Hardwire's main goal for Sunfest was to supply added protection to the event and to educate Sunfesters about bulletproof consumer products that can be worked into everyday life. This year, Hardwire handed out and donated 2,000 face shields to event-goers to increase protection against Covid-19 at the 2021 OCMD Sunfest.
We are proud to work with Angel Flight, the Salisbury Airport and Bay Land Aviation to donate valuable PPE to those that need it the most. An extra big thanks to all of the pilots! Thank you all so much!
Hardwire, LLC was awarded its first delivery order for the Army’s next generation Modular Scalable Vest (MSV) program. The Army MSV program will replace heavy body armor systems with new lightweight armor and carriers. The contract is scheduled to run for the next nine years. The Army’s top priority for the MSV program is to "lighten the load” on its troops with a tailorable vest. Hardwire’s patented armor was the lightest evaluated for the program and one of the first chosen for production.
An Open Letter About the Nationals Stadium Shooting,
Hardwire has adapted its military armor to active shooter applications to give members of the public an opportunity to protect themselves. Our Hardwire Emergency Response Shield (ERS) is a tool anyone can use. Department of Homeland Security advises “Run, Hide, Fight” for active shooter situations, the same approach used by many at Nationals Stadium. Active shooter circumstances can be overwhelming, ERS allows citizens to “Run, Hide, Fight” with ballistic protection.
When reading about body armor specs, companies use labels like NIJ Compliant and NIJ Certified when referencing armor threat level and efficacy. We would like to clear up what these terms mean, explain the difference, and show you a list of our NIJ certified armor.
At Hardwire®LLC, we hold dear the Right to Bear Armor. To bear armor is to protect yourself, the framers were looking out for us, and we should continue in their footsteps and remember they did not know how society would progress, but they knew enough to say we all deserve protection.
Does body armor expire? In short, yes, all body armor does expire, but not all body armor is equal. Hardwire utilizes Dyneema. Dyneema is the only man-made fiber stronger than spider silk, coming in at 15X stronger than steel. It is naturally buoyant, waterproof, moisture-wicking, breathable, and will not delaminate due to moisture. Kevlar on the other hand will begin to disintegrate with element exposure and is only 5X stronger than steel.
A leading global provider of safety products designed for the public safety, military, professional and outdoor markets, announced today the next generation of Hardwire Ballistic Panels. Hardwire optimizes the strength of compressed Dyneema fibers to create the thinnest and lightest level II and level IIIA body armor.
