Characterised by its contemporary design, the CUPACLAD® 201 VANGUARD rainscreen cladding system marries large format slates with stainless steel clips, creating a clean, modern combination.


The CUPACLAD® 201 VANGUARD system is part of the CUPACLAD® 201 series, which includes systems with visible fixings. Associating natural slate with steel gives the facade a unique touch of modernity.

The CUPACLAD® 201 VANGUARD rainscreen cladding system stands out due to its stainless steel clips, which are slightly visible at the bottom, contrasting with our natural slate. The result is sustainable cladding with a modern touch.

Patented System

CUPACLAD® 201 Vanguard is a patented system developed by our R&D department that is designed to meet the highest technical requirements of the construction industry.

Ease of installation

Our metal rails feature small holes in them to mark the exact position where the clips should be placed. This avoids the necessity of drawing vertical guidelines and individual fixings for the clips.

Perfect Result

The stainless steel clips have flanges that work just like a spring absorbing differences in the thickness of the slates resulting in a perfect leveled cladding surface.

VANGUARD offers a very modern design thanks to the use of visible fixing. Slate units are fixed with clips that are slightly visible at the bottom, offering a clean, stylish appearance.

Fixing System – 201 Vanguard

The fixings used in the CUPACLAD® 201 series are stainless steel clips designed by our team of engineers, specifically adapted to each system. We have at your disposal different models: stainless steel and steel lacquered multicolour.

Each slate is fixed to the structure by two clips that remain slightly visible once the system is installed. The clips are an evolution from the traditional hooks, eliminating possible vibrations and giving the system greater resistance.
