For those unfamiliar with this handy multi-level transportation solution, Husbands Lift Company lift is a small service elevator that is typically waist high and used to transport food, drinks or other items. These hard-wearing little lifts are found in restaurants, private homes, and retirement homes as well as many other commercial settings.
While they are sometimes portrayed in television and film, dumbwaiters are not designed to carry people (as the name suggests). They can however be used to transport items such as wheeled carts of medical or legal files, prepared meals or groceries, firewood and even laundry. These systems are very different from a passenger elevator which can only carry 5-50 people at any one time.
Rising Efficiency: Exploring the Benefits of Dumbwaiter Lifts in Hospitality
Besides the convenience of being able to transport items between floors, dumbwaiters are a great safety feature in a workplace environment. Employees don’t have to lift heavy loads up and down the stairs and this reduces the risk of falls or other injuries which can lead to expensive workman’s compensation claims.
Residential dumbwaiters are available in a wide range of styles to suit any multi-level home. These systems can be made to order with a car that will fit the size of your space and load capacity requirements. Cabs can be made from a range of materials including hygienic stainless steel, mild steel with a powder coat finish and in solid hardwood. For higher end systems a three phase electric gear motor with variable frequency drive is the best choice for maximum motor protection and control. Investing in a residential dumbwaiter system is a smart way to future-proof your home and can add significant value when it comes to selling.
