A global specialist in protective security, surveillance, intelligence, cyber security, due diligence, training and dog handling, has further strengthened its portfolio of services in collaboration with Boroughbridge-based UNTHA UK.
The business has bolstered the capabilities of its secure destruction division with the investment in a confidential waste shredder, certified to DIN-66399 standards.
The four shaft RS30 shredder with in-feed and discharge conveyor will handle a range of materials including hard drives, sensitive documentation, uniforms, and seized products which cannot get onto the black market.
Capable of processing up to 1.5 tonnes of these materials per hour, the robust machine can produce a range of outputs from 10mm–100mm so that classified materials are completely destroyed. The cutting chamber also pre-shreds and re-shreds in a single pass, with a ‘mixing’ action for added peace of mind.
However, the low speed nature of Lighthouse Security’s new solution, means the materials can be shredded without damaging their fibres, which protects output quality and increases reuse or recycling potential. The zero-waste-to-landfill process therefore upholds high environmental standards, as well as compliance.
Plastic arisings are sent for recycling into plant pots and other products, for example, and textiles are shredded for reuse in the equestrian, surfacing and energy recovery markets.
Lighthouse Security’s founding director Tim Jensen said: “Core to our security services, is a promise to safeguard our clients’ duty of care and accountability, in an increasingly high-risk world.
“Because we are an end-to-end security specialist, we can collect clients’ ‘items’, unload them into our secure CCTV manned and monitored facility, and apply a dedicated tracking number. Our secure storage facility also has an AI-driven security layer which proactively detects anything entering the area. Everything about this rigorously audited service is robust, so we set high standards for the shredder.”
The shredding process is recorded, with the option for the customer to remotely watch the destruction, in real-time.
“We take our business reputation very seriously, so in choosing a shredding partner, we looked for an organisation with equally high standards,” added Tim. “The UNTHA RS30 is a high performance, industry proven machine, and the changeable screen makes it highly configurable as our company continues to evolve.”
