PS581 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 - 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 PS581 shredder will cut them into small 39x4mm pieces.
The Duronic PS581 is ideal if you have high amounts of paper to shred; if you have a medium/large office or home office, this is the machine for you. It’s durable, strong and able to plough through piles of papers to get the job done.
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:
· Purpose: Do you need it for home, a small office or a larger office?
· Security: How high security do you need it? Choose from cross-cut for general shredding or micro-cut slicing up sensitive documents.
· Usage: 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?
· Capability: How much paper do you want to be able to shred in one go?
· Location: 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 39x4mm 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 PS581 shredder this isn’t a worry as it will efficiently cut through 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.

Large 22 Litre Bin
The larger 22-litre bin on the PS581 can be used daily without having to be emptied after each use.
As well as giving the shredder a contemporary look, the silver-coloured see-through mesh front panel allows you to see when it is getting full.
