Stalatube launches digital tools for construction
12 February 2018
Stalatube, a provider of stainless steel solutions and a manufacturer of stainless structural hollow sections and profiles, aims to make designing with stainless steel as easy as possible. The company has noticed that stainless steel and its design are sometimes considered a challenge in the construction industry partly due to the lack of user-friendly and comprehensive tools, but this does not need to be the case. To answer the needs of designers, Stalatube has launched a set of digital design tools on its website. Some are already published and are soon complemented by the launch of Stalafit PRO: a fully functional Eurocode design software for direct member design or to be used with FEM results.
“Stalafit PRO helps solve all ultimate limit states, deflections and fire resistance,” says Kenneth Söderberg, Business Development Director. “We see this tool as a way of making design work easier, resulting in improved use of stainless steel in the construction industry. The material has various excellent qualities for the construction of public spaces and infra – fire resistance, ductility and corrosion resistance, to name a few.”
Stalafit PRO, enabling also the optimization of structures to improve cost-efficiency and sustainability, is available on the company website www.stalatube.com, and as an app in App Store and Google Play. The tool also gives users easy access to Stalatube’s wide range of products in fully customizable dimensions.
