CUPA PIZARRAS’ CUPACLAD recognised with BBA Certification

  • 8 Aug 2018

CUPA PIZARRAS’ CUPACLAD® 101 and 201 slate cladding systems have had their quality recognised having been officially BBA Certified.

CUPACLAD® is rainscreen cladding made from highly durable tectonic slate, offering a sustainable, lightweight and easy-to-install solution for external masonry, concrete, timber and steel frame walls. 

101 series CUPACLAD® uses a totally invisible fixing system and is available in three designs, while 201 series has a visible fixing system. 

Testing for certification involved both systems being independently assessed on strength and stability, behaviour in relation to fire, air and water penetration and durability. The certificate verifies that in normal UK exposure conditions, the systems will have a service life in excess of 35 years.

“CUPACLAD® opens up a world of options for designing with natural slate. It is a competitive, totally sustainable alternative for cladding any type of façade and can be adapted to any architectural design,” Julian Gomez, Director of Marketing at CUPA PIZARRAS explains. “With the BBA certification for CUPACLAD® 101 and 201, specifiers can also be assured of the systems’ long-term performance too,” Julian adds.
