See @FullWidthRule symbol.

PostScript refman says that zero-width line is the thinnest line that
device can render, i.e. the one device pixel wide (though, since this
is device dependent and is practically invisible on high resolution
devices, this practice is warned against).  So setting linewidth
parameter to @FullWidthRule to zero is, probably, what you want.

Hope it helps.
