The sandwich-style Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) panels are lightweight and are manually assembled on site.
They quickly and easily clip and slide together and are concrete-filled, creating load-bearing walls.
The panels remain in place leaving an excellent substrate for applied finishes such as acrylic render or paint.

 

Permaform panels come in a variety of width profiles to suit most engineering and architectural designs.
