The new CUPACLAD® systems were created to fill the need to adapt natural slate to new architectural styles and trends, which call for more ecological and sustainable construction.

CUPACLAD slate cladding

CUPACLAD natural slate is specially selected from among our 20 quarries for its technical properties and is subjected to specific quality controls to guarantee exceptional performance in any facade.

CUPACLAD ensures quick and easy installation thanks to the greater regularity and flatness of the slates, which are delivered with the holes made to match the selected CUPACLAD® system. Even its packaging, which is smaller and lighter, has been designed to facilitate and shorten installation times.

A life cycle analysis, which allows you to analyse the overall environmental impact of a product, confirms CUPACLAD® as the ecological option for facade cladding, thanks to the use of natural slate instead of prefabricated products.

Environmentally friendly and sustainable

Natural slate is only subject to extraction and mechanical transformation; there are no chemical or heating processes involved as with alternative materials.

Efficient as a rainscreen cladding

Now considered the most efficient system for construction envelope purposes.

Complementary to external insulation systems

Reducing energy consumption and helping to keep the building cool in summer and temperate in winter.

The efficiency of a rainscreen cladding

Rainscreen cladding is a construction solution widely used and popular amongst Architects and developers worldwide.
Now considered the most efficient system for construction envelope purposes. The combination of a ventilated system together with an insulation system gives numerous advantages in terms of thermal and acoustic properties. It avoids thermal bridges and condensation issues.

Energy savings

Thermal efficiency is increased due to the cooling effect in summer and greater heat retention in winter.

Elimination of humidity

Rainwater penetration is greatly reduced and any moisture is removed through the constant ventilation, reducing the risk of any condensation.

Estructural movement reduction

The air cavity avoids temperature variations resulting in less pronounced structural movements. This reduces the risk of cracks and other structural issues.


The cladding material is kept dry due to continuous ventilation. Many issues related to humidity (efflorescence etc…) are reduced resulting in a longer life span of the installation.

Quality Certifications

Our comprehensive quality team selects the perfect slate for each system based on wind, bending and impact tests to guarantee performance on the facade. Our Exclusive Cladding Range is underwritten by the highest European quality standards.
