At RABLE, we believe that witnessing the dynamic functionalities of our products firsthand is the best way to appreciate their value. That is why we encourage you to visit our production hall in Delft and experience the RABLE standard and RABLE XXL for yourself.
Our team is dedicated to providing you with a demonstration of how our products work and can assist you throughout the process. To set up an appointment, simply contact us through our email or sign up below.
In a recent RTL news broadcast about the Dutch climate goals and challenges, Erik Valks was interviewed about how RABLE ensures that expensive roof renovations are no longer necessary for buildings that are not directly suitable for solar installations. Weak roofs no longer have to be an obstacle!
”52% of Dutch roofs suddenly become suitable for solar panels thanks to the innovation of the startup RABLE. This is because normally flat roofs are only suitable for solar panels after a very expensive renovation. Energietransitiefonds Rotterdam (via InnovationQuarter) and Rubio Impact Ventures are investing € 2,5 million in the startup to set up production and enter the market with the system.”
“RABLE has developed a solution that makes it possible to install solar panels on weak roofs; a self-supporting system” writes AD.nl. They highlight our innovative mounting system, which can be installed directly on flat roofs without the need for structures on the roof. This means that more commercial and industrial properties can benefit from solar energy.”
Review by Bart, Business Manager at DLE.energy: ”For a customer of DLE.energy we were looking for a lightweight substructure. The self-supporting construction of Rable resulted in a weight of less than 15kg/m2 and with a fraction of the roof anchors. Nice innovation of Dutch origin which makes it possible to install panels on apparently unsuitable roofs. We hope to install many more!”
”Approximately 45% of non-residential construction in the Netherlands has a ‘mild’
constraint and 15% are ‘severely constrained’ and require multiple interventions.
On average an intervention to solve a ‘limitation’ costs EUR 15- 75 per m2, depending on the construction limitation.”
”More than half of utility roofs cannot support the weight of solar panels without structural modifications. RABLE developed a mounting system that is “self-supporting” and requires no ballast. With this solution, the startup helps utilize roof area that previously seemed unsuitable.”
”De onderconstructie van RABLE is een zelfdragende constructie, zodat het CBM-dak helemaal niet belast wordt en geen enkele ballast heeft. Zowel Solarge als RABLE zijn recent veel in het nieuws geweest en zorgen ervoor dat 50% van de moeilijk tot niet-ontwikkelbare platte daken in Nederland toch voorzien kunnen worden van zonnepanelen.”
”Over half of large company roofs cannot support the weight of solar panels. Delft start-up Rable has developed a self-supporting system that allows even weaker flat roofs to be fitted with solar panels.”
”Because large roofs are often not designed for the additional ballast of solar panels, RABLE has developed a self-supporting solar panel system for this purpose. In this way, weak spots on large roofs can be avoided.
On behalf of Reginox, our structural engineers played an advisory role for this project. ”
”Solar Magazine takes a quarterly look at solar-related Top Sector projects. This time the TKI project Radically Better Laying System for solar panels on weak flat roofs; RABLE.
In the project, RABLE demonstrates and validates a self-supporting mounting system that should turn the market on its head.”deert RABLE een zelfdragend montagesysteem dat de markt op zijn kop moet gaan zetten.”
A scaled-up version of the EW series was designed especially for Reginox. The RABLE XXL is twice the size of the standard version and can handle the weight of 8 solar panels per frame. The first phase of the solar panel installation project was completed in February: more than 200 solar panels were successfully installed on the roof of Reginox’s factory in Rijssen.
