HIGHLIGHTS

  • ClearVue IGU products now UL certified for triple glazed IGU panels of up to 3.6 sqm
  • UL Mark can now be applied to all ClearVue products including large format IGU panels
  • New certification extends the existing UL certification to apply to large format glazing panels for high and medium rise construction opportunities in the US

14 June 2022: Smart building materials company ClearVue Technologies Limited (ASX:CPV OTC:CVUEF) (“ClearVue” or the  “Company”) is pleased to  announce that, further to its earlier announcements of 28 November 2019 and 30 September 2019  made in relation to its certification and product testing, it has now received UL certification (UL 61730) for its triple glazed IGU panels of 3.6 sqm or less (panel(s) tested were 2.4m high x 1.5m wide, but different configurations are possible including 3m high x 1.2m wide).

This new UL testing builds upon earlier testing to increase the size envelope of the ClearVue PV IGU to a maximum tested area of 3.6 sqm and all sizes below that. Panel testing has to date been constrained based on the size of available testing equipment. 

Following receipt from UL of a ‘Notice of Completion and Authorization to Apply the UL Mark’, ClearVue and its licensees may now apply the UL Mark to new ClearVue IGU products made at nominated factory locations and to products made in accordance with the approved specifications for the ClearVue IGU product of any size up to 3.6 sqm.

Executive Chairman Victor Rosenberg commented:

“As announced on 28 November 2019 the UL Certification of the ClearVue product was a major achievement for the company and one of the most significant steps forward in our commercialisation path for the Company at the time – clearing the way for early product sales into the USA and other international markets.  The upscaling of the product, and now certification of the same, is a similarly important achievement for the Company.

This new certification takes the UL certification and extends it to be applied to large format glazing panels used in high and medium rise construction opening the door to these types of sales in our key sales territory of the US, but also other territories where the UL certification and UL Mark are used.

As previously noted, the UL certification and our ability to apply the UL Mark to the ClearVue IGU products provides peace of mind to architects, façade engineers, developers and building owners when specifying the ClearVue products into major building projects.”
