Wetwall™ Water-Proof Wall Panel System
Transforming bathroom design, the Wetwall Water-Proof Wall Panel System continues to make a splash for Wilsonart at KBIS. With a collection of 15 beautiful, water-proof, lightweight panels that are perfect for wet area applications, Wetwall can transform everything from shower walls and bath surrounds to accent walls and cladding.

Wetwall is easy to install in as little as two and a half hours and goes over gypsum board, green board and fiberboard.
