The Kobra 240 HS is a high security cross-cut shredder ideal for "Top Secret"
and other classified documents. Many military bodies and international governments
approve it and is also used by the US Department of States, CIA and the National
Security Agency. The Kobra 240 HS has a special cutting system that can shred an A4
sheet in almost 10,000 granules, each measuring 1/32" x 7/16 inches, making it
impossible for electronic microscopes to decipher any information. It shreds 8 sheets
simultaneously with a maximum speed of 17 ft./min. Furthermore, the Kobra 240 HS is
equipped with a 9.5-gallon pull-out waste basket eradicating the use of plastic bags.
The Kobra 240 HS high security shredder features a 24-hour continuous duty
motor and a heavy-duty chain drive with steel gears that result in continuous operation
without overheating. An automatic start/stop function through various sensors enables
the unit to start operation when it senses material on its feed opening and stop when
the shredding is complete. In addition, the 240 HS also stops automatically when the
waste bin is removed. The Kobra 240 HS high security shredder is an Energy Smart unit
and is designed with optical illuminated indicators for power saving stand-by mode.
