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 reemerging as a rainscreen cladding material. CUPA PIZARRAS, the world leader in the field, has merged the two concepts to create CUPACLAD, a facade solution that reduces the building’s carbon footprint.
Slate is a natural material whose production does not require any chemical or other harmful substances. Each piece is handcrafted and selected carefully to meet all the quality requirements.
The result is an effective and easy-to-maintain facade. Natural slate does not fade under any condition. It maintains its color and performance for decades, providing comfort and peace of mind.
CUPACLAD is available in four different systems, adapting to any type of architectural requirements. Furthermore, there is a whole team of experts at your disposal to support clients 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.
