Looking for an office shredder to shred your business or organisation’s confidential documents? We know that companies of all sizes have data protection needs to ensure sensitive information is disposed of securely. So whatever your requirements, we have grouped together a range of shredders to help you find the right one and make sure you don’t fall victim to costly data theft.
Our range includes everything from small business models for those with lower volume requirements, all the way up to large shredding machines capable of handling hundreds of sheets at a time.
Buying an Office Shredder
There are several things to take into consideration when selecting a paper shredder for your office. Your organisation may have a high volume of paper that requires shredding, so selecting a model with a large sheet capacity could be important. Auto-feed is another helpful technology to consider; a feature available on some of the higher spec machines that means you can just load the paper and let it automatically shred, rather than having to hand feed it in sheet by sheet.
How confidential are the documents that you need to shred in your office? You can use the DIN security level to work out how securely material will be shredded; the higher the security level (P-1 to P-7 for paper) the smaller the shredded particles and hence the more secure it is considered to be. Strip-cut, cross-cut and micro-cut can also all offer different levels of shredder security.
Do you need to shred other material such as CDs, DVDs and credit cards? How about documents with paper clips and staples? If so, make sure you check our range for a model that can handle the relevant media.
Other less obvious features to consider would be how portable the shredder is. If it needs to be moved around the office frequently it may be a good idea to select one with coasters. Also, noise can be a big distraction, especially in an enclosed working environment. Therefore, quieter operation may be an important factor to consider.
