"Shredders are machines that shred all the unwanted and useless Items/stuffs, as they are no longer required by the owner any more. It cuts the papers or any other objects in different angle and sizes so that anyone who may get hold of it may not be concerned with it in any ways. Shredders are really useful as it also minimizes the amount of large waste into small and tidy waste.

An office, company, industry or factory without shredders are said to be called less progressive as compared to others who do have this machine for their use. Many problems can arise if this machine isn’t available for their use. One of the problems is the increment in the size of waste produced can due to non-shredding of unwanted stuffs. The waste gets piled up and so requires more space to store. To clear the space, these wastes are inserted in the shredder and they are shredded to small bits and pieces. Secondly, the main issue is about the security. High Confidential files, papers, documents, etc are shredded so that it does not get in the hands of the cheaters. The main reason for the use of shredders is that it can provide you with a high proof security. This stuff is quite important as well as confidential as it consists of data or applications that needs to get secured from any unknown searcher. There are 6 types of security levels in shredders.

DIN 1 - It cuts the papers in 12mm strips. It is normally used by many companies to shred the less value documents after they have been used, but this shredding is still better than nothing.

DIN 2 – It cuts items in 6mm strips. This is used to dispose credit cards or ATM card so that it can’t be used again by anyone whatever is done to it.

DIN 3 – It is used to cut important documents of clients or customer with a 2mm strip blade. This is specially used for property documents, or any personal records, or any license or certificate, etc.

DIN 4 – It cuts documents in 2x15mm pieces so that it may secure more confidential stuffs like business documents, financial records, highly secured cards or certificates, etc.

DIN 5 - It has a 0.8x12mm blade that cuts the documents in bits and pieces, so that no one could ever fix it. This is used to wipe off any secret information of highly government offices, or any organization, or agency, etc.

DIN 6 – This type of security level cuts the documents in 0.8x4mm that is so small that only alphabets can be seen after the outcome. This is usually needed when getting rid of cases or files in highly confidential government offices and president house, etc.

Shredding any stuff isn’t much important but the fact is, to secure a data or a document is more important than anything else in this world of deceivers. These deceivers can really make you pay if they get hold of any of the privacy or confidential stuffs."
