"Non-Existent or Inadequately Guarded Machines" is one of OSH''s top 10 citations. That's why we developed a tough, tested line of commercial and industrial machine guarding products, to protect people from potential hazards near operating machinery and robots.
By creating a physical barrier, or by completely enclosing the hazard, our machine guarding products can minimize physical dangers such as weld flash, flying debris and moving machinery parts. In addition, we offer different types of machine guards that reduce extreme noise levels and extract deadly fumes from the air.
But it's not enough to simply provide a physical barrier. Our machine guarding products are engineered to provide easy access and to withstand industrial-strength use while still offering full-time protection. All undergo an in-depth five-phase engineering process to guarantee their quality, durability and safety, prior to being introduced to the marketplace. Plus, Rite-Hite Machine Guarding products comply with ANSI/RIA R15.06-1999 Robot Safety Standards and the Canadian Standards Association (CSA) Z434-03 Industrial Robots and Robot Systems General Safety Requirements.
