Dumbwaiters were once thought of as a remnant of the past, but as luxury homes grow larger and take up several floors, dumbwaiters are now seeing a new resurgence in popularity for home use.
Save time and reduce work related injuries
A dumbwaiter is basically a small elevator that can be installed in your home and used to transport materials from one floor to another. For people with especially large homes, a dumbwaiter can save time by making it much easier to transport items like firewood from basements to other floors or food and dishes to upper-level floors from kitchens. These small elevators also reduce the risk of back injuries since heavy loads don’t have to be carried up and down stairs.
A residential dumbwaiter can be installed in just a few short hours depending on the size and type you choose. Dumbwaiters can be either manual or electric so it’s important to know just what type of materials you’ll be transporting. A manual unit is not ideal for lifting heavy loads on a frequent basis, so if you plan on moving heavy items like firewood, an electric model may be better suited to your needs.
