The SoundBlocker3 is a sound-blocking barrier with an STC rating of 30. The material is a rigid mass loaded vinyl. You can install it in the same way as SoundBlocker1 or SoundBlocker2 flexible sound-blocking vinyl barriers, but because the Sound Blocker3 is rigid, it makes the job of installation a little easier, especially for ceilings. Also, for those who cannot do much construction or cannot install dry wall over the flexible SoundBlocker materials, it can be applied directly to any wall or be used as a sound isolation partitioning wall by itself.
The Office Pro applies thousands of tiny imprints to both sides of a CD or DVD disc to ensure that no data is recoverable, preventing identity theft and corporate espionage. You load the spindle and press the button, and the product's built-in motor feeds each disc into a special destruction slot on a timed basis. As each disc is processed, the next one is automatically retrieved from the gravity-fed input bin without the need for manual intervention. Each disc is destroyed in less than seven seconds, which allows 50 discs to be processed in roughly five minutes.
