Top-secret shredders are designed to shred the most sensitive documents.

The government doesn’t use just any shredder when it comes to shredding sensitive and top-secret documents. They use the highest-security shredders available on the market. The National Security Agency (NSA) has come up with a list of shredders that they consider to be appropriate for the shredding of top-secret documents.

These shredders are referred to as security level six shredders and shred paper down to 1mm x 4-5mm. The particles are almost as small as dust.

Although security level six shredders are nice to have, they are not necessary for everyone. Most ID thieves won’t bother looking at shredded material. They may piece together strip-cut documents, but will almost always avoid cross-cut documents. Thieves usually don’t want to put forth the effort to piece documents back together, and will usually move on to another location for something un-shredded.
