Australian-listed smart building materials company ClearVue is another step closer to achieving US sales of its revolutionary solar power producing glass units, receiving the coveted UL Mark.
The company’s IGU product has now met all of the requirements for certification, with the UL Mark giving the official seal of approval for sales in the United States as well as a handful of other international markets.
UL has worked intensively with the ClearVue team over the last 12 months to test the product, with protocols assessing for electrical safety and product performance.
Commenting on completion of the UL certification ClearVue Executive Chairman Victor Rosenberg has said:
“The UL certification of the ClearVue product is a major achievement for the company and is to date the most important step forward in ClearVue’s commercialisation path – clearing the way for product sales into the USA and other territories.
“The ClearVue PV IGU combines both glazing and solar into one product and is unlike anything the UL have had to deal with before.
“Notwithstanding this, the UL with ClearVue’s assistance, were able to design a very detailed and rigorous testing protocol that has tested all aspects of the product in relation to both its safety and performance with the product meeting all such requirements.
“The UL certification of the ClearVue product provides peace of mind to architects, façade engineers, developers and building owners when specifying or installing the ClearVue products into major building projects.”
With the completion of the UL Mark, UL are now mandated to inspect ClearVue’s OEM manufacturer factories for quality control in manufacturing. This process is underway currently and will continue on a quarterly basis.
ClearVue recently signed a supply agreement which has seen the company establish a manufacturing arrangement with BeyondPV, which has a PV construction facility based in Taiwan.
