Launching a long-serving, trusted company into the future.

After more than 38 years, Hydra-Shield, a long-time leader in the hydrant security industry, has introduced its new branding.

Since 1979, Hydra-Shield has manufactured and distributed the highest quality hydrant locks, devices, accessories and valves to communities across the nation. Many municipal water departments choose Hydra-Shield as a main source of security solutions, and rely on their products to help save revenue and protect against unauthorized water usage.

As the marketplace has evolved, so has this trusted company. Over the years, Hydra-Shield has extended into new markets and expanded their product line. In order to continue to move into the future, and remain relevant to customers in an ever-changing business world, Hydra-Shield has refreshed its entire brand, logo and website to reflect the level of innovation they’ve been providing to the industry for years.

The Hydra-Shield logo took center stage as the transformation began. The new logo design now delivers instant recognition and a clear message to customers. The company name, which the hydrant security industry has come to know and trust, is now front and center. It’s accompanied by an iconic, protective shield that guards a single droplet of water. Even as a standalone graphic, the new logo distinctly represents Hydra-Shield’s steadfast mission: to protect one of the world’s most precious resources.

The new Hydra-Shield website features enhanced navigation, plus an ultra-sleek design. It showcases dramatic photography that powerfully illustrates the advanced products the company continues to provide to the marketplace. Clear, concise copy tells the story of Hydra-Shield’s unique services and solutions, and how they help customers save time and money every day. This competitive advantage is what sets Hydra-Shield apart from the competition, and keeps them ahead in today’s modern business world.

After decades of service, Hydra-Shield states that while its brand has evolved, its values remain the same. Hydra-Shield is proud to deliver only the best products, services and solutions to long-standing customers and new prospects. This new visual identity has transformed a long-trusted company into a contemporary brand that will continue to serve the hydrant security industry for years to come.

City’s Hydrants Getting a New Lock

Vandals bent on opening fire hydrants will have an increasingly tougher time as the city steps up installation of a new generation of locking devices, according to Chicago Water Management Department officials.

Under a $3.65 million contract awarded recently to a Texas firm, as many as 10,000 so-called Custodian nut-locking systems will go on hydrants during the next five years, joining 12,000 already in service.

Placement of the devices will be determined by analyzing 311 calls of unauthorized hydrant openings, officials said.

The new model represents the eighth generation of locking devices as designers seek to stay a step ahead of people who try to misuse hydrants, said Tom LaPorte, a Water Management Department spokesman.

“You never are going to have a completely tamperproof lock, but this has been very effective in discouraging open hydrants,” he said. “In the old days, you might have seen 3,000 or 4,000 being opened on a given day during a bad heat wave. Now we are down into the low hundreds.”
