Symmetrix SmartSeam FRP tile panels bring vibrancy to any space and are the ideal solution for covering old or damaged ceramic tile. Initially a smooth FRP panel, Symmetrix is physically grooved with state-of-the-art CNC equipment to emulate the look and depth of tile with grout. Whether you’re planning a new construction or a commercial retrofit, these faux tile panels are:
Installs in hours, not days, over most any surface.
Fiberglass core provides serious impact resistance.
Doesn’t crack like ceramic tile grout and resists stains, mold and mildew.
Sani-coat sealer makes the entire surface easy to clean.
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.
What does SmartSeam technology mean for you? It means no more division molding or seam joints which creates a nice, clean, uninterrupted look!
Save time and money by covering old, dated ceramic tile. Avoid demolition dust, debris, and spending unnecessary dollars. See the before and after spaces that were transformed in hours, not days.
Marlite’s proprietary Sani-Coat Sealer offers protection against staining that ceramic tile simply can’t compete with. Watch Symmetrix outperform ceramic tile in the “hot sauce” challenge.
Symmetrix SmartSeam is available in five standard color combinations and 5 Universal Tile Patterns.
