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 Why You Should Install Dumbwaiters in Your Home

Why should you install dumbwaiters in your home? Read on to find out.

What are dumbwaiters? And how can they transform your life?

Whether you’re a homeowner or intend to own a home in the future, it is essential to know why dumbwaiters are such vital products. Dumbwaiters are mini elevators used in hotels, restaurants, offices, and homes to transport items, not people, such as foods, groceries, laundry, and office documents between multiple floors. 

This article unveils why you should consider installing these mini lifts and how they revolutionize your life. 

Dumbwaiters Solve Your Home Transport Needs

The main reason to consider installing these elevators is to ease the transportation of heavy goods. Dumbwaiters are ideal for moving items from one floor to the next in your home. You can easily carry serious stuff such as groceries and laundry using dumbwaiters in a multi-floor home with elevators.   


Sometimes, having a multiple-floor house can be challenging, especially when carrying heavy goods between floors. But with dumbwaiters you will no longer be inconvenienced as you can load items into a dumbwaiter and simply press a button to send it to another floor.  

Enhance Safety

It is always essential to protect those with mobility challenges for anyone at any age or stage in life. Having these mini elevators in place ensures that you protect yourself and loved ones from slips and falls when carrying heavy stuff at home. In addition, it can move delicate or fragile items that need to be handled with great care. 

Require Much Less Space

Most people shy off from dumbwaiters because they assume that these elevators consume a lot of space. But surprisingly, dumbwaiters do not require as much space as most conventional elevators do. Fortunately, they can be customized based on your requirements and the available room in your home. 

Easy To Install & Maintain

Like most residential elevators, dumbwaiters are easy to install and maintain. Furthermore, their installation, operation, and maintenance costs are quite affordable. In fact, if you purchase a high-quality dumbwaiter, it will serve you for years and with minimal checks and maintenance. 


Imagine falling while carrying food upstairs. You waste both time and money. Dumbwaiters can minimize such wastages. Besides, they save time by providing a quicker way of transport.
