The Ralos shoe can be used up to a roof pitch of 22 degrees.

With its patented suction elements, the underside of the Ralos shoe adheres securely to the very sensitive, sloping and even wet solar modules. The binding can be set to a fixed inclination, and it is also suitable for walking down a gradient. In contrast to skis, the technician can wear his or her own boots to step into the binding. The Ralos shoe can be used up to a roof pitch of 22 degrees. Certification with the German Employer's Liability Insurance Association is currently pending.

To complement the Ralos shoe, the company presented Ralos.Step, a specially developed solar ladder that can be used very effectively even on an array with an inclination of up to 60 degrees. The solar ladder was specifically developed for module arrays and allows rolling across the modules, all while carrying out service work effortlessly and safely without damaging them. (mfo)
