Elevators installed with more than 4 inches of “gap space” between the hoistway doors and the elevator car doors can pose a serious safety risk. Children may become entrapped in the space and could be seriously injured or killed. This risk can be reduced with the proper installation of space guards at each floor.

The Cost Effectiveness of Commercial Dumbwaiters

Commercial Dumbwaiters and the Businesses They Help Preferred Elevator

Commercial dumbwaiters make it easier for employees to transport items.

Commercial dumbwaiters help you save money. It may seem as if purchasing a dumbwaiter requires you to spend more money in the beginning. However, you end up saving a lot of money in the end. Many commercial establishments benefit from dumbwaiters, from restaurants to hotels to libraries and even banks! Let’s think about a restaurant for one moment. Imagine a multi-story restaurant where waiters and waitresses have to multitask as they walk up and down the stairs, serve customers, and carry heavy dishes. Unfortunately, if a waiter or waitress drops food, it could result in product loss, costing you money. Like VRC lifts (vertical reciprocating conveyors), commercial dumbwaiters make life so much easier and safer! Now that you understand why commercial dumbwaiters are cost-effective allow us to elaborate on more benefits of having a commercial dumbwaiter in your business. 

Fewer Injuries

It makes complete sense for every business owner to want to save money and not experience product loss, but your employee’s safety matters most. Picking products up, especially if they’re heavy, takes a toll on the body. Then, trying to transport heavy objects from floor to floor takes even more of a toll on the body and can cause accidents resulting in injury. Commercial dumbwaiters minimize this physical strain and combat workplace accidents. 


No customer wants to wait too long to enjoy a delicious meal or receive the products they need. Rather than taking a lot of time to transport meals and other goods that your customers need, a commercial dumbwaiter saves you time. Customers that receive their products faster tend to be happier. When you add modifications to your business, such as a commercial dumbwaiter, it puts your company one step closer to being a well-oiled machine. 

But Wait, There’s More! 

There is one more cost-effective benefit that you should consider. Not only do commercial dumbwaiters combat against product loss, but they prevent you from needing to hire more employees. Hiring costs are among the costliest expense for any business. Rather than hiring more staff on busy days, a commercial dumbwaiter can help you out with your business’s daily operations.

Did You Know That Residential Dumbwaiters Exist As Well?
