Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) panels grooved to mimic ceramic tile.

The look of tile.
Without the toil.

What is it?

4’x8’ or 4’x4’ interlocking Fiberglass Reinforced Plastic (FRP) panels physically grooved or digitally printed to emulate tile and grout.


Forget traditional panel seam joints and division molding. Our patent-pending SmartSeam technology uses interlocking panels to create a seamless look that extends the full length of a wall.

Symmetrix™ is like ceramic tile, only better.

Symmetrix™ is a smooth FRP panel, physically grooved with state-of-the-art CNC equipment to produce the look and depth of traditional ceramic tile with grout. We top it off with a sani-coat sealer to produce a durable surface and a high-quality appearance.

And put away your tile spacers and wet-saws. Unlike real tile, we made Symmetrix super easy to install and maintain. 

Easy peasy

Install in hours, not days, over nearly any surface.


Fiberglass core provides serious impact resistance.

Tough stuff

Won’t crack like ceramic tile grout. Resists stains, mold and mildew.

Wipe and Go

Sani-coat sealer makes entire surface easy to clean.

Symmetrix™ FRP is one
tough competitor.

Marlite’s proprietary Sani-Coat Sealer offers protection against staining that ceramic tile simply can’t compete with.

Faux subway tile panels, herringbone tile panels, chevron tile panels, and so many more tile patterns can be created using our SmartSeam Technology. With SmartSeam, you get all of the looks of ceramic tile but with the ease of installation you have come to know from Marlite’s FRP panels. These aren’t your normal wall panels.

Marlite looks at current trends and stocks a range of popular FRP tile patterns that are available with short lead times.
