Dahle 20394 High Security High Capacity Shredder (NSA Evaluated)

Available on GSA Contract Number GS-02F-0112P for $5,585.00 Delivered

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 high capacity paper shredder.

The Dahle 20394 High Security Shredder is built with a wide 16 " feed opening to accommodate both letter, legal and wider paper formats with ease. This cross-cut machine produces a very small 1mm x 4.7mm particle shred size to security level 6 standards. It offers a 18 sheet capacity.

This professional shredder is constructed using a wooden cabinet with a swing-open door. The door hides the addition of a removable Shred Box that facilitates the ready and easy change of waste bags. This box can be easily lined with disposable shred bags, which can be quickly and safely removed and replaced for a clean, hassle-free shred experience.

This model 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.

Normal office functions will not be bothered by the use of your 20394 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.

Accessories - such as spare waste collection bags, shred boxes, or lubricating oil - for this unit are available on our Shredder Supplies page or by clicking below.
