Frommelt Machine Guarding / Rite Hite Machine Guarding Logo

Member Since 2001


Frommelt Safety Products has changed its name to Rite-Hite Machine Guarding, effective September 1, 2014. 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. The name change does 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.
