Key Features

Auto Feed

Auto feed shredders allow you to spend less time shredding. Simply load the automatic feed with paper and leave it to do the shredding for you.

Sheet Capacity

The sheet capacity of a shredder indicates how many sheets can be shredded at one time. The larger the sheet capacity, the more pages you can shred at a time. Selecting a shredder with a large sheet capacity will save you time.

Bin Capacity

Bin capacity indicates the capacity of the shredder waste bin. Choose a shredder with a larger bin size if you shred a large volume of paper.

Run Time

Run time denotes the maximum time which the shredder can be in continuous use (on time) and the cooling off period (off time). Some shredders have continuous shredding, where the shredder can be in continuous use without a cooling off period.

Cut Types

Cut type directly relates to the level of security required. For non-sensitive information, strip cut shredders will suffice. Cross cut shredders are best for shredding personal information, while micro cut shredders are ideal for shredding confidential information.

Features

While all shredders will take care of paper, you may want to shred other things such as staples, paper clips, credit cards and CD/DVDs.
