Who are we?
We are a startup company that from 2014 have developed a good concept into a market-ready product. The company, RASS International BV) was founded in 2014 by Sukhjinder Singh and Robert Alt.
The product was co-conceived by Robert Alt, who carried out many tests in collaboration with the technical university in Delft. The Tubebarrier has been extensively tested for failure mechanisms, both in scale and in actual size. There has also been close collaboration with, among others, Rotterdam high school.
We were able to test the Tubebarrier on a full scale up to 100 cm high. The test site is called Floodproof Holland and is located on the TU Delft site. The organization that made this site possible is called VP Delta and has opened many doors for us. VP Delta is a kind of accelerator that helps young companies with the startup problems. We have carried out many practical tests in this area, such as measuring leakage, water level testing, impact testing, simulating flashflood, wave action, etc.
