Dumbwaiter Comparisons

SILVER CROSS is not a dumbwaiter manufacturer but rather a free service that assists you in finding the right dumbwaiter at the least costly price. Most dumbwaiters operate similar to a small elevator. A shaft is required along with an internal lifting platform.

Dumbwaiter models are usually installed between the garage level and the kitchen. To determine where dumbwaiters can be added, you must consider the available space for a dumb waiter, where's it needed and design.

The dumbwaiter cost is somewhat similar to about half the cost of a small residential elevator. The reason for this is that an enclosed shaft is required, a lifting device motor, and rails to have the cab ( dumb waiter ) ride on the wall.

Questions about Dumbwaiters

  1. How much weight do you need to lift will determine model of dumbwaiters you require.
  2. What size of packages you planning to move from floor to floor will also be a determining factor of the car size and model of dumbwaiters required?
  3. How much space do you have for dumbwaiters?
  4. How far do you need a dumbwaiter to travel?
