Its zigzag shape evokes the movement of the waves of the sea, giving the facade a feeling of great dynamism and originality.

CUPACLAD Design WAVE uses a 40x25cm rhomboid, achieving an ideal design for horizontal buildings such as, convention palaces, museums, concert halls, etc.

Here, the fixation used is visible stainless flat headed screws, specifically 4 screws per slate, a system that does not require overlap between slate pieces.

WHAT IS CUPACLAD DESIGN?

CUPACLAD Design emerges as a challenge to avant-garde architects and tries to surprise them with endless possibilities of facade designs in natural slate.

The CUPA PIZARRAS R&D team is constantly creating new stunning finishes by combining different profiles, sizes and configurations.  Each is inspired by current architectural trends and designed to maximise the natural beauty of slate.

All CUPACLAD Design concepts are perfectly achievable by using a specially selected CUPA PIZARRAS tectonic and highly durable natural slates.
