Mapes Panels offers new Mapes-R

Mapes Panels offers new Mapes-R "Plus" infill panels for use in storefront and curtainwall applications. Previously unattainable R-values can be achieved without modifying the existing glazing pockets by rabbeting the interior edges of a thicker panel with additional insulation. Mapes-R "Plus" panels are designed to fit any size glazing pocket and can increase R-values by up to 300 percent. Mapes-R "Plus" panels can be used in glazing pockets as small as 1/4-inch for retrofit application and values up to R-27 are possible within a 1-inch glazing pocket.
