Want to know more about Shredders
Heavy-duty paper shredders help ensure your company defends itself against fraud, industrial espionage, and breaking federal confidentiality laws. A large variety of models are available with diverse levels of security and features that meet all your shredding needs. These machines help preserve the confidentiality of information and make recyclable waste easy to remove and transport.

Reduce Large Amounts of Paper at One Time

Purchasing a heavy-duty shredder for the office lets employees save time when destroying large amounts of paper and other items. One of the main things to look for when searching for a heavy-duty paper shredder is how many sheets it can deal with per pass. Standard paper shredders can generally cope with between 3 and 10 pages at once with a run time of 1 to 5 minutes. On the other hand, heavy-duty models in large offices with more than five users competently deal with 20 or more pages simultaneously, and they can run continuously for over 30 minutes before needing to stop to cool down for a similar period.

Heavy-Duty Shredder Bins and Feeders

The size of the bin contributes to the amount of time users have to spend during shredding tasks. The bigger the container, the less time it needs for emptying. Typically, a heavy-duty unit has a bin with a 30-gallon or more capacity. Bins are either pull-out drawers or removable buckets.

Automatic feeders are the best choice when staff has to cut up large amounts of paper every day. Feeder trays are very similar to those found on printers and copiers. Holding between 100 and 500 sheets at a time, the feeder simply pushes the paper into the device during the work process.

Shredding Items Besides Paper

A heavy-duty office shredder can chomp up more than just paper. Check manufacturer booklets for exact details when looking into specific models, but typically other items include:

  • Paper clips
  • Staples
  • DVDs
  • CDs
  • ID cards
  • Bank cards

Heavy-duty paper shredders for all office requirements

The three main types of heavy-duty office shredders include micro-cut, cross-cut, and strip-cut devices. Each type offers a different level of end-result security. DIN P ratings go from 1 to 7. The higher the DIN rating of the machine, the smaller the fragments are after shredding. If your company deals with confidential information daily, micro-cut shredders, which have a DIN P-5 rating, are the answer. These chew paper into minute, confetti-style pieces that are impossible to resurrect as whole documents. Companies that require DIN P-3 and P-4 security levels for sensitive data usually select cross-cut shredders. These slice sheets diagonally from the corners into short strips. Standard strip-cut models generally have a DIN P-1 and P-2 rating, and they cut pages into long bands.
