Once again, a Rivera Primo first. After over a year of testing and design changes, we are finally ready to un-veal our latest state-of-the-badazz product. The TransparaGuard!
Over the past gazillion years, I have constantly been asked by customers from all walks of life (and almost living) to come up with a belt guard that covers the belt and moving stuff, but where they still can see that they have an open belt drive. As we all know, open belt drives are way cool, but can also be a bit dangerous to bell bottom jeans and long scarves. Well, the engineers at RPI (Rivera Primo) for many years have been pouring over technical manuals, going to plastics seminars (what fun), studying star charts and generally sitting in our conference room with a doobie and a bottle of torpedoe red trying to come up with such a thing as an invisible force field for an open belt drive. And guess what? We done did it! Well, not the forcefield thingy, but we created a polycarbonate, optically clear, UV resistant, shatter resistant outer guard for most open belt drives. YES WE DID! As you see below, our kind and thoughtful Office Manager modeling our newest creation, the TransparaGuard
The TransparaGuard does what we were asked for, it protects you fully from the moving parts, but allows everyone and thier grandmother to see that you indeed gotcha a Open Belt Drive. Its a beautiful thing, and whats more, you can paint, machine, engrave or just stare at the TransparaGuard anytime you like. This puppy will be available almost immediately for our Primo® Brute IV Extreme (2014-0078) and also for any manufacturers belt drive as a universal fit (2014-0149). Other applications will soon follow, as well as versions with built-in LED lighting..I mean DAMN THE TORPEDOES AND FULL SPEED AHEAD!!
