Natural slate has, for centuries, been used as a durable and long-lasting roofing material. Recently, slate siding has emerged as a modern architectural trend in Europe, and the concept is beginning to make its way over to the United States.
CUPACLAD is an innovative rainscreen system that utilizes the beauty and class of natural slate to provide a wide range of modern siding options.

One of the more environmentally friendly products on the market, natural slate is already a popular tool for the sustainable passive home trend. The CUPACLAD system helps cut back on energy bills, saving not only on harmful CO2 emissions but also some cash.
Slate siding is certainly turning heads. The sleek, timeless material has been refitted as a siding material that can be constructed in a number of different tile shapes, sizes, and orientation.
With an expected lifespan of over 100 years, natural slate is an incredibly long-lasting material. On top of that, it is versatile in a number of climates; natural slate is very resistant against hail, hurricane force winds and fire.

CUPACLAD gave us a surface that was complementary with our modern aesthetics. The surface looks different every time… wet and dry. We have this glistening façade one moment and then a buttery smooth matte exterior, the next. CUPACLAD’s sleek, timeless slate material is certainly turning heads.
The slate contributed to the overall aesthetic with its modern metallic luster and yet modest-compliment to the historic 1913 Calvary building that sits adjacent to the BSA Leadership Center
We wanted it to be something like a sundial, so the changes in weather and the movement of the sun can be expressed across the building. The natural slate cladding, with tiny stainless-steel clips catching the light at certain angles, was the perfect solution to express the time of day with shadows.
