Choosing the HSM shredder for your business
Any organization dealing with sensitive data will need to effectively dispose of it. The range of HSM paper shredders are designed for this, offering thorough shredding of information with price ranges to suit all budgets. Prices start under $100 for the HSM Shredstar range, delivering Level 2/P-2 security. These strip-cut shredders make it difficult to reconstruct sensitive data and can help to protect private information.
If your business processes classified and top-secret information, you’ll require Level 6/P-7 shredding. The HSM high-security shredders deliver the level of security you need, making them ideal for processing highly sensitive national security documents and similar. These shredders work to thoroughly destroy the paper, and while this means that they can process fewer pieces of paper at a time, it does provide you with a more effective and secure shred.
Not all information is stored on paper. In this digital age, many businesses save data on optical media such as CDs and DVDs. This can make destroying the information challenging. The HSM NSA-listed CD and DVD destroyers are approved for processing both paper and optical media, keeping your data safe and secure.

Where are HSM shredders made?
The HSM reputation is very indicative of its country of manufacture, as it has become renowned for its German engineering. All of the HSM Securio shredders come with a three-year warranty so that you know you are in safe hands.
What should I do if my HSM shredder jams?
If your HSM shredder jams, you should try pressing the ‘R’ button to reverse the paper. This is often the best and most effective way to clear the jam. If this does not work, then you should follow the below steps.
- Turn off the printer and unplug it from the power source.
- Remove the top section of the shredder.
- Use tweezers or a similar instrument to carefully remove the jammed paper.
- Lubricate the blades with shredder oil.
- Reconnect the printer to the power and reverse the direction.
- Test that the jam is clear by feeding through a single sheet of paper.
How long will a HSM shredder last?
With proper care and maintenance, a high-quality shredder should last over 10 years. If you opt for an industrial shredding machine, this will likely last longer with regular servicing.
How often should you lubricate your HSM shredder?
How often you lubricate your HSM shredder will depend on how much it is used. For occasional use, you may only need to lubricate it every few months. If your shredder is used more than this, experts recommend lubricating it every time that you empty the waste.
How much are HSM shredders?
HSM shredders combine German engineering with innovation, and the range covers all budgets. You can buy a HSM paper shredder for as little as $100, with industrial machines reaching up to $40,000. No matter your budget, you’ll find the machine for you.
