The intelligent choice in permanent PVC walling solutions.

RETAINING WALL OR 40 STOREYS

PERMAFORM is a permanent formwork system used to rapidly build internal and external load-bearing walls.

Made from durable PVC, lightweight PERMAFORM panels clip and slide together and are core-filled with concrete to form walls. The panels remain in place as sacrificial formwork, leaving a high quality, clean, straight surface with minimal deflection.

The PERMAFORM system is available in four profile widths – 110mm, 155mm, 200mm and 250 mm – making it ideal for any application from party walls and corridors through to columns, lift shafts and load bearing walls up to 40 storeys.

VIEW OUR PROFILES

110MM wide, carries a single reinforcement bar.
155MM wide, carries two reinforcement bars.
200MM wide, can carry one, two or three reinforcement bars.
255MM wide, can carry two or four reinforcement bars.

BENEFITS

THE SMARTEST
WAY TO BUILD

PROFITFLEXIBILITY SPEEDSAFETY QUALITYGREEN

1. FINISH PROJECTS FASTER

  • Up to 3x faster than conventional methods
  • 150mof walls installed in one day by a crew of three workers
  • Pour walls on day one after the slab
  • Wet weather doesn’t impact schedule
  • Not dependent on speed or availability of crane
  • Reo placement requires less or no tying
  • No stripping, waterproofing, pest or crack control
  • No requirement to apply finishes to surface

2. GREATER PROFITS

  • Save on scaffolding, bracing and internal supports
  • Reduce skilled labour and trades
  • Save on excavation
  • Less wet trades and no waterproofing, pest or crack control
  • Save on heavy cranage and labour intensive vertical formwork
  • Reduce clean up, waste, landfill , bins and traffic control

3. HIGHEST QUALITY

  • PERMAFORM has more PVC per square metre than our closest competitor
  • Crack resistant panel faces are 2.5mm thick
  • PERMAFORM panels have a water and UV resistant,  high-gloss, clean, white straight finish – the best in the market
  • Once assembled, PERMAFORM’s proprietary locking system does not come apart – meaning no blow-outs

4. SAFER WORKSITES

  • Less trades and staff on site means less risk
  • Panels come pre-cut to measure, so no dangerous cutting activities and less waste
  • Exposed reo is a significant safety risk. PERMAFORM greatly reduces the amount of time dangerous reo is exposed
  • Remove the need for large tower cranes
  • Stripping formwork is a high-risk activity with exposed nails, falling objects and sharp edges – PERMAFORM removes this activity altogether

5. DESIGN FLEXIBILITY

  • Fewer internal supports means more open plan spaces
  • Reduced need for beams gives extra column-free space and a lower building height
  • Continue internal load bearing walls through to external blade walls and reduce the need for costly transfer beams
  • Reduce footings and slab thickness
  • Eliminate concealed concrete columns within a building’s interior

6. GREENER FOOTPRINT

  • Greatly reduced use of materials such as steel and plywood
  • Custom ordered panels mean less wastage on site goes into landfill
  • PERMAFORM proudly uses recycled PVC and is  recyclable
  • Removes the need for toxic chemicals in waterproofing and pest control
  • Reduces the amount of concrete required in slabs and beams

CERTIFICATIONS AND COMPLIANCE

The PERMAFORM system has been thoroughly researched, developed, tested and certified – nationally and internationally – to meet or exceed Australia’s highest industry standards set by the regulatory body – the ABCB (Australian Building Codes Board) and Standards Australia.

We are also committed to continual improvement and are proud to be ISO:9001 certified.

The system has been independently certified to meet the specifications of the NCC (National Construction Code) and Australian Standard 3600: Concrete Structures and AS 3610: Formwork for Concrete.

COMPLIANCE AND THE NCC

Fire safety regulation has become a hot-button issue in the global construction industry.

In Australia, governments and regulatory bodies are displaying a greater zeal in enforcing fire performance requirements.

The pressure on multi-storey projects to meet onerous demands on cost, resources and time is exacerbated by a burdensome web of complex and difficult-to-understand standards, regulations and codes.

With the release of the new NCC:2019 (National Construction Code) new regulations have been introduced regarding combustibility of materials.

There are a number of concessions allowing combustible materials to be used when a Performance Solution is developed. Many PERMAFORM projects have been quickly and easily certified by providing a Performance Solution report, which is relatively fast and inexpensive.

TESTIMONIALS
WHAT OUR CLIENTS ARE SAYING

Dominic Rego (developer) and Harry Kalal (builder) – avid users of walling systems – have taken the plunge to trial PERMAFORM for our latest high-end project in Malabar.  We were very impressed with the quality, strength and durability of the product.

The performance of PERMAFORM saved us hours of work.  The corner system is so strong that we did not have to strap the most critical parts of the project prone to blowouts from our previous supplier.

The process was seamless from the sales admin team, to dispatch and accounts, light years ahead of the competition.

My order was placed in the afternoon and delivered in full as agreed the next morning.  – I felt like a VIP client from the beginning. I recommend PERMAFORM for the service alone.

We regard Permaform as our walling system partner of choice for all our future projects.

Well done to the entire PERMAFORM team!

Dominic Rego

Developer, (On behalf of) Harry's Building and Renovations

We provide concrete, formwork and steel fixing packages. I’m 100% confident in recommending PERMAFORM – both the team and the product are the best to work with.

Bruno Romeo

Director, Elevate Constructions

I’ve installed PERMAFORM on a number of projects and it is by far my preferred system to work with.

Simon Mak

Director, SWM Building

We complete bulk excavation and walling packages for our builders. Whenever I’m asked for advice, I recommend PERMAFORM straight up. It’s the system I’ve had the best experience with, – great service, easiest install and the best quality finish against its competitors.

Chris Barabro

Director, EarthClass Civil

Our crew loves installing Permaform. It’s easy, fast, light and the best quality. No blowouts or deflection. Easy peasy Japanesy 🙂

Joe DeMassey

Director, Built and Civil

My company offers full service contracting across excavation, formwork, steel fixing, shotcreting, hand piering and retaining walls.

My crew loves working with Permaform. Our recent project, a warehouse, had 10m walls at its apex and PERMAFORM didn’t flinch once. It’s a great product and great people to deal with. It’s like LEGO for grownups but you get paid to build it.
