Composites is pleased to announce the introduction of a new premium sheetglass sidewall product for the RV market.

Crane Composites began their legacy in the RV market over 30 years ago as the first to introduce fiberglass into the market and as the one and only manufacturer of genuine Filon fiberglass. Their Filon and Noble fiberglass sidewalls are industry leading solutions for RVs today. From towables to motorhomes, their fiberglass sidewalls are featured on many major RV models.

Crane Composites is revolutionizing the sheetglass sidewall with a product that outperforms all existing options in the market today. Introducing Noble ICON – a premium composite-backed sheetglass sidewall that offers a best-in-class automotive-like appearance that will maintain a smoother surface appearance over time while also reducing weight.

Noble ICON was designed and engineered from the ground-up with Crane Composites’ technical and R&D teams leveraging their state-of-the-art R&D center. Their goal was simple – equip RV’s with a sidewall that will better withstand the rigors of an RV’s lifecycle. Their tagline for ICON fittingly reminds users of just that; “Bring an ICON on your journey.”

Noble ICON addresses a need in the market for a sidewall that not only has excellent initial surface appearance but continues to look good over the course of an RV’s life.  The RV is exposed to various elements, climate conditions, and shifts in temperature which can result in appearance changes in a typical fiberglass sidewall. Noble ICON steps up to this challenge with up to 50% improvement in post heat cycle surface appearance over the current leading sheetglass. Upon delivery, RV owners will notice its mirror quality distinction of image, which also achieves up to 50% improvement over the current leading sheetglass. Not only does the sidewall look better, but it also includes measurable weight reduction over the current leading sheetglass for potential improved fuel economy or cargo capacity.

Noble ICON has been introduced to major OEMs in the premium/luxury segment and is currently being trialed with a leading Motorhome OEM. Crane Composites is excited about the future and what Noble ICON can offer the RV market.
