Spandrel Back Pans & Infill Panels

Back Pans are substructure components used in curtain-wall systems either behind a metal panel or spandrel glass. Typically, they are used by Glass and Glazing trades and are sealed and attached to the curtainwall frame behind opaque glazing areas. They can provide insulation, fire safety, thermal and moisture protection.
