Shred Station’s New Ultra-High Security On-Site Granulation Service

Shred Station proudly announces the launch of a new ultra-high security shredding service, exclusively available to Shred Station customers.

Our new ultra-high security service uses a process called granulation to destroy confidential documents beyond the point of reassembly. But what is granulation, and how does this differ from other shredding services?

Granulation is a destruction process where documents and other materials can be destroyed into much smaller fragments. Granulation is the ideal destruction solution for highly confidential information such as top-secret government documents and documents regarding national security. With our ultra-high security shredding service, we will attend your site with our bespoke on-site granulation vehicle which can destroy material down to 2mm.

For an idea of how granulation compares to our regular shredding service size, please see the image below.

The key security features of our granulator vehicle are listed below:

  • Fully monitored by a four-camera CCTV system
  • A built-in, state-of-the-art GPS tracking and telematics system
  • Bespoke onboard granulator shredding documents down to 2mm
  • Ability to degauss magnetic materials onboard
  • Onboard hard drive shredder
  • Lockable cage doors in shredding compartment
  • Double-lined body for penetration security
  • Small chassis giving the vehicle lowest clearance of any on-site shredding truck, meaning secure areas and loading bays are more accessible
  • It is the only vehicle of its kind in the UK!

There are also several additional service features that we can offer as part of our ultra-high security shredding service:

  • Operating staff available vetted to Security-Check and Counter-Terrorism Check standards
  • Complies with all BS EN 15713 shredding standards
  • Waste Transfer Note and Certificate of Destruction supplied immediately after shredding has taken place
  • Due to being an on-site vehicle, a member of your team can witness the shredding take place for ultimate assurance

This brand-new shredding service is the first and only service of its kind in the UK, demonstrating our commitment to innovate within the data destruction industry, as well as meet our clients’ needs.
