Shred Ace is one of only several shredding companies in the country to operate shredding trucks capable of shredding down to a shred size smaller than the industry standard 5/8 of an inch, creating a smaller shred size and superior level of security for customers that require the smallest shred size possible in a mobile application.
Most shredding trucks on the market shred to 5/8 of an inch, the shred size required by NAID AAA Certification standards. In Washington, DC and the surrounding area, however, many government and Department of Defense facilities are requiring a smaller “high security” shred. Shred Ace invested in a high security shredding truck to meet these requirements.
Our high security shredder actually runs documents through two shredders, achieving the significantly smaller shred size. Because the process is so deliberate, the shredding takes a bit longer to complete. As a result, high security shredding is typically a bit more expensive than a standard on-site shredding service… it is important to keep that in mind when weighing which shred size is acceptable for your organization.
