Stala sinks, worktops and mailboxes are available as GDL objects. By using our user friendly GDL object library you can create designs for all needs using both our tailor made and standard products. The GDL objects are compatible with ArchiCad and you can open them using ArchiCad16 or a newer version.
In January 2019 we published all sinks as Revit objects. You can download the object library from below or from the ProdLib service, which is free of use for designers. The objects are compatible with version 2015 and newer.
CE marking on a product is a manufacturer's assurance that the product complies with the concerning requirements of the EU directive and that the product has passed all possible and needed inspections. All Stala products have a CE marking. The requirements for sink products are stated in standard EN 13310:2015, by which the products have been tested and approved. Meeting the requirements is shown with DoP, the Declaration of Performance, which can be found on each product card under the Installation and usage instructions tab.
Nordic Swan Ecolabel is not issued to single sink products but it is possible to get a certificate for a whole building given that certain requirements are met. Stala’s sink products fulfill the requirements to be used in buildings with the Swan label. The constructor or designer can ask Stala for the necessary attachments for the certification.
SundaHus and Byggvarubedömningen are certificates used in Sweden to encourage ecological products and increase the manufacturer’s responsibility for the environment.
Technical Data Sheet (TDS) shows all the measurements of each sink product in detail. The same file also shows the needed measurements of the cutout for insetting. These pdf files are found under each product card under the Installation and usage instructions tab.
Installation and care instructions and cutout measurements for worktop manufacturers and installers are also found under the same tab.
All files are free to download without signing in.
Stainless steel is an ecological and long-lasting choice for the kitchen. We use Outokumpu´s recycled steel which has a recycle percentage of 85. At the end of its life cycle a stainless steel sink or worktop is still not waste, as it can be recycled and used again. Choosing a long-lasting product is also environmentally friendly!
We manufacture tailormade stainless steel worktops with a short delivery time. Made-to-measure is our standard – also pricewise. A worktop made by the customer´s measurements saves time and money with installation, as the fit is correct and the tap holes are already in place. The customer and installer are both happy!
Stainless steel is a hygienic material, it doesn’t absorb dirt and it is easy to keep clean. Stainless steel fits different types of needs in places where hygiene and easy care are important design criteria.
The kitchen, utility room, garage or cleaning closet. They all need a solution which is water safe – and stainless steel worktops are just that. Whether the space is small or large, we will manufacture the worktop just as needed.
Stala and its products have always been based on design, functionality and quality. Since 1972 our operations have been guided by the thought of creating top designs in everything we do. Design is not only the planning of a product but also aiming to make the whole life cycle of products as practical, efficient and high-class as possible. This is how we create products that are long-lasting and bring joy whenever used. A sink or worktop represents everyday design at its best.
