Manufactured from NZ's renewable forestry resources. Permacrib has been used internationally for over 25 years in NZ, Taiwan, Singapore, Australia, UK, USA, Korea, Ireland, France, Norway, Denmark, and Hungary to name a few. Permacrib provides an attractive natural timber finish. Compared to other retaining wall systems, the softer appearance of Permacrib can be even further enhanced by selective planting on the face of the structure. This ability to permanently support vegetation affords Permacrib great versatility over a range of landscaping options.
