Two of CUPA PIZARRAS’ slate cladding systems are now BBA certified.

The British Board of Agrément is a UK body that issues certification for construction products and systems when they comply with building regulations.

It has certified the natural slate supplier’s CUPACLAD® 101 and 201 systems, after they were assessed for factors including strength and stability, fire resistance, air and water penetration and durability.

The certificate verifies that, in normal UK exposure conditions, the systems will have a service life of more than 35 years.

Director of Marketing Julian Gomez said: “With the BBA certification for CUPACLAD® 101 and 201, specifiers can also be assured of the systems’ long-term performance.”
