Important questions when choosing a shredder

Before choosing a paper shredder, there are a few questions you need to ask yourself.

• What things need to be destroyed?

• Paper sizes?

• Number of single-feed sheets? And for one day?

• What level of information security is required?

• How many employees will use the shredder?

• Shredder location?

• What budget do you have?

Factors and opportunities to consider

• How many sheets can enter the shredder at one time without paper jams.

• Hardened steel blades provide a long cutting life and are much more resistant to damage.

• Automatic stop, which stops the shredder when a paper jam occurs at its entrance.

• Indication of filling the container or bag for shredded paper.

• Industrial shredder models can destroy even the metal brackets of the binders.
