The easy to operate HSM Securio B24 shredder offers an integrated light barrier that automatically starts and stops the shredder. As a level 4/P-5 shredder, the Securio B24 accepts fewer sheets per pass than its level 3/P-4 and P-2 counterparts. Users may continuously feed between 11-13 sheets at a time into the 9.5" throat opening. Despite its low sheet capacity, this HSM model produces small 1/16" x 9/16" pieces, a total of 2,116 micro-cut particles per page. This level 4/P-5 shredders is perfect for those who want a smaller shred size, but still posses the ability to destroy staples and paperclips. On top of paper, staples, and paper clips, the Securio B24 even tackles credit cards or store cards. This is due to the 100% solid steel cutting cylinder, which guarantees a long service life. The waste container, which holds up to 9 gallons, is easy to remove and features an inspection window for monitoring shred level. The features of this unit are as impressive as the capabilities. The multifunctional operation button enables intuitive use of the machine. Icons will illuminate when the bin is full, bin is ajar, or when there is a paper jam. Paper jams are easily dealt with thanks to the JamStop Anti-Jam technology, which switches the unit into reverse mode when a jam is detected and will continue to run in reverse until the problem is remedied. The Energy Management Control System reduces power consumption by up to 90% when this unit is in stand-by mode. The closed gear mechanism, partnered with the Whisper Shred technology, ensures quiet operation. The comprehensive safety system and safety folding element promise user safety. This folding element prevents unintentional intake and the shredder will automatically shut off should pressure be applied. The HSM Securio B24 offers dimensions of 15.5" D x 12.5" x 23.8" H and weighs in at 45 lbs. Though still lightweight enough to carry form place to place with little effort, sturdy casters offer greater mobility.
