Rainscreen systems have become one of the most efficient solutions for exterior cladding. It provides numerous advantages in terms of thermal and acoustic insulation, avoiding thermal bridges and condensation problems.
The CUPACLAD® natural slate rainscreen system consists of a load bearing wall, a layer of insulation, an included metal extrusion system, and the natural slate material covering. This system creates an air cavity between the insulation and the slate.
