Recently listed smart building material company ClearVue Technologies can now sell its high-tech solar curtain wall in Australian and New Zealand markets with investors welcoming the news.
The product – which is an outer covering of a building which is non-structural, designed to keep the weather out and permit maximum natural light penetration – has now been successfully tested to Australian and New Zealand standards AS/NZS 428:2008.
AS/NZS 4284:2008 is the mandatory minimum specification for glass curtain walls used and sold in Australia and New Zealand. Standards testing – which took place at industry test laboratories, Intertek – is a key requirement for the commercialisation of the solar window curtain wall product in the Australian and New Zealand markets.
The successful testing demonstrates the adaptability of ClearVue’s IGU and means ClearVue can now supply its curtain wall for use in all of its upcoming demonstration sites, but more importantly ClearVue can now engage with customers in Australia and New Zealand for initial projects requiring a curtain wall solution – most modern mid to high-rise structures,” ClearVue Executive Chairman, Victor Rosenberg has said.
“Completion of this successful testing for ClearVue’s curtain wall for AU/NZ further confirms to investors that since our listing in May we are successfully meeting key tangible milestones in the commercialisation plan in our Prospectus.”
Tests undertaken to verify product performance and conformance to the AU/NZ standards included structural testing; air infiltration testing; water penetration testing; and strength testing.
ClearVue has recently commenced similar standards testing for its products for the US market.
Shares in ClearVue have gained 2.5c or 8% to 34c on Monday.
