The name change is part of an overall initiative to further strengthen and focus on the Rite-Hite brand. The announcement follows the streamlining of the product line that the machine guarding division undertook earlier this year. In similar fashion, Frommelt Products (a subsidiary of Rite-Hite) changed its name to Rite-Hite Environmental Enclosures earlier this year.
The name change will not affect the current product portfolio. As its name implies, Rite-Hite Machine Guarding will continue to focus production on its industry-leading machine guarding products, including automated barrier doors, industrial fencing and retractable curtains for robotic and automated welding processes in metal manufacturing, automotive, material handling, paper/packaging, and plastics among other industries. Brand names for these products include Defender, Flashfold, Vertiguard, SlideAir, Rollshield, Rollshield Side-To-Side, X-Ten, and Roboguard Fence.
“This name change clarifies who we are, what we offer, and emphasizes Rite-Hite’s commitment to improving industrial safety through quality and innovation,” states Rite-Hite Machine Guarding national sales and marketing manager Eric Esson. “We want our customers to know that the machine guarding products are and always have been a part of the Rite-Hite family of innovative, high-quality products.”
