FAQ about STAS multirail systems


Which lighting fixtures do I need?
This is mostly a matter of taste. There are 3 types of STAS lighting fixtures available.  The ‘sirius’ lighting fixture has a length of 40 and 50 cm. The ‘signo’ frame is curved and has a length of 70 cm. The ‘classic’ fixture is available in chrome and white, in lengths of 50 and 70 cm.
We advise you to use a lighting fixture with a length of 70 cm for walls that are 2.70 m or higher. 
Take a closer look at the fixtures.

Which lamps do I need?
Each lamp fits every fixture. Your choice depends on the type (LED or halogen) and what color light you want.   The main advantages of LED lighting are a longer lifespan, less power consumption and no infrared radiation. Halogen provides higher light intensity and a warmer color.

LED
VL 10400 STAS multirail powerled 1.5W. Color: cool warm white. Lifetime: 20.000 – 50.000 hours. This lamp provides a broadly diffused light pattern. The output is equivalent to a 10W regular bulb.
VL 10700 STAS multirail powerled 4W. Color: warm white. Lifetime: 20.000 hours. The output is equivalent to a 20W regular bulb.

Halogen
VL 10305 STAS multirail halogen 20W Alutech Frosted. Color: warm white. Lifetime: 3000 hours.
Because the lamp is frosted, it creates a diffuse light. The inside is silvered, so there’s no reradiation of the light.
VL 10304 STAS mulitrail halogen 20W Alutech. Color: warm white. Lifetime: 3000 hours.
VL 10600 STAS multirail halogen 20W Philips. Color: cool warm white. Lifetime: 4000 hours.



Which adapter do I need?
The choice of adapter depends on whether you want to use LED or halogen lamps, the number of lamps and the length of the railsystem.

LED
STAS multirail adapter 18W,  max 16 meter rail, 1.5 W: max 10 LED lamps, 4W: max. 3 LED lamps
STAS multirail adapter 60W, max 16 meter rail, 1.5 W: max 30 LED lamps, 4W: max. 12 LED lamps
STAS multirail adapter 96W, max 16 meter rail, 1.5 W: max 40 LED lamps, 4W: max. 20 LED lamps

Halogen
STAS multirail adapter 60W, max 8 meter rail, max 3 lamps
STAS multirail adapter 96W, max 8 meter rail, max 4 lamps

If you want to use more meters/lamps you will need multiple adapters.
Note: you need to use independent circuits, ie, the rails may not be linked!
Make sure you never connect the rails with more than one adapter at a time!



Which hooks and cords do I need?
There are several possible combinations. Your choice depends on the desired look and the weight of your painting or wall decoration. The perlon cord is virtually invisible. The steel cable, also available in white or black, is suitable for hanging heavy wall decorations.
