What Do You Know About the Fellowes Paper Shredder Line?
Fellowes is a company that began in 1917 by Harry Fellowes. He didn't even start out selling shredders. Bankers boxes were his first offered products. Beginning in Illinois, this well-known company now operates globally. They reach out as far as Singapore, Germany, the United Kingdom, Australia, Poland, to name a few.
What Are The Security Ratings For Paper Shredders?
Since paper shredders are the main defense against identity theft, a way to measure their effectiveness was determined. Strip cutting shredders have produced waste that could be reassembled by motivated thieves and investigators. Security is of utmost importance in protecting waste from thieve so security ratings have been devised to measure the effectiveness of shredder security. Let's look at these ratings as they will be helpful in having a secure paper shredding program for any home or business user.
What Should I Know About Shredder Parts?
Most home use paper shredders won't have extra parts beyond the lubricating oil and the waste bags, if yours even comes with the waste bin. The lubricating oil can be found in any office supply store and costs about $9 per 16 oz bottle. The waste bags can be found at $34 for 100 bags. Fellowes offer waste bags specifically for their brands of shredders, from the personal models to the large 39 gallon models. They also sell the lubricating oil. Many shredders will use the same type of oil and work just as well. If your personal home shredder does come with a waste bin or basket of some sort, be aware that some of the plastic do tend to crack and break easily upon removal. Take extra care with your equipment for it to last.
