Rite-Hite Machine Guarding Side-To-Side industrial safety curtains are manual retractable curtains ideal in situations where restricted access is required.

The Side-To-Side rolls onto a constant pressure roller tube when not extended for clean, unobstructed access to the machine. When extended, the Side-To-Side becomes an effective screen from process driven hazards such as wed flash, sparks, light flying debris and other potential hazards. The Side-To-Side also serves as a visual deterrent to entry into restricted space.
