In order to protect our National Security, military and government agencies require higher levels of security from their paper shredders. HSM's line of High Security Shredders are NSA approved for NSA/CSS Specification 02-01.

With the widespread use of network printers and fax machines, top secret, sensitive information is constantly being printed throughout the workday. It’s important to have a powerful shredder located nearby to easily dispose of this information. High security printed office data can be easily and efficiently managed with this paper shredder.

The HSM 225.2 L5 High Security NSA-Approved Shredder is built with a wide 11.8" feed opening to accommodate both letter, legal and wide-format paper sizes with ease. This cross-cut machine produces a very small 1/32" x 7/16" or 11mm x .78mm particle shred size to security level 5 standards. It offers a 7-9 sheet capacity.

This professional shredder is constructed on casters and features a cabinet with a swing-open door. The door hides the addition of a wire frame that slides out for the ready and easy change of plastic waste bags. These disposable shred bags can be quickly and safely replaced for a clean, hassle-free shred experience.

This model features a modern electronic controller, is fully automatic and comes with a visual indicator when the shred box is almost full. The shredder will automatically power off when capacity has been reached. Simply change out the waste bag, close the door, and the shredder will resume normal operation. It also offers safety features such as automatic shutoff when the cabinet door is opened and auto reverse to prevent an overfeed.

HSM 225.2 L5 High Security NSA-Approved Shredder employs a matched pair of solid steel cutting cylinders that are capable of reducing a single sheet of paper into 7,030 tiny particles. These particles are so small that they have been rendered impossible to reassemble.

This mobile, high performance model is ideal for use as a shared device in busy office environments. This professional data security model is the perfect central device for medium and large offices.
