Paper shredding video

This video shows one of our industrial shredding machines destroying paper at Security Level 3 (in accordance with the European standard for paper shredding security).  The final waste paper is shredded to sizes measuring approximately 4mm x 40mm.

The paper is cross-cut which provides an extra layer of security when compared with conventional strip-cut shredders.  A cross-cut shredder not only shreds the paper into widths but it also cuts it into smaller lengths thereby making it almost impossible to retrieve any data.

The purpose of filming the shredding in this way is to demonstrate the power and finality of the paper destruction process.  It is possible to observe the operation of the two cross-cut shredding drums and obtain an understanding of how they decimate material that is fed through them.
