Frommelt Safety Products, a Milwaukee, Wis.-based division of Rite-Hite Doors, will change its name to Rite-Hite Machine Guarding, effective Sept. 1. The name change is part of an overall initiative to further strengthen and focus on the Rite-Hite brand. 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 machine guarding products, including automated barrier doors, industrial fencing and retractable curtains for material handling, paper/packaging and plastics, among other industries.

“This name change clarifies who we are, what we offer and emphasizes Rite-Hite’s commitment to improving industrial safety through quality and innovation,” says Eric Esson, national sales and marketing manager for Rite-Hite Machine Guarding. “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.”
