMEA at Shaw Contract:
“Working with our customers, we know that there is market demand for a functional but well-designed product at a cost-effective price. We also know that contractors are working on tight project timescales, so our new quick delivery option has been introduced to meet that need.”

Choice of shape, colour and style

With two carpet tile shapes and three styles there are plenty of options with Rapid Select to create an individual look, whatever the floor space or area. Rapid Select provides the designer with the ability to easily mix styles, colours and shapes to define commercial spaces and achieve an original design.

Rapid Select offers three contemporary carpet tile styles:

  • Nook is an eye-catching off-set square design, with high and low textured pattern effects, and provides an option to create both interest and a flooring feature. Available in eight colours, 50cm x 50cm.
  • Roam offers soft organic movement that mimics a natural texture often found in nature. The elongated plank tile format allows designers the flexibility to create unique floor layout designs. Available in six colours, 25cm x 100cm.
  • Graph features a network of lines that overall create a small-scale pattern; and takes its inspiration from the linear patterning of graph paper. Available in eight colours, 50cm x 50cm.

Rapid Select is available with Shaw Contract’s new TaskWorx® backing. Maintaining Shaw Contract’s commitment to sustainability, Taskworx is Cradle to Cradle Certified™. It is suitable for high-traffic areas and withstands heavy wear without deterioration. Rapid Select carpet tiles are also manufactured using Shaw’s EcoSolution Q™ nylon fibre, which is engineered for cleanability, elastic recovery, resilience and strength.
