XFS file system permissions question

I have a NAS that is running on XFS and I was curious as to whether there was any means by which to set Delete permissions akin to the Delete permission on NTFS. I know that all unix based file systems by default offer Read, Write, and eXecute permissions for the Owner User, one in the Owner Group, and a public user. Is there some means via ACLs or something that I could allow a user group to write to a folder, but not delete the files within that directory.
