Permaform saves you time and money while giving you the ultimate in design flexibility, a huge variety of finishing options and peace of mind from certification for fire, acoustic and thermal properties.
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 loadbearing walls. The panels remain in place leaving an excellent substrate for applied finishes such as acrylic render or paint.
Permaform panels are available in a variety of width profiles to suit most engineering and architectural design requirements.

Use the Permaform system on your next project and finish fast.
+ Our simple ‘clip and slide’ panels fit together fast – a team of four assembles 150sqm of walling in just a day, a time saving of up to 50% compared to traditional block laying.
+ Install your walls on day one after pouring the slab
+ Turn over floor cycles, including slabs, faster than any conventional method
+ Don’t let wet weather interrupt your schedule
+ Reduce your lead times for vertical elements
+ Your project won’t be driven by the speed and availability of the crane
+ Vertical elements on projects with multiple buildings but limited crane access can be built at the same time
+ Installing steel reinforcement is a breeze – Permaform’s hollow core allows you to easily and accurately slide in horizontal reo with no need for tying
+ Permaform panels stay in place - no stripping means no waiting for the pour to set
+ Permaform panels are light-weight, allowing for easier and quicker unloading and materials handling
+ Structural elements come together quickly, meaning you can start fit-outs sooner
+ Fully utilise your floor slab formworkers – increase the team you have available to install walls
+ Save time on structural elements: fewer deep beams, beams between floors, transfer structures and smaller footings
+ Save time on scaffolding, bracing and internal supports
+ Remove waterproofing, crack control and pest control from your program
