The Ultimate Water-Proof Surface by Wetwall (A Wilsonart Company)
Bathroom renovations continue to be one of the top improvements made in both residential and commercial settings, but wall renovation choices are often limited to beautiful, yet expensive materials like marble or lower-cost, unattractive solutions like metal shower units. After three years of research and product refinement, Wilsonart Engineered Surfaces officially introduces Wetwall.
Wetwall is the ultimate surface for [interior] areas where water is ever-present — from tub skirts and shower walls, to wainscoting, wall cladding and backsplashes. Instead of tile and grout, Wilsonart developed a panel system that is water-proof, lightweight, stylish, and simple to install; it can even be installed over existing tile.
Wetwall can be configured for single wall, corner, and alcove baths/showers. Simple, innovative tongue-and-groove installation allows for easy customization. Postformed panels can also extend beyond bath/shower surrounds for a seamless look. The range of Wetwall panels provides flexibility when you want to shape the perfect bathroom.
A collection of 17 on-trend and in-demand designs, the Wetwall Water-Proof Wall Panel System withstands everyday use thanks to a patented water-proof solution. It’s engineered for easy installation, lasting beauty, and low cost of ownership. Once installed, it’s dependable and requires little effort. Because it’s grout-free, it’s also simple to maintain and clean; simply wipe clean with soap and a damp cloth for lasting beauty.

The panels of the patented Wetwall water-proof wall panel system are constructed of High Pressure Decorative Laminates that are bonded with a water-proof adhesive on a homogenous, lightweight, water-proof core composed of cellulosic materials, glass fibers, polypropylene and a bonding agent; the result is a durable, water-proof and dimensionally stable panel system. The panels can feature a flat edge, tongue-and-groove edge, or a decorative bullnose edge. They can be installed in the field and do not require any special or dedicated tooling. It takes an average of 2.5 hours to complete a tub/shower surround.
Acceptable installation substrates include regular gypsum board, moisture-resistant gypsum board (“greenboard”), cement backer board, plaster, and existing hard tile.
Panel width is approximately 11mm or 0.43 inches. The common panel sizes for wet applications are 30”, 32”, 34”, 36” X 60”, 72” and 96.”
