The high-speed, high-powered, high-volume, NSA/CSS EPL-listed PD-5 hard drive destroyer bends, breaks, and mangles hard drives preventing data recovery. Enhance the PD-5’s destruction versatility by adding our patented SSD-1 solid-state destroyer. The SSD-1 pierces memory chips and waffles solid-state media, flash drives, USB thumb drives, and SSHD controller boards. View PDF Brochure
NSA/CSS EPL-listed PD-5 with SSD-1
solid-state media after destruction
Documenting Data Erasure
Add the SCAN-1 destruction verification software and barcode scanner package. Using your own computer, the SCAN-1 compiles a log of the serial number, date, time and crush status of each hard drive into an audit-worthy report.
Add Garner’s exclusive IRONCLAD Verification System. Now the crush depth of the PD-5’s powerful destruction wedge can be verified and documented in an IRONCLAD destruction report. We recommend pairing the IRONCLAD with a PD-5 and a Garner degausser for complete data erasure and destruction with JPG images of degaussed hard drives, providing the best audit trail and proof-of-destruction reports available.

IRONCLAD Proof-of-Erasure & Destruction
JPG image of degaussed hard drive with crush depth
Exportable erasure & destruction report
Create the Ultimate Audit Trail with the IRONCLAD Data Elimination Verification System
Garner’s exclusive IRONCLAD system acts as a digital witness verifying erasure, capturing JPG images of the erased media, documenting the crush depth of the PD-5 and generating an IRONCLAD proof-of-erasure & destruction report.
IRONCLAD Touch Screen – The brain of the IRONCLAD system. Provides a touch screen interface that stores user ID, witness ID, incident number, date, image, data erasure and destruction information in a password protect system.
IRONCLAD Image Capture Module – Provides absolute proof that each hard drive was degaussed by capturing a JPG image of the top of the hard drive immediately after degaussing. These high-resolution images identify bar-codes and unique markings that can be used later during an audit. The information is stored in the IRONCLAD Control Head.
IRONCLAD Scanner – Scans the hard drive serial number or company asset number into the IRONCLAD Control Head.
IRONCLAD Destruction Module – Allows the PD-5 physical destroyer to be integrated into the IRONCLAD Control Head allowing destruction information from the PD-5 hard drive destroyer to be combined with the hard drive erasure record.
IRONCLAD Export Tool – Allows authorized users to export JPG images and all details of the erasure & destruction status for report or archival purposes. Both Ethernet and USB transfer is available
Secure & Compliant
Meets the toughest standards for bending hard drives containing U.S. government classified top-secret data, as well as all other government and industry standards for data destruction prior to disposal.
