If it is just 'shred' rather than 'cross-shred' - i.e. in two directions - details can often still be read. There are great variations in the industry, with many companies not conforming to even the minimum European standards for confidential document shredding and destruction: some samples obtained by us still have the full name and address details legible.
At File Centre using our shredding services, we cross-shred your material to DIN level 3, which is less than 6mm wide and 50mm long, this is intended to break up any lines of type and offers you one of the highest levels of protection when shredding your paper documents. It is the recognised European standard for confidential documents. Also not only do we offer to send you samples of shredding, but you are also welcome to see your records shredded on site.
