Blackfriars offer a range of security destruction solutions.

Blackfriars have vast experience in the field of security destruction of all types of materials. Various types of material can be processed by Blackfriars Secure Destruction Granulators, these include:

Bank notes
Value printing
Tickets, passes, Security ID
Passports and Visas
Magnetic tape and discs
Hard disks, hard drives, USB sticks
Audio and video cassettes
Photographs, film
Documents, files, computer print-out.

Unlike shredder machines, Blackfriars security granulators are designed to destroy any material into screened irregular shaped confetti and granules, which destroys all recognition and prevents any chance of reconstitution.

The size of particles can be easily altered using easily interchangeable screenplates, producing confetti between 2mm and 25mm, dependant on individual requirements.


With a proven throughput rate of up to 70kg / hour which equates to 70,000 notes per hour in straps of 100 notes, the Blackfriars system is designed to the individual requirement of each bank location and is bespoke to the processing needs of each, such as:

  • Offline granulator destruction
  • Shred handling requirements from online bank note sorting machines and offline granulator
  • High throughput requirements
  • Small, complex building layouts and room sizes
