Keep It Confidential

Nov 10, 2022 11:17:37 AM / by Banner


It's a legal requirement for anyone operating a business which handles personal data to fully comply with the rule of the GDPR, and this extends to ensuring all employees are aware of the obligations to securely destroy personal documents to avoid data breach.

As more employees work remotely, businesses must still remain compliant with the GDPR. Employees accessing sensitive data at home may be at risk of breaking rules, especially where paper data is involved, and we wanted to highlight this this National Fraud Awareness Week.

A shredder is the essential tool for destroying confidential paperwork, and the machines offering high security micro-cut shredding capabilities are the most effective. With the surge in homeworking, there’s been an increase in demand of personal shredders that are specially designed for home and small office use.



  • Zero jamming
  • Extra safety features
  • Advanced security
  • Maximum productivity

As we see a continued change in working environments, product design has become ever more important. This means it has to look good as well as perform brilliantly – and that is front of mind within the Fellowes range. Their compact size and attractive lines provide aesthetic appeal that’s just perfect for today’s homes and offices. 


Maximum security when shredding a document is determined by the type of cut and the size of the particles each sheet is reduced to and the productivity level of the machine.


For example, the Fellowes Powershred LX200 Mini-Cut Shredder Black 5502301

offers unmatched productivity. The Intellibar responsive technology provides in-use feedback that maximises the shredder's performance. For extra security, it shreds each sheet of A4 paper into over 1,000 particles - currently £20 cashback offer.



The LX Series 201 shredders protect privacy by reducing an A4 sized sheet to over 2000 unreadable particles that are 6x smaller than standard cross-cut. The small, compact micro-cut particles fill the waste bin more efficiently than standard cross-cut pieces, resulting in the ability to hold up to 150% more shredded sheets for less frequent bin emptying.


These LX models include two of Fellowes’ propriety features. The first is Fellowes 100% Jam Proof System, which guarantees efficient shredding by eliminating frustrating paper jams and powering through tough jobs. The second one is the patented SafeSense Technology, which automatically stops the machine from shredding if hands (or paws) touch the paper opening, providing extra peace of mind when using around children or pets. 


On the LX Series shredders, Fellowes engineers have introduced the IntelliBar™ responsive technology. The IntelliBar allows end users to shred with maximum productivity and convenience through an easy-to-follow and automatic colour-coded light display on the machine.  


Personal users and home office workers can also enjoy the LX Series experience with the LX85, LX65 and LX45 - with a limited time £12 cashback offer on the LX65 model. These compact models are available in a smart black finish and can shred each A4 sheet into 300+ particles to ensure high security protection. Once again, user safety is of paramount importance; and, depending upon which model is chosen, the patented SafeSense Technology or a neat safety lock is included.


Meanwhile, the 550C and 225Ci provide perfect office solutions. Why not contact your account manager today to find out more about the range included - limited time only!
