These hard workers go under many names, including dumbwaiters, service lifts, catering lifts, kitchen lifts, back-of-house lifts and restaurant lifts. Speeding up service and keeping customers happy.
Much like an extra pair of hands, these lifts make life easier for businesses and people who need to move food, kitchenalia, documents, books, laundry, small barrels and boxes, and, yes, even rubbish, between different floor levels.
If you need to move food and/or small items between 2—12 stops, then you need a food lift.
A multitude of applications
If you’re in the catering industry—hotels, pubs, restaurants, cafes, bars, commercial kitchens, etc.— catering lifts speed up service and ensure that you keep your customers happy.
Installations are also on the rise in educational establishments, libraries, hospitals, stores, breweries, offices, dentist and doctor surgeries, rest homes and private homes—anywhere where smaller goods need to be moved between floors.
They are small lifts for goods, whatever these may be, on land or at sea.
Fit for purpose—in every way
Dumbwaiters come in different capacities, dimensions and finishes to suit every application. Better companies offer non-standard sizes to cater for unique needs/locations.
Installed quickly and easily in just a few days, food lifts are ideal for new buildings and existing premises, and can be discreetly installed to English Heritage standards in listed buildings. Like this discreet service in a listed 19th-century private home, click here to read the full story.
Food lifts must meet all required safety standards. This offers double protection: of staff, by removing the risks involved in tramping goods up and down stairs, and of owners, from possible litigation.
Always on the go
Food lifts are engineered to give years of reliable service. Their streamlined finish makes them quick and easy to clean and, in food-moving applications, a heated shelf keeps food warm from kitchen to servery/table. For added reassurance, source your lift from a company that offers an inhouse maintenance service as part of your purchase contract.
