Crane Composites Touts New Fiberglass Sidewall

Crane Composites, a subsidiary of Crane Co., announced a new premium exterior sidewall product for the RV market.

Crane Composites entered the RV market over 30 years ago. From towables to motorhomes, their fiberglass sidewalls are featured on many major RV models.

Crane Composites is introducing its Noble ICON — a composite-backed sheet glass sidewall that offers an automotive-like appearance that will maintain a smoother surface appearance over time while also reducing weight, the company said in a release.

Noble ICON’s proprietary formulation was engineered from the ground up by Crane Composites’ technical and R&D teams. Their goal was simple — equip RVs with a sidewall that will better withstand the rigors of an RV’s lifecycle.

Mike Cheney, Crane Composites’ vice president of RV, 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.”

Noble ICON offers mirror-quality reflection and maintains its appearance over time with up to 50% improvement in surface appearance throughout an RV’s lifecycle versus current alternatives. It has completed comprehensive testing and also includes impactful weight reduction over the current leading sheet glass for improved fuel economy or cargo capacity, the company said.
