Shredders serve various purposes, primarily aimed at safeguarding personal information and reducing waste for recycling, such as for animal bedding or packaging.

In today's environment, where identity theft is increasingly prevalent, it's essential to destroy personal or sensitive information before disposal. Shredders come in different types, including personal shredders that sit atop a bin and standalone shredding units.

Understanding Office Shredders

Office shredders typically feature sensors that detect inserted sheets. Once a sheet is inserted, roller blades pull and shred the paper, expelling it into the bin on the other side.

1. Strip-Cut Shredders: These affordable options shred paper into strips. While thinner strips pose challenges for reassembly, they are ideal for disposing of junk mail or general office use.

2. Cross-Cut Shredders: Increasingly popular due to their enhanced security, these shred paper into smaller particles, reducing waste volume. They feature two sets of blades operating in different directions.

3. Micro-Cut Shredders: Designed for extremely sensitive information, these shred paper into tiny particles, making reassembly virtually impossible.

Tips for Selecting an Office Shredder

1. Consider your security needs. Opt for cross-cut shredders for highly sensitive information and strip-cut shredders for less sensitive data.

2. Assess your capacity requirements. Choose a shredder capable of handling your volume to avoid inefficiencies and premature wear.

Understanding Office Shredder Security Levels

DIN - Deutsche Industrial Norm

Level 1 = 12 mm (DIN 1) - Ideal for home users, shredding into long strips.

Level 2 = 6 mm (DIN 2) - Improved security level for home users with moderately sensitive information.

Level 3 = 2 mm (DIN 3) - Recommended for important documents like bank statements, utility bills, etc.

Level 4 = 2 x 15 mm (DIN 4) - Suitable for confidential documents posing identity or commercial risks.

Level 5 = 0.8 x 12 (DIN 5) - For highly confidential documentation used in government and military institutions.

Level 6 = 0.8 x 4 (DIN 6) - Designed to shred paper into millions of untraceable pieces.

Maintenance for Your Office Shredder

Tips for Extending Shredder Lifespan:

1. Follow the manufacturer's instructions.
2. Avoid overfeeding or overuse.
3. Regularly lubricate cutting blades with shredder oil.

 Edel Horan   
about Fellowes AutoMax 300C Shredder Cross Cut Ref 4651601
  "This shredder was bought for the accounting office in our company. They have so much paperwork to go through and file and some of it is just a waste of space and needs to be shredded. This Fellowes shredder was a perfect for because of the features and the dimensions were ideal for the space that was available in the office."  
 Frank Hughes   
about Rexel Auto Plus 100M Shredder Micro Cut 2104100
   Would highly recommend it!   
  "I found this shredder absolutely brilliant. It works efficiently and requires very little maintenance, even when I load several sheets on it works away itself with no fuss whatsoever. It hasn't jammed once in the several weeks I've been using it! I also love the micro cut feature that ensures my personal documents are well shredded whereas I've found other shredders without this feature leave some sheets slightly legible. Would highly recommend it!"  
about Fellowes Universal Shredder Oil 350ml Bottle
   Very good price.   
  "A must have have if you use a shredder - doesn't matter if it's small home one or large office shredder. I damaged a shredder once as it was not lubricated often enough and the cutting heads were dry as a Sahara dessert. I wouldn't advise using veg oil but a proper shredder oil like this one from fellowes. Shredder oil isn't as sticky as regular oil so it doesn't attract paper particles what might sometimes cause malfunctions. Very good price for that product ."

  "Good quality shredder oil. We use it on our 2 Fellowes shredders and it seems to do the job very well."  
 Chris Healy   
about Fellowes Universal Shredder Oil 350ml Bottle
 Working like a dream.  
  "I have a fellowes shredder the cutting blades started to slow down, I was ordering a new shredder and a friend mentioned I should use the shredder oil. I used my bottle of shredder oil last week and my shredder is working like a dream again. I don't understand why shredders don't come with a bottle of shredder oil in the first place, I probably should have read the manual, I didn't know anything about using shredder oil."  
 Paudie Magner   
about Fellowes Universal Shredder Oil 350ml Bottle
 Good quality.   
  "This fellowes shredder oil is a must if you want to extend the life of your paper shredder. We have lots of shredders scattered around the office and the ones that are regularly treated with fellowes shredder oil not only perform better but also have far less paper jams and require less servicing. Good quality. "  
 Roy Mc   
about Fellowes Universal Shredder Oil 350ml Bottle
 Would highly recommend it.   
  "This is more like a universal shredder oil used it for both my cross cut shredder and confetti cur shredder and did the job for both of them. I suppose the fact that it's made by Fellowes only reassures about the quality of this shredder oil. Would highly recommend it. "  
about Fellowes Universal Shredder Oil 350ml Bottle
  I would recommend!   
  "We have a fellowes shredder and until recently we did not know that you needed shredder oil for it. It was not cutting great, so we took out the instruction manual to see if it had to be fixed. And there it was, fellowes shredder oil. We went online and checked out the huntoffice website. And there it was agian. So, we ordered a bottle of it. Its like a new shredder. I would recommend that anyone who has a fellowes shredder, order this fellowes shredder oil and give your shredder an good dose of it."

about Fellowes Universal Shredder Oil 350ml Bottle
 Very cheap   
  "We have a fellowes shredder and we buy this fellowes shredder oil to keep it in top condition. It is very cheap and best of all it is made for our fellowes shredder. This fellowes shredder oil comes in a 350ml squeeze bottle and it also has a nozzle tip for accurate application of the oil. I would not use any other oil on the shredder only this fellowes shredder oil."

about Fellowes Shredder Bags 23-28 Litre Pack 100
