Cupaclad 101 Random is designed for use in any architectural project and, once installed, functions as a ventilated facade system – a type of construction that sees the outer layer of a facade physically separated from the inner wall for energy efficiency.
The system is available with natural slate in three different sizes – 50 by 25 centimetres, 50 by 20 centimetres and finally 50 by 15 centimetres – which can be randomly arranged across the facade.
The slabs are fitted horizontally in overlapping positions using concealed self-drilling steel fixings. These fixtures help to retain focus on the slate, and are also designed to reduce installation times.
"Cupaclad 101 Random is an innovative rainscreen cladding system that combines the high quality and natural beauty of slate with the efficiency of ventilated facades," explained Cupa Pizarras.
"It provides a wide range of possibilities, suiting any individual design and adapting to any surface."
