Mapes glazing and extruded aluminum products can perform at higher levels beyond the scope of the standards in the LEED rating system. In such cases, project teams have several options when specifying Mapes high performance architectural systems, including a request for a Credit Interpretation Ruling (CIR) from the USGBC Technical and Scientific Advisory Committee. Another strategy is to document the exemplary performance of Mapes assemblies from a whole building design perspective in the LEED Innovation in Design credit category.
