Why would you choose an unsuitable standard-sized product when you can order a tube that fits your needs perfectly? With Stalafit service you can optimize your structural hollow sections by tailoring them exactly to the dimensions you need.

Stalafit logoThe outer dimensions of hollow sections can be tailored exactly according to your specific application. This way the optimal cross-section size can be produced with sufficient load-bearing capacity to meet the demands of the application.

This tailored service, offered only by Stalatube, is provided so that you can gain more advantages and savings compared to other suppliers.

Technical details

  • Stalafit service enables exact product optimization, covering almost the entire Stalatube hollow section product range, with reasonable minimum quantities.
  • Optimized products manufactured from different material grades (EN 1.4301/AISI 304, EN 1.4307/AISI 304L, EN 1.4404/AISI 316L, EN 1.4571/AISI 316TI, EN 1.4003, EN 1.4062, EN 1.4162, EN 1.4362, EN 1.4462)
  • By optimizing the outer dimensions of the hollow section exactly according to the application, you are able to gain savings in the structure’s weight and costs.

Tools to help you with stainless design

We have developed new tools under the Stalafit brand to help you visualise the possibilities of stainless steel even better.

Our previous optimisation tool, the Stalafit hollow section optimiser, has recently been replaced by a design application called Stalafit PRO, an advanced version for professional design. The material selection tool is still a part of the application, but otherwise its functionalities have been doubled. Stalafit PRO is used to design beam and column structures that consist of Stalatube’s RHS and I-beams. 

The starting point of the development process was to create a fully functional design application that produces ultimate limit state, serviceability limit state and fire design in accordance with Eurocodes. This will also help designers who are not as experienced with stainless steel to use the fire resistance characteristics of stainless steel. Many structural analysis programs do not either necessarily have the capability to design with stainless steel at all.

In order to optimise structures, designers can also use the world’s widest stainless RHS dimension range that in roll-formed hollow sections extends up to 300x300x12 and 400x200x12 produced by Stalatube. Individually manufactured hollow sections and I-beams can be delivered according to each customer’s specifications.
