Fire-Rated Glazing

Mappi Supertemper

Mappi SUPERTEMPER, the new frontier for the tempering of fire resistant glass

There are various indicators of resistance and "hardness" of glass that are measured and researched to comply with the various regulations and applications: one of the main ones is the "Surface Stress" which is measured in Mpa. A tempered glass normally has a Surface Stress around> 69 MPa (10,000 Psi); However, there are particular applications, in which the customers' request is to have a “Surface Stress” of 160 Mpa or higher.

Mappi has developed particular technologies which condense the innovative solutions necessary to achieve a Surface Stress of 160 Mpa or higher in the normal dimensions of a tempering furnace. Mappi today introduces a brand, Mappi SUPERTEMPER, which identifies this unique possibility, a brand that all its customers can use to give even more value and prestige to their products.

A Mappi SUPERTEMPER tempering furnace achieves the characteristics necessary to certify E30 glass for fire resistance. A tempering furnace with the Mappi SUPERTEMPER option maintains all the characteristics that have made Ats 4.0 and Fox the milestones for those seeking excellence.



MapeSpan panels are an insulated spandrel glass panel which includes an exterior skin of 1/4″ tempered spandrel glass laminated directly to an insulating core, interior substrate and exterior skin. This unique single source solution provides a low cost, single source glazing option for all curtain wall, spandrel and window application. The interior of the MapeSpan panel can be factory finished to complement any design requirement, including Kynar, Anodized and Baked Enamel. The unitized nature of MapeSpan also reduces field labor and is assembled under a factory controlled environment.


Mapes Panels has developed a large-missile and bullet impact resistant line of laminated panels for use in curtain wall, storefront and window applications where design elements require high impact/high load materials.  MapeShield panels can be used in any framing system design for this type of application. The panels can match any architectural finish including Kynar, Anodized and Baked Enamel. Custom applications including bullet resistant panels are also available.

MapeShield panels now carry Florida Product Approval (#FL32414).
