At a customer’s request, we can shift from standard shred size shredding, which is faster and less expensive to produce, to high security shred size with just a flick of a switch.
SEATTLE (PRWEB) April 14, 2021
PROSHRED® Seattle is excited to announce the acquisition of a Shred-Tech MDX-2 Ultra High Security shredding truck. This newest addition to the fleet means that the shredding franchise will be able to provide high security shredding services to customers in addition to standard size shredding.
The new shred truck can produce a high security shred size of DIN 4, which is the smallest shred size that can be produced by a cross-cut shredder, and which is periodically requested by PROSHRED®’s defense department customers for the destruction of their more confidential documents.
A DIN 4 shred size means that a standard 8.5”x11” sheet of paper will be shredded into over 390 particles. By contrast, a standard strip-cut shredder such as those found in home and smaller office settings would shred a standard sheet of paper into 39 particles.
Natalie LaBerge, President and CEO of White Dog Shredding Company dba PROSHRED® Seattle, said the new truck will allow the company to service those divisions within the federal government requiring a very fine shred size.
“At a customer’s request, we can shift from standard shred size shredding, which is faster and less expensive to produce, to high security shred size with just a flick of a switch,” LaBerge said. “This means our customers can have just a portion of their shredding done at a high security level, and the rest of their shredding performed at the standard shred size level.”
The rest of the shred trucks in the PROSHRED® Seattle fleet are designed to shred at a level DIN 3, which generates shreds that are a nominal 5/8” by 1-2”.
“The thing that is most important to our customers seeking high security shred size shredding is that it is done right in front of them at their location,” LaBerge said. “The customers can watch the shredding taking place via a closed-circuit camera mounted above the shredders on our shred truck. Our customers are delighted that we can now provide this high security option available to them.”
