PS285 Desktop Paper Shredder
Identity theft is a major concern, both online and offline, with an ever-growing number of UK consumers becoming a victim of identity fraud at some time in their lives. If a thief obtains your personal details they can open bank accounts, take out credit cards, apply for loans, apply for state benefits, order online, make in-store purchases, take out mobile phone contracts and even apply for identity documents such as a passport or drivers licence in your name.
Don’t allow this to happen. Take action now and protect yourself and your loved ones from identity theft by ensuring all of your bills, letters - anything with your personal details on - get them shredded properly before being thrown away.
Ripping paper up isn’t good enough as it is easy for a thief to put the pieces back together again, but shredding the documents with the PS285 shredder will cut them into tiny 12x4mm pieces.
The Duronic PS285 is ideal if you have moderate amounts of paper to shred; if you have a small/medium office or home office, this is the machine for you. It’s the perfect mini size to use as a desktop shredder, enabling you to shred whilst continuing to work at your desk. It can shred 3 A4 pages (folded vertically) or 5 pages of A5 paper. Using the internal rotating blades, it micro-cuts paper into tiny 12x4mm pieces, ensuring that even the smartest thief cannot read your personal documents. The run time/cool down time for this shredder is 2 minutes/45 minutes.
If you need a shredder with even greater shredding capacity see our other model PS991 which can shred up to 18 sheets at a time.
Things to Consider When Choosing a Shredder
It is important that you get the right shredder to suit your needs. There are several important factors that you should consider before purchasing one:
Do you need it for home, a small office or a larger office?
How high security do you need it? Choose from cross-cut for general shredding or micro-cut slicing up sensitive documents.
How often will you be using it? Do you want or need a larger bin to hold more and not need to empty as often?
How much paper do you want to be able to shred in one go?
Where do you want to place it? On a table? Under it? On the floor standing proud in the middle of an office, or in a tight cover in a small space.
Micro-Cuts into 12x4mm Pieces
In line with the recent implementation of the EU General Data Protection Regulation (GDPR), businesses and anywhere that holds sensitive data are under greater scrutiny when it comes to disposing of personal data.
With the PS285 shredder this isn’t a worry as it will efficiently cut through the paper into small pieces, ensuring that if your disposed documents get into the wrong hands, they will never be able to be put back together again by the thief.
