With the Dahle 51472 office paper shredder, you can securely and conveniently destroy documents and some media with level P-5 (O-5 for media) security protection. It features a 12" wide feed for all of the standard office paper sizes, along with trident grip jam protection to evenly pull in paper to prevent jamming. A 16 sheet capacity paired with Dahle's durable German-engineered cutting cylinders are powerful enough for most mid-sized, and even larger offices. The P-5 security turns paper into micro cross-cut particles measuring just 1/13" wide and 9/16" long. This means that a letter size paper will be deconstructed to around 2,100 pieces, making it near impossible to reconstruct, even with sophisticated equipment. This security level surpasses the HIPAA standards for medical data destruction, and is used in non top-secret government offices under DIN protection class 2/3.
Built-into the Dahle 51427 is their innovative CleanTEC air filtration system that protects your air quality, eliminating up to 98% of the fine paper dust naturally created from shredding. This can protect your employees from a common nose, eye, and throat irritant than can exacerbate existing conditions. There is also a handy 12oz automatic oiler that distributes an even coat of oil across the entire cylinder, ensuring not only that the shredder is always running at its peak performance, but that the noise level is also kept down, and the internal components protected. Eliminating this common shredder maintenance task takes a load off your workers from trying to remember when they last oiled, and how often it should be done.
Dahle is world-renowned as one of the top-quality shredder manufacturers in the world. They are trusted and believe in their products, which is why it is no wonder why they offer a limited lifetime warranty on their cutting cylinders, combined with a 2 year warranty on the shredder itself.

   • Automatic EvenFlow Lubricator - A 12oz automatic oiler provides a slow and continuous oil placement across the cutting cylinders. This ensures the cylinders are always properly lubricated, which maintains peak performance at all times, and help reduce noise.

   • CleanTEC Specialized Air Filtration - Unique to Dahle shredders alone, the CleanTEC system is an enclosed filtration system that collects up to 98% fine dust particles. Without this system, those particles would otherwise be released into the air. This makes for a healthier, safer, and cleaner working environment.

   • HIPAA Regulation Approved - Although HIPPA does not specifically identify a security level requirement when it comes to data destruction of medical information, the HHS does express that documents must be "rendered essentially unreadable" so that they "cannot be reconstructed." For many facilities, the minimum security level to meet these standards is a P-4. As this shredder offers a more secure P-5 level of security, it exceeds those standards.

   • Trident Jam Protection - A specially manufactured "trident grip" design maintains three continuous points of contact to ensure a perfectly fed sheet, offering jam protection from mis-aligned pages.

   • SmartPower Energy Management - The Dahle 51472 automatically powers down after 30 minutes of inactivity, conserving energy and reducing electric costs.

Shred capacity ratings are based on 20# bond copy paper and may vary depending on paper stock.
