Choosing The Right Shredder

Cut Type

Shredders with a smaller cut size help keep your information more secure. The smaller the cut size, the higher the security level.

  • Strip-Cut - Basic Security
  • Cross-Cut - Higher Security
  • Micro-Cut - Superior Security
  • High-Security - Ultimate Security


Shredder productivity goes beyond mere sheet capacity or speed. When shopping for a shredder, consider the machine’s throughput, or the efficiency in which it can get the job done. Throughput combines the three most critical features that contribute to a shredder’s performance:

Sheet Capacity x Speed (feet per minute) x Duty Cycle = Throughput.
