An alternate option to those with restricted headroom, the motor unit is located at the bottom of the shaft giving reduced headroom and easier maintenance access. Loading and serving is from a counter level entrance with rise and fall shutters.

50/100kg Double Decker Lift

The Double Decker dumb waiter service lift utilises two lift cars in the same shaft, ideal where space is restricted. Loading and serving is at both floor and counter levels. The lower car entrance has a hinged landing gate, the upper car has rise and fall shutters.

A dumb waiter is also of value in numerous other environments which may not immediately spring to mind. For example, they can be used for transporting goods in a shop, moving stationery between office floors, or relocating records in a medical centre or hospital. Because of this flexibility, dumb waiters typically prove to be a great assistance to any sort of business environment.

Dumb waiters were first invented in the 19th century, although the original meaning of the phrase actually indicated a device that was more akin to a serving tray. Nonetheless, the new meaning soon became the exclusively accepted definition, and the success of dumb waiter lifts is clearly evident from the fact that they still see such widespread use today.

Our reliable selection of varying lifts have already been utilised within some of the UK’s most prestigious establishments, so you can always be certain of receiving the very best quality service when you choose Axess 2.
