Securio P36 Cross-Cut Shredder is designed for continuous office use. Solid steel, cutting cylinders cut paper into 3/16" x 1-3/16" pieces for high-security needs at 20' per minute. Security Level 3 shredder shreds 31 sheets in a single pass and shreds CDs, DVDs and floppy disks. Two solid steel, cutting cylinders are subject to practically no wear and no sharpening and are made with a laser-cut and special heat-treating process for a more precise cut. Patented, V-TEK cutting-groove technology creates higher cutting capacity with lower power requirements. WhisperShred Technology reduces decibel levels so you experience a low noise level (55 decibels) whether running idle or shredding paper. Totally enclosed gear box helps reduce noise and prevents failure from dust and debris getting into the gears. Energy-saving feature of the TAA-compliant shredder reduces energy usage up to 90 percent with HSM technology. Shredder offers a 38-gallon waste bin.
