  • Overview
  • Big River is the premier Australian distributor for Permaform – an exciting new product for builders, architects and engineers alike which is set to revolutionise how concrete formed walls are constructed.

    Permaform – quick… strong… straight -is a permanent PVC wall formwork system which remains in place for the life of the structure, designed and produced for Australian conditions.

    This Permaform system is lightweight and easy-to-install. The system allows the builder to replace traditional formwork practices in small to medium density residential applications reducing the overall construction time and costs of the project and without the need for cranes or other lifting equipment. Typically it is used in projects such as hotels, aged care, hospital and health care facilities, medium and high density residential buildings.

    Permaform when concrete filled, replaces the need for traditional block, brick or concrete walls in construction projects. It is clean and efficient and leaves no mess on site. Additional benefits include minimal wastage since it can be ordered to size, a durable finish with ability to apply alternative finishes such as paint, its ability to be completely waterproof, and its versatility.

    Applications include lift shafts and stair wells, basement walls, sheer walls, boundary walls,  core walls, party walls, external walls, retaining walls, retention tanks and civil structure walls.

  • Specifications
  • Permaform is a Polyvinyl Chloride (PVC) permanent wall formwork system which is concrete filled. Permaform acts as sacrificial formwork for concrete walls. It consists of a number of outer sides and edges with interlocking central link panels that join the faces prior to concrete core filling. Once filled, it serves as structural elements allowing the builder to reduce the overall construction time and cost of the project.
