Marlites Innovative Sani-Coat topcoat seals the groove of each Symmetrix Panel offering several advantages over ceramic tile grout lines.
  • Protects against mold and mildew growth.
  • Is easy to clean, requiring no brushing or scrubbing.
  • Won’t deteriorate due to moisture or dirt.
  • Possesses the same outstanding stain resistance as the panel face.
  • Won’t crack.
  • Not intended for excessive moisture areas such as showers and car washes.
  • The same trim pieces are utilized for both Standard Symmetrix as well as Symmetrix with SmartSeam. Symmetrix™ SmartSeam panels are specifically engineered to not require the use of division moldings.

    Symmetrix™ FRP Panels are part of a complete system, including trim and base molding, outside cornerguards, adhesices, and silicone sealants.
