And with a durability of over 100 years, if you are looking for a long-term roof or facade with no maintenance, our natural slate from CUPA Pizarras is the ideal choice.

One in every three installations worldwide bears the CUPA stamp. Their 16 quarries provide the most complete range on the market. Whatever shape or size colour or texture, you ll find the perfect CUPA slate in the BRM range. Unlike other brands, CUPA control product quality from source and have a unique barcoded traceability system providing assurance of their environmental management policies and peace of mind over the quality.

This almost black slate is produced in the Armadilla quarry in Benuza (Le³n) Spain. It was chosen for the renown and very beautiful Havenhuis port house roof in Antwerp by Zaza Hadid. Importantly for the UK the R4 Excellence has been approved for use in the Snowdonia National Park.

Once the process of crafting the slate in the quarry is complete, each piece is assessed along different technical and aesthetic guidelines in order to be classified into the following two selections for you to choose from:

H Selection
Having the same strength and durability as the R Excellence the H is a high-quality natural roof slate which permits slight variations in thickness and flatness.
These slates often are chosen by experienced installers who are able to work the slate on the roof and guarantee a homogeneous result.

Please note: As this is a natural product it is possible that there will be a shade variation
