Although cross cut shredders have a lower throughput than strip cut shredders, HSM cross cut shredders are available with higher security levels. A cross cut shred is safer for more sensitive materials and will adhere to certain security requirements that strip cut cannot reach. Cross cut shredding also reduces paper waste volume because particles are smaller. HSM personal cross cut shredders are compact and convenient. They fit comfortably in small offices under or next to your desk while safely shredding data.
