For use over external masonry, concrete, timber and steel frame walls, CUPACLAD® rainscreen cladding is made from highly durable tectonic slate to create a completely sustainable alternative to other cladding systems that is lightweight and easy to install. 101 series CUPACLAD® uses a totally invisible fixing system and is available in three designs, while 201 series has a visible fixing system.

The 101 and 201 systems were independently assessed across a number of key factors including strength and stability, behaviour in relation to fire, air and water penetration and durability. The certificate verifies that in normal UK exposure conditions, the systems will have a service life in excess of 35 years.

Julian Gomez, Director of Marketing at CUPA PIZARRAS commented:

CUPACLAD® opens up a world of options for designing with natural slate. It is a competitive, totally sustainable alternative for cladding any type of façade and can be adapted to any architectural design.

With the BBA certification for CUPACLAD® 101 and 201, specifiers can also be assured of the systems’ long term performance too.
