When buying a business machine or home working solution with the Fellowes name on it, consumers know they’re buying far more than just a product. They’re buying a brand that’s been around for more than 100 years. A brand that’s known for excellent build quality, reliable performance and stylish good looks. And now, as we enter 2021, the bar has been raised even higher with a great line up of new products for the new year. More intuitive, more productive, and even more aesthetically pleasing than ever before.
Enter the newly extended range of LX Series shredders for home and office shredding; the incredible Lyra 3-in1 Binding Centre that binds, hole punches and staples in one machine; and the super lightweight and rather ingenious HylyftTM portable laptop riser that’s specifically designed for hybrid workers who spend time in both the home and workplace environments.
Extended range for the next generation of shredders
Following on from the successful launch of the LX Series next generation of shredders in early 2020, Fellowes has launched the next generation of shredders in the LX line.
The original LX Series 221, 211 and 201 shredders protect privacy by reducing an A4 sized sheet to over 2000 unreadable particles that are 6x smaller than standard cross-cut. The small, compact micro-cut particles fill the waste bin more efficiently than standard cross-cut pieces, resulting in the ability to hold up to 150 per cent more shredded sheets for less frequent bin emptying. By design, micro-cut shredders offer a quieter shredding experience, reducing noise-related disruptions and making them ideal for shared workspaces.
These LX models include two of Fellowes’ propriety features. The first is Fellowes 100 per cent Jam Proof System, which guarantees efficient shredding by eliminating frustrating paper jams and powering through tough jobs. The second one is the patented SafeSense Technology, which automatically stops the machine from shredding if hands (or paws) touch the paper opening, providing extra peace of mind when using around children or pets.
For the LX Series shredders, Fellowes engineers set out to improve the shredding experience utilising in-depth consumer research on the shredding experience. The research found end-users biggest frustration was anything that prevented the continuity of shredding – like, for example, paper jams. Based on this knowledge, Fellowes set out to reinvent the shredder. The team-maintained Fellowes industry-leading technologies and added the IntelliBar, a first of its kind patented responsive technology. The IntelliBar allows end-users to shred with maximum productivity and convenience through an easy-to-follow and automatic colour-coded light display on the machine.
The series has now been extended to include the LX220, LX210 and LX200 mini-cut shredders finished in black and having the capability to shred each A4 sheet into 1000+ particles. These models also benefit from IntelliBar Technology and are designed for one to five users, depending upon which model is selected.
Personal users and home office workers can also enjoy the LX Series experience with the brilliant new LX85, LX65 and LX45. These compact and excellent performing models are available in a smart black finish and can shred each A4 sheet into 300+ particles to ensure high-security protection. Once again, user safety is of paramount importance; and, depending upon which model is chosen, the patented SafeSense Technology or a neat safety lock is included.
As the developers of the World’s Toughest Shredders, the team at Fellowes is naturally proud to unveil the new and extended range of next generation of shredders to the marketplace. The LX Series has been enhanced to provide end-users with a superior shredding experience. And, as we see changes in working environments, product design is becoming ever more important. This means it has to look good as well as perform brilliantly. Therefore, a beautiful design was front of mind when Fellowes developed the LX Series. Their compact size and attractive lines provide aesthetic appeal that’s just perfect for today’s homes and offices.
First-of-its-kind binding centre enhances document binding productivity
Fellowes has launched the next generation of binding systems, Lyra 3-in-1 Binding Centre. For work or school, Lyra’s versatile functionality is for any binding need, from presentations and books to business reports, and everything in between. The centralised workstation enhances and simplifies document binding productivity by combining the functions of comb binding, stapling, and 2 and 4-hole punching into a single machine.
Functionally, Lyra effortlessly staples up to 30 sheets using the staple edge guide and the patented EasyPress double-action stapler. Built upon Fellowes’ best-selling binding machine, the comb binding and hole punching start with the easy vertical document loading for aligned pages and clean punching. The Lyra also features document and comb measurement guides to help users achieve perfectly accurate results. The hole paper punch has a 30-sheet capacity, and the comb binding punches up to 20 sheets of paper at a time and binds up to 300 sheets.

The go-anywhere laptop riser
One of the biggest selling ergonomic accessories over the last 10 months has to be laptop risers. They’ve literally been flying off the shelves. To add to the brand’s current range of laptop supports, Fellowes has launched the Hyliyft portable laptop riser. The ideal solution for elevating a laptop to a comfortable viewing position to reduce eye, neck and shoulder strain – whether the user is working from home, in the office or a coffee shop. The minimalistic Hylyft easily fits into a bag, assembles in seconds, and effortlessly adjusts to provide six height positions. It’s made from the super lightweight HYLITE material, and as it folds fully flat, it takes up no room at all. The design incorporates a cut-out section to enable laptop airflow whilst leaving all ports and drives accessible. And to complete its versatility, the black storage pouch can be used as a mouse mat, making it perfect for agile working.
