PS391 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 from identity theft by ensuring all of your bills, letters - anything with your personal details on - gets 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 PS391 shredder will cut them into tiny 9x3mm pieces, making it near impossible for someone to reconstruct.
Sitting perfectly on your desk or counter, this little shredder is a convenient way to dispose of all of those annoying receipts, envelopes and letters that often collect up waiting for you to dispose of them safely. By positioning the PS391 somewhere that is close at hand, you can shred as and when you need to, rather than letting piles of paper build up. As it's small and portable, you can also store it away when you're not using it.
The Duronic PS391 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 6 pages of A6 paper. Using the internal rotating blades, it cross cuts paper into tiny 9x3mm pieces, ensuring that even the smartest thief cannot read your personal documents. The run time/cool down time for this shredder is 2 minutes/30 minutes.
If you need a shredder with even greater shredding capacity see our other models PS410 and PS991 which can shred up to 9 and 18 sheets at a time respectively.
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.
Cross Cuts into 3x9mm 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 PS391 shredder this isn’t a worry as it will efficiently cut through paper into micro 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.
