The OfficeAssist™ family of auto and manual feed shredders.

Help make any office more secure and productive.

Why shred?

One of the primary motivations for buying a shredder is data protection. Although laptops are the biggest source of exposure, data breaches can also occur from the careless disposal of printed paper containing confidential information. Worth noting is that privacy regulations relate to electronic data as well as paper-based data, so it is important that organizations handle personal data carefully to avoid fines and legal action due to non-compliance.

Shredders help you:

Select Usage Chevron Icon

Pick a shredder bin size based upon sheets stored in the bin rather than bin size alone. Note that the higher the security level means a smaller cut size and increased bin capacity. See our guide below for sheet capacity depending on the number of users: 

Select Security Level Chevron Icon

Security levels are referenced by protection rating (P-rating); this refers to the number of pieces a document is shredded into. The higher the P-rating, the more pieces a document is shredded into and the higher the level of security it provides.

Auto versus manual feed shredders:

Opting for an auto or manual feed shredder depends on a number of factors, including how quickly you want your shredding completed and whether you prefer to be more hands-on. Generally, higher sheet capacity shredders shred faster. Check the auto and manual shredder information below for help in making the right choice.

Auto feed shredders

Kensington's patented auto feed shredders allow users to load a stack of papers to be shredded, lock it until shredding is complete, and walk away. Depending on how much shredding you do, this can save hours of time and productivity versus manual shredding.

Manual feed shredders

While manual feed shredders require you to feed documents into them, they can still shred a high volume of sheets at once. Manual feed shredders also use the latest anti-jam technology and long run times to ensure seamless, uninterrupted shredding.
