How to Choose a Shredder

Cut Type

The cross-cut method of this shredder keeps documents safer from identity theft than regular strip cutting. The Cross-Cut type or smaller are best for confidential documents and prevent you from emptying the bin as often. 

Productivity

To choose the right shredder, you want to look at the throughput, or its efficiency while shredding. Throughput combines the sheet capacity, the duty cycle and the speed. 

Model Sheet Capacity x Speed x Duty Cycle* = Throughput
Shredder A 12 x 8.2 FPM x 3 minutes = 295
Shredder B 15 x 7 FPM x 10 minutes =

1,050
