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.
