Innovation at Rite-Hite

Rite-Hite is a family owned company founded in 1965 and from the very start, our goal has been to constantly improve the value we provide customers, whether through products, product enhancements, services, or more efficient methods of doing business.


Breakthrough products such as Dok-Lok® vehicle restraints, Safe-T-Lip® dock levelers, and Dok-Guardian™ safety barriers have truly changed the face of loading docks over the last 30+ years, and are helping protect the lives of millions of people worldwide. The Eclipse™ loading dock shelter, introduced in 2014, is the ultimate shelter for providing total environmental control at the loading dock. In 2015, Dok-Lok vehicle restraint with the Shadow Hook (model SHR-5000) was brought to market and has addressed increased intermodal traffic world-wide and provides a solid solution to organizations that need to ensure safety and security at their loading docks. In 2018, Rite-Hite introduced the Safe-T-Signal®, an innovative warning system that takes warehouse intersection communication to a new level. 


Each and every one of the innovative solutions that Rite-Hite provides began by recognizing customer needs and listening to customer concerns. Through all the creative and hard-working employees at Rite-Hite offices around the world, many new products and product enhancements are brought to the market each year. Innovation is woven into the fabric of our organization and we take pride in the work we do, the products we manufacture, and the service we provide for our customers, every day.


With a major focus on innovation, Rite-Hite has always taken steps to protect our intellectual property. Products and product enhancements are covered by multiple patents in the USA and around the world. Rite-Hite employees and the company have over 900 patents in an active or pending stage.
