Channahon, IL – May 2nd 2024 — Crane Composites, a subsidiary of Crane Company (NYSE:CR), the world’s leading provider of fiberglass reinforced plastic (FRP) materials, is pleased to announce the introduction of a new premium exterior sidewall product for the RV market.

Crane Composites began their legacy in the RV market over 30 years ago. 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 RV sidewalls with a product that surpasses 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’s proprietary formulation was engineered from the ground up with technical and R&D teams leveraging their state-of-the-art R&D center. Their goal was simple – equip RVs with a sidewall that will better withstand the rigors of an RV’s lifecycle.

Crane Composites’ Vice President RV, Mike Cheney, said: “Noble ICON addresses a need in the market for a lightweight sidewall that not only has incredible initial surface appearance but continues to look good over the course of an RV’s life.” ICON’s mirror quality reflection makes a distinct first impression. Noble ICON then steps up to the challenge of maintaining its appearance over time with up to 50% improvement in surface appearance throughout an RVs lifecycle versus current alternatives. Not only does ICON look better, but it also includes impactful weight reduction over the current leading sheetglass for improved fuel economy or cargo capacity.

Noble ICON has completed comprehensive testing, outperforming existing sidewalls in the segment. Crane Composites is excited about the future and what Noble ICON brings to the RV market.
