Limiting the human impact on the environment is an increasingly pressing concern and the construction industry is no stranger to this. Architectural design is rediscovering a new range of ecological solutions to overcome this issue, such as natural slate.
Traditionally used as a roofing material, natural slate is now emerging as a rainscreen cladding material. CUPA PIZARRAS has merged the two concepts creating CUPACLAD, a façade solution that reduces the building’s carbon footprint.
Slate is a natural material in which the production process does not require any chemical or other harmful substances. Each of the pieces is handcrafted and selected carefully to meet all the quality requirements. The result is an effective and easy-to-maintain façade.
CUPACLAD is available in four different systems, adapting to any type of architectural requirements. And there is a team of experts at your disposal to support you through every step of the process.
Natural slate rainscreen systems are a key element for buildings that want to achieve LEED certification, a globally recognized sustainability standard.
