RB-Group – Revolution, Evolution and Growth
RB-Group – Revolution, Evolution and Growth
The Pladelet™, the First Multi-Bolt Steel Security Door
Back in 1972, a woman living in Tel Aviv asked her neighborhood locksmith to install 4 more locks on her door following a burglary in her home. The locksmith, Avraham Bahari, intuitively knew that separate locks running up and down the length of the door was not the solution to gain a true sense of security.
Together with his friend and colleague Moshe Dolev, they invented a multi-bolt lock. Their multi-bolt lock was first installed in a wooden door.
In 1977, the multi-bolt lock was adapted and installed in a steel-core door, and with this, the original Pladelet™ became the pioneer of a new and revolutionary market of residential steel security doors, & a new era in the world of lock and security solutions began.
Revolution to Evolution
The firm belief in the product, steel security doors, led to continual development and improvement both in technology and design of the doors. A well-executed advertising campaign quickly turned the RB Multi-Bolt Steel Door (locally called the Rav-Bariach Pladelet) into a popular brand in Israel and abroad.
RB’s impressive success did not go unnoticed by leading international corporations and in year 2000, RB’s Lock Division was acquired for 65M $ by Swedish conglomerate, Assa Abloy.
New Ownership and Rebranding for the Company
Shmuel Donnerstein , entrepreneur, industrialist and recognized businessman, and winner of the 2014 Industry Award in Israel, brought new life to the company with the help of a professional and focused management team.
The company quickly and clearly redefined their core values and company vision, invested considerable resources in research and development, introduced new product lines and rebranded.
The results were not long in coming: The RB- Group became a domestic leader in the security and locking products market and the largest security door manufacturer in the world with a production capacity of 250,000 doors a year!
Development and Growth
In 2011, RB’s new Lock Product Division was established, and the Company reinstated local R&D and Production departments. One of the Division’s most recognized original products is the LOCXIS™ cylinder, the most resistant lock cylinder against drilling and burglary, with its distinctive blue key head. The LOCXIS™ cylinder, a source of pride for Israel in countries around the world, is an integral part of RB’s Entrance Doors.
The company has developed hundreds of lock products since then and owns dozens of registered patents. In 2021, under the leadership of Omer Yatir, the RB-Lock Division became a subsidiary of the brand.
