Her recent product launches include Mapeheat, a floor-heating system of products and Mapesonic RM, a rubber underlayment designed to mitigate sound between floors in condo towers. These systems are considered sustainable in that radiant floor-heating is a more energy efficient way to heat a space than traditional forced air methods.
