OFFICER SAFETY: Hardwire Ballistic Armor by Havis Protects Officers from Bullets and Projectiles

Hardwire Ballistic Armor by Havis provides mission-critical ballistic armor for public safety vehicles. Hardwire ballistic panels are proven, high-performance vehicle armor. The armor offers NIJ Level IIIA armor protection, and tests confirm they stop .357 SIG and .44 Magnum ammunition fired from longer barrel handguns as well as shotgun fire. This enhanced armor provides additional protection to public safety officers while in the field or on the scene.
“Protecting law enforcement officers is core to our team, and this partnership with Havis provides more officers access to our ballistic vehicle armor,” said George Tunis, Hardwire’s CEO. “We are excited to reach more police departments to ensure that they know armor is available, functional, and affordable.”
“Exterior ballistic panels are already standard for both the New York and Philadelphia Police Departments,” said Dan Heiland, Product Manager for Material Handling and Versatile Solutions at Havis. “Our solutions support a range of vehicles already in the field, and they are simple to install, which means minimal downtime for police vehicles.”
Hardwire’s armor kits from Havis offer a complete external solution that includes an exterior door with handle protection as well as a window insert solution. The OEM car windows, including opening and closing, are fully functional while protecting officers’ heads and necks. The exterior ABS serves as a visible deterrent. The kits are light and durable, easy to install or remove, and transferable to like models. From vehicle-specific consoles to unique device mounts to K9 transport systems and more, Havis offers a dash-to-trunk line of purpose-built and innovative solutions that complete the purpose-built police vehicle.
The History Behind Hardwire Ballistic Armor by Havis
Havis and Hardwire began collaborating over two years ago after an industry partner made the introduction. Their first joint customer, Philadelphia Police Department, opted for Hardwire Ballistic Armor by Havis for all new vehicle purchases’ windows and doors. At that point, Havis became Hardwire’s official sales and distribution partner in the market.
Hardwire is a leading manufacturer of protective armor for two decades, producing armor systems trusted and used by the military, law enforcement, municipalities, private business, consumers, and school systems. Havis has an extensive history of serving the public safety market and can leverage Hardwire’s distribution network to reach end-users.
