DB-4000 Destruction Device

DB-4000 Destruction Device

National Security Agency Evaluated, durable, and a safe alternative to hard drive shredding. The DB-4000 Destruction Device is a heavy-duty hard disk drive (HDD) destroyer. Simply open the door and insert a hard drive. With single-button operation, the powerful blade of the DB-4000 Destruction Device descends on the media. With the force of 40,000+ psi, the indestructible blade presses down on the media, bending, folding, and crushing the delicate platters and circuitry of the drive, rendering it unusable and ready for disposal.


  • Largest chamber in an automatic destruction device, able to destroy oversized media formats as well as multiple pieces simultaneously.
  • Built to last; indestructible ram requires no preventative maintenance or expensive repairs.
  • Listed in the NSA/CSS Evaluated Products List for Hard Drive Destruction.
