NATURAL SLATE | THE PERFECT MATERIAL FOR ANY FACADE
The new CUPACLAD® systems were created to fill the need to adapt natural slate to new architectural styles and trends, which call for more ecological and sustainable construction.
Slate is a completely natural product with unbeatable technical properties that provide considerable added value to any facade project.
Used since time immemorial, natural slate is an exceptionally durable material that lasts more than 100 years, making it the ideal material for any type of façade project.
Our more than 100 years of experience as natural slate producers enable us to select the most suitable slates to be used in facade, ensuring a perfect fit in all CUPACLAD® systems.
Used since roman times, natural slate is long–lived, remarkably durable, fire resistant and naturally waterproof. Its aesthetic and technical properties remain unaltered, keeping the elegance and character for much longer than any man made alternatives.
Each slate is handcrafted by our skilled “crafstmen”, with no additional treatment required. Natural slate is only subject to extraction and mechanical transformation; there are no chemical or heating processes involved as with alternative materials. This and its unparalleled durability result in natural slate being a material with an extremely low carbon footprint.
Characterised by its natural colour and individual texture, natural slate is a material that can enhance the value and beauty of any property. Every slate is unique giving an unparalleled character to any project remaining unaltered for many years.
