Available on GSA Contract Number GS-02F-0112P For $2,747.25

In order to protect our National Security, military and government agencies require higher levels of security from their paper shredders. Dahle's line of High Security Shredders are NSA evaluated 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 Dahle 40534 High Security NSA-Evaluated Shredder is built with a 12" feed opening to accommodate both letter and legal size paper with ease. This cross-cut machine produces a very small 1mm x 4.7mm particle shred size to security level P7 (old level 6) standards. It offers a up to 12 sheet capacity.

Those interested in conserving energy as well as reducing electrical costs will enjoy the revolutionary SmartPower Energy Management System. This multi-stage system reduces power consumption after ten minutes of sitting idle (sleep mode), and completely powers down after an additional 20 minutes of inactivity.

It uses the latest technology to offer full electronic capabilities including such safety features as Automatic Shutoff when the cabinet door opens and Auto Reverse to prevent an overfeed. Automatic On/Off and Bag Full Auto Off are features that offer both convenience and satisfaction in knowing you will be notified when it's time to change the bag. Equipped with a built in EvenFlow Lubricator automatic oiling system. This system provides slow, continuous lubrication across the entire cutting mechanism and ensures peak shredder performance.

Normal office functions will not be bothered by the use of your 40534 High Security NSA-Evaluated Shredder. Each cutting cylinder is encased in an all-steel frame and sits on rubber shock mounts. This design reduces vibration throughout the cabinet and provides whisper quiet operation.

This shredder employs a matched pair of solid steel cutting cylinders that are capable of reducing a single sheet of paper into over 15,500 tiny particles. These particles are so small that they have been rendered impossible to reassemble.
