50 Year guarantee
We offer a 50-years guarantee for every CUPA EXCELLENCE 8 slate against any imperfections that may affect the slate roof impermeability.

Our exhaustive control of the whole process enables us to offer a range of natural slates that exceed all the international quality standards. Every CUPA natural slate pallet has a unique barcode that provides the products full traceability.
Sales counselling and technical support
Our UK based sales, specification and marketing departments are at your disposal to organise meetings or visits and support the entire development process.
Furthermore, our technical support team offers developers a consultancy service where all your natural slate questions will be answered.
The importance of provenance
We are the only slate producer to carry out the entire manufacturing process in-house, combining traditional craftsmanship with the latest extraction techniques and maintaining total control over quality at every stage.
When you choose a CUPA PIZARRAS slate, you can be certain that the slate you receive is exactly what you have specified. All CUPA slate pallets include a label with a unique barcode that accurately identifies the natural slate inside.
Opting for peace of mind, choose CUPA PIZARRAS
Too often, ‘white label’ slates of unspecified origins can spoil the aesthetic of a project due to their inconsistent performance. By contrast, all pallets of genuine CUPA PIZARRAS slate come with a Certificate of Authenticity and barcoded traceability label that guarantees their provenance and ensures uniform quality and appearance.
The barcode allows to monitor slate quality from start to finish and provide precise information.
