Intelli-Zone’s New United ST-12C Paper Shredder Review

Tuesday, December 4th, 2012

If you need a paper shredder that can handle in excess of 10 sheets of paper at a time using a Level 3 cross cut pattern, the New United ST-12C from Intelli-Zone (found here) is a great choice. This Level 3 shredder is compact enough to be used next to a desk and is excellent for shredding old documents, records and other paperwork. Is the ST-12C a good option for your business? Here are a few reasons why you may want to consider it.

The Intelli-Zone New United paper shredder lineup features a wide range of great-looking machines that work as well as they look, which is great. The ST-12C features more of a traditional front cabinet style design, but with a modern twist. The ST-12C has a matte black with a reflective gray two-tone finish. Angles are soft and rounded and there are no hard or sharp angles. It is excellent if you need a shredder that fits in well with your existing office’s equipment and furniture.

The ST-12C has a 12 sheet cutting capacity (based on 20# bond paper) and it cuts documents into 3.9mm x 38mm particles.  This level of shredding security is far superior strip cut shredders. This cutting pattern is both FACTA and HIPAA compliant. As paper is shredded, it is deposited into a 5-gallon shred bin. Considering this shredder is only 22″ tall, that is a lot of bin capacity, which means fewer bag changes for you.

Safety and convenience are built into this shredder. This shredder will not operate if the bin is not securely in place and it includes a built in load protector. If too much strain is being put on the motor, the ST-12C will stop, reverse the motor and notify the operator that it is over capacity. This technology helps prolong the life of the motor and prevents damage to the motor, gears and shredder blades.

When it comes to noise, the New United ST-12C makes very little. This shredder only produces 60 decibels of noise, which is very comfortable in an office environment. Having used this shredder for myself, I can confirm that it is remarkably quiet for a cross cut shredder.

While most shredders can only handle paper, the ST-12C can also be used to destroy credit cards and optical discs such as CDs, Blu-rays and DVDs. The shredder blades are also hard enough that they can handle paper clips and staples without suffering any nicks, chips or other damage.

You will find this shredder at home or in the office. While it is a deskside shredder, it can be used by multiple people throughout the day. It looks great, is very affordable considering what it does and is a must-have shredder for offices, businesses, churches, homes and more.

This shredder features a very impressive two-year warranty with a five-year warranty on the shredder head. This is excellent; especially considering this is a deskside shredder. Feel free to call us at 1-800-658-8788 with any questions. You can find our entire lineup of paper shredders here.

Four Level 4 Micro Cut Paper Shredders You Have To See

Wednesday, July 11th, 2012

If your office or business is in need of a paper shredder that produces double the shredding security of most traditional Level 3 cross cut shredders, you may want to consider using one of these affordable Level 4 micro cut shredders (found here). These four new paper shredders are made by New United and not only feature excellent security, but also have a great design that looks modern and classy. Here are a few reasons why these shredders are for you.

All paper shredders are rated by a security level. This level is used to determine the level of security that they offer. Security levels range from 1 to 6, with 6 being the highest level of security offered (high security). Level 3 is typically called cross cut and Level 4 (while a type of cross cut) is often called a micro cut paper shredder. Consider this, a Level 3 paper shredder has a 3.9 mm x 30-50mm cutting pattern and a Level 4 produces a 2mm x 15mm cutting pattern. Because there is more surface area to cut, Level 4 shredders typically won’t cut as many sheets at a time as their Level 3 cousins.

New United paper shredders are known for their exceptional quality and stylish good looks. These shredders are affordable, have a great cutting capacity and even feature a blue light that lights up the shred bin while paper is being shredded. I have used several of these shredders myself and I am impressed with how much better they are than your typical department store shredder.

We currently offer four Level 4 micro cut paper shredders from New United. These include the ST-6M, the ST-8M, the ET-12M and the ET-15M. These shredders come in traditional shredder designs and more modern side bid designs. Here are a few things you should know about each one.
