Our standard assemblies can be used in residential construction, including and especially in safe rooms and secure rooms.
Yes and no. Stala assemblies, being constructed of fourteen-gage, galvanized steel, will cost more than a wood or vinyl alternative bucking method. But the number of construction tasks required from wood or vinyl mitigates the upfront cost difference, as does the fact that Stala frames coordinate with multiple sub-trades and permit a quicker construction pace.
The tighter thermal seal that Stala enables also contributes to higher energy efficiency, as proven in third-party analyses, and thus lower life-cycle costs.
“The integration of ICF and Stala Frames worked to our favor by saving time during construction as well as ensuring the accuracy and trueness of the door and window frame installations. Our installers found that field measurement was simplified because of the consistency of the frame openings.”
