Bridges are one of our most vulnerable assets.
They are susceptible to damage or destruction from many threats, both accidental and intentional in nature.
In either case, the risks are very real, and they must be managed by Bridge Owners and Port Authorities to ensure the continued and safe operation of our bridges and ports.
Recent worldwide statistics indicate a trend of increasing attacks against public transportation assets, with highway infrastructure being among the most frequently targeted.

Why bridge owners & port authorities trust Hardwire:
A CUSTOM APPROACH.
We analyze the threats of interest to your project so we can appropriately identify the materials needed and design the system to integrate on to the final structure, whether it is new or existing. Throughout this design process, all of your requirements are considered, including the weight, size, protection level, environment, and vibration of the overall system.
In addition to 3D Modeling and Simulation, Hardwire is also an industry leader in testing (from fire to blast to ballistics to cutting) and validation, with comprehensive in-house capabilities. We have invested extensively in the tools and facilities required to validate our solutions and demonstrate that our systems meet or exceed all customer requirements.
Hardwire has been the go-to armor supplier on more than a dozen bridge hardening projects—because quality, delivery, and experience are paramount. We’ve worked hand-in-hand with government entities, bridge engineers, and contractors to develop, test, manufacture, and install turnkey solutions for fire, cutting, blast, fragmentation, and ballistic threats.
