More about this product

Characterized by its contemporary design, the CUPACLAD® 201 VANGUARD rainscreen cladding system marries large-format slates with stainless steel clips, creating a clean, modern combination.


CUPACLAD® 201 VANGUARD is a patented Cupa Pizarras product. It is a complete rainscreen cladding system made up of 60x30 cm slates installed horizontally using visible fixing systems.

The fixings used in the CUPACLAD® 201 series are stainless steel clips designed by Cupa Pizarras team of engineers, specifically adapted to each system. Each slate is fixed to the structure by two clips that remain slightly visible once the system is installed. The clips are an evolution from the traditional hooks, eliminating possible vibrations and giving the system greater resistance.

Slate size 60x30 cm - 24” x 12”
Nominal thickness 7,5 mm- 1/4” - 3/8”
Slates per ft2 0,64
Weight per ft2 (slate ≤25 kg/m² ≤ 4,10 lb/ft2

Main Advantages

  • Elimination of Humidity
  • Structural movement reduction
  • Energy savings
  • Durability


CUPACLAD® systems enable the construction of efficient, sustainable rainscreen cladding. A life cycle analysis, which allows you to analyze 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.


CUPACLAD® reinvents the traditional technique for placing natural slate, offering greater simplicity and significant savings in installation times. The fixing systems used in CUPACLAD® systems are the result of a meticulous design process performed by our engineers and these were specially designed to ensure a quick, secure installation.


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.


The quality of Cupa Pizarras product lies in their total control of the entire production process (from extraction to shipment) and by putting in place the highest quality and environmental policy requirements demanded by ISO 9001 Quality and ISO 14001 Environmental certifications.
