The Kobra 240 HS high security shredder is suited for low to medium volume destruction of classified documents. It easily cuts microfilm/fiche into high security 1/32" x 7/16" particles. Its continuous-duty motor and heavy-duty chain drive with steel gears produce shred waste that meets Level 5 of DIN 32757 DIN standards for high security shredding. The specially designed cutting mechanism compresses the shredded paper and increases the capacity of the waste bin. Its automatic start/stop via a photocell sensor allows for one-handed feeding of documents into the shredder. When the door is opened or bin is full, the 240 HS automatically stops and a visual indicator light alerts the operator. It comes equipped with a conveniently removable 8-gallon waste bin. No plastic waste bags required.
