CUPACLAD® INSTALLATION | PHASES


CUPACLAD® reinvents the traditional technique for placing natural slate, offering greater simplicity and significant savings in installation times.

The slates are specially selected from our 16 quarries.

The fixing systems used in CUPACLAD® systems are the result of a meticulous design process performed by our engineers and these were especially designed to ensure quick, secure installation.

VENTILATION

The air gap needs to have a minimum 2 cm cross section, even in the narrowest zones. At the base of the facade, the air gap opening is protected by a perforated profile, which as well as including the necessary ventilation holes, represents a protection against rodents.


FLASHINGS & CORNER DETAILS

The topping off profiles need to be made from folded galvanised steel, zinc or aluminium sheet and are intended to resolve the atypical points in the work (corners, window reveal, facade copping, etc.).
