about Hardy Fall Protection Systems, Inc.

Gary Hardy - Owner/President

As the creator of the very first prefabricated steel shear panel, that still bears his name to this day, Gary Hardy, President of Hardy Fall Protection is known for creating products that help save lives! It was with that same passion for safety that Hardy Fall Protection Systems was created.

Gary began his career as part of the Construction Battalion in the US Navy and served his country with honor and grit, alongside many other brave men and women. After the end of his active service to our country, Gary used the construction skills he acquired to find work in the building industry. He began working as a carpenter and eventually developed a reputation as a man committed to working hard and doing the right thing.

This reputation led to him being sought after by a local builder to be their in house carpenter and eventually afforded him the opportunity to venture out on his own and expand his framing business by offering it to builders throughout the region. As time went on, Gary saw a need in the building industry that no one seemed to understand how to fill.

After the Northridge quake, conventional site built shear-walls in wood framed buildings had become increasingly wide. Gary came up with a product that would resist greater capacities and allow for much larger openings with very narrow wall space. A truly revolutionary idea at the time. 

Today, Gary continues to serve the building industry by providing new and innovative ways to keep construction and maintenance crews safe. Gary instills in our entire team a “Can Do” attitude and commitment to customer satisfaction that is all too rare in today’s business climate.
