Things to Consider When Choosing a Shredder

  • The number of sheets you need to shred on a daily bases
  • The confidentiality of your data
  • The types of media to be destroyed (Paper, Cd's, Credit Cards)
  • The number of people who will be using the shredders
  • The money budgeted for the shredder

  • Reduces shredded bulk

Another thing to consider

The Feed Opening is the part of the paper shredder where the paper enters. The width varies and increases as model numbers increase which ranges from 8 inches to 18 inches. There are several reasons why this is important. You must choose the shredder width based on the size of the documents you will be shredding. (The standard paper size 8 1/2 x 11, easily fits in any standard shredder.)

If you plan to shred continuous form documents wider than 12 inches, it is best to focus on our Production Shredders that offer a 16" feed opening which will allow you to shred continuously without constant watch. (Office Shredders offers feed openings ranging from 9.25" to15".) Continuous forms will constantly jam if you have a smaller feed opening. The output is measured in pounds per hour and is an indication of the speed and power of the shredder. You need to know what kind of power you want to work with. Many times purchasing a bigger more powerful shredder pays off depending on your volume. If you are doing very little shredding the low models will be sufficient.
