Nacka District Court dismissed GSAB court case against ROCA
In 2015 GSAB sued ROCA Industry for design infringement. They argued that ROCA´s glass hinge RG-490 was in conflict with the GSAB owned design registration 81606.
The district court dismissed the case in a judgment on May 18, 2016 and obliged GSAB to compensate ROCA with 588 400 SEK for costs. The judgment has not been appealed.
The ROCA hinge RG-490 is included in the glass door system “Decibel” which includes frame, lock cover and hinge in a consistent design line. The name “Decibel” refers to the system's excellent sound-deadening characteristics.
