There are two different ways to destroy your digital media, depending on the size.

Three things we really like about the FlashEx shredder are three features that no other media shredder on the market currently have. The first thing we like about it is the uniqueness of the machine. The FlashEx is the only machine on the market that gives the user the ability to shred their mobile devices on site without the need to transport to a specific shredding area, while removing the medias from your possession. Another thing we really like about the FlashEx is the ability to use it in any standard power supply in any room. This shredder only requires a standard single phase power supply, so it can be used in any office room that you need it, and can be relocated to another site without worry. The third thing we really like about this machine is the amount of space it takes up. With dimensions (in inches) of 22.8 L x 24 W and 39 H, the FlashEx is flexible in terms of where you can position it in your office. With no other comparable machine on the market, the only machine that is sure to fulfill your media destroying needs is the Intimus FlashEx shredder.
