Most commonly used in restaurants, cafes, hotels and other hospitality settings, dumbwaiter lifts are also popular in large residences with multiple floors, in hospitals and scientific settings, or any other setting where goods need to be quickly and seamlessly transported between floors. While some goods lifts, like platform lifts, can be used to transport users and goods, dumbwaiters are much smaller than passenger lifts, and so should only ever be used for lightweight to mid-weight goods.
The basic technology behind dumbwaiter lifts has actually been around for thousands of years, with the earliest recorded use of dumbwaiter lifts being recorded by an architect in 200BC! Today’s dumbwaiters are considerably more sophisticated than these early designs, but the basic technology is still the same. Dumbwaiters consist of a movable frame inside a shaft, dropped by a rope on a pulley and guided by rails inside the lift shaft.
