Brentwood offers a wide range of hook and strip shredders for secure document destruction.  Hook style shredders can be supplied with 20mm, 31mm, or 47mm triple hook cutters.  These are a special design cutter for the high loads seen in paper shredding.  Output size is the same as the width of the cutter and 50-75mm long.

The output from this type of shredder is suitable for baling

These units are also suitable for installation in packaging plants to shred trim prior to a chopper fan or cyclone.  Our AZ15 and AZ50HD are specially modified for this application.

We also supply Cushionpack units which turn old/used cardboard cartons into useful, soft packaging material designed to replace bubblewrap and other void fill materials.

Brentwood also offers a range of security strip shredders as either a stand-alone solution including an infeed conveyor and guarding or as a stand-alone unit to enable integration into the existing plant.  These shredders are designed to strip the material to various widths from 12mm up to 20mm with a rough serrated edge, which is acceptable under most security conditions.

They are extremely efficient and perform at a considerably increased rate per hour compared to shredders fitted with feed hoppers. By using a duplicated shredder system, cross-cut shredding can be achieved.
