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.

Reasons to Get a Professional Dumbwaiter Installation

Reasons to Get a Professional Dumbwaiter Installation

There are a few reasons why we think it’s better to get a professional dumbwaiter installation.

There are many times in our lives when we feel like we can tackle home projects on our own. DIY projects are a great way to save money, as long as the task at hand is one that you’re comfortable handling by yourself, and you have the necessary experience. Some tasks, however, are more complex, which can make handling them yourself a challenge. One of these tasks is performing a dumbwaiter installation. This is the kind of job we feel is better off being done by the professionals. There are a few reasons why we think it’s better to get a professional dumbwaiter installation.

They Know About Codes and Regulations

Code compliance is vital with any dumbwaiter installation that gets performed. Without experience installing them, it’s very possible to overlook these regulations, which can cause you to run into legal trouble down the road, or possibly even safety concerns.

By letting professionals take care of your dumbwaiter installation, you’ll have experienced staff in your corner who know how to stay compliant with all relevant codes in your area. This way, your dumbwaiter always abides by applicable laws in your area.

It’s Safer

If dumbwaiters aren’t installed correctly, it could make them unsafe to use. That’s what makes DIY dumbwaiter installations more dangerous. In contrast, letting professionals perform your dumbwaiter installation is much safer because they know the right procedures to follow to ensure a safe and successful installation is done.

You’ll Know Who to Contact for Repairs

If you get a dumbwaiter installation done by professionals, you’ll know who you should call if you ever need repairs done. The same people who built your dumbwaiter should know how to repair it, meaning you won’t have to spend time finding another company to deal with the repairs later.
