We have over 15 years experience in the document shredding and security shredding industry and our knowledge of how shredding consoles should be constructed both from a technical and practical point of view is unapparelled. For example we know that end users WILL place often heavy items on top of these units for long periods of time that is the most common failure of cheap imported cabinets is that the weight for the these items has to be transferred to the side of the cabinets and not the top or they will collapse. Also 18mm is the correct thickness of the wood for shredding consoles not 12mm or 15mm as is often the case with imported wooden shredding consoles.  Plus of course we support British industry as we manufacture in the UK not import from Far East
