Choosing a Shredder with Rexel

Back to articles

The shredder you choose depends very much on your personal needs. The following parameters need to be taken into consideration:


You have a choice between:

  • Ribbon cut (thin strips for a low level of security)
  • Confetti cut (small pieces for a high level of security)

Within the two types of shredders, you may have a choice of security level based on the width of strip or size of confetti cut. The smaller the cut, the higher the security. Note security level logos on Rexel shredders.


  • Bulk shredding. If you tend to store documents and shred them at once, you will need a shredder that can handle numerous sheets at one time
  • If you ‘shred as you go’, it may not be necessary for the shredder to handle lots of sheets in one pass


  • The larger the shredder bin, the more shredded paper it will be able to store meaning less emptying
  • Small confetti-cut pieces will use up the volume of the bin more than ribbon cut
  • So by choosing a confetti-cut shredder you will enjoy the added benefit of emptying the bin less.


Some shredders are designed for use at a certain location e.g. under the desk, next to the desk, on the desk etc.
