4 reasons to install CUPACLAD®, our rainscreen cladding system

slate clading system

A ventilated cladding system is considered to be the most effective solution for thermal insulation: it generates constant air ventilation through the rear of the panel and prevents accumulation of moisture. It is made up of a load-bearing wall, an insulating layer and a coating material fixed to the building, creating an air chamber.

CUPACLAD® is our rainscreen cladding solution in natural slate that combines the quality of CUPA PIZARRAS products and new architectural possibilities.

CUPACLAD® not only allows you to improve the energy efficiency of your home but also to get a contemporary natural style.


1. Natural beauty

Slate is a completely natural and beautiful material that gives any building a stylish and contemporary design.

In order to get that exclusive and quality look, all CUPACLAD® slates are selected one by one for their remarkable texture and handcrafted to be used for cladding. The result is a stunning unique design with a truly outstanding product.

2. High durability with no maintenance

A criterion of greater importance when choosing a cladding material is performance. Slate is naturally resistant and long-lasting, involving practically no maintenance costs at all.

Besides this high durability of natural slate, CUPA PIZARRAS products exceed all international quality standards.

3. Energy efficiency

CUPACLAD® is the perfect solution for external wall insulation both for renovation and for new projects. The outer layer of CUPA PIZARRAS slate acts as a natural barrier, ensuring total protection against weather and moisture. In addition, the combination of external wall insulation and a ventilated cavity generates significant energy savings while increasing thermal comfort.
