Shredders can also contain additional features, which can bring up the cost quite substantially, such as ultra quiet, which would be perfect for use in a office which is shared by many. Another would be a large bin capacity, which would mean less emptying and therefore be less time consuming. Or even auto reverse which returns the paper the shredder cannot accept, this happens if the paper is too thick or too many sheets have been entered.

We also stock accessories for your office shredders including shredder oil. Shredder oil can prolong the shredders life as it will keep it free from dust particles, also improving the performance of the shredder. To use shredder oil, put some onto a piece of paper then let it feed through the shredder. Another way to oil your shredder is to use oil sheets, oil is already on paper here which will also save time. Shredder bags is another accessory, this makes it easier when coming to emptying the bin. This would prevent loose sheets of paper from coming out of the shredder bin.
