Viking Plastics fabricate and supply custom made garden planter products for use in residential, commercial and industrial settings.

Many local government authorities now have Water Sensitive Urban Design (WSUD) Policies for new developments including rain garden regulations. These WSUD policies are designed to promote re-use of stormwater, reduce the effect of heavy stormwater flow and reduce the entry of pollutants into stormwater run-off.

Viking Plastics is a specialist in the manufacture of rain gardens, wicking beds, planter boxes and liners – all products that comply with WSUD policies. Whether the project is providing green facades to buildings or carparks, balcony gardens to large apartment complexes, or raingardens and wicking beds, Viking Plastics will work with you to develop sustainable and custom solutions. Paneltim® plastic construction panels are used for the fabrication of planter boxes and tanks. Paneltim® is a 50mm sandwich style panel that boasts impressive stability and rigidity. Paneltim® is also UV stabilised to withstand Australia’s harshest conditions. Liners for planter boxes are fabricated using 6mm thick polyethylene.

Viking’s plastic planter boxes are a lightweight alternative to concrete or steel constructions. Every Viking planter is custom made and can be built to any required dimensions. For long boxes, internal braces are added to ensure the walls remain true when loaded with soil. The boxes can be installed with spacers between each planter to allow for thermal expansion and contraction.

Customers have clad Viking Plastics’ planters in a range of designer finishes including timber, render, decorative contact adhesive and paint. Lighting features can be installed in the external cladding to create stunning visual effects.
