A Dumbwaiter Can Help You Move Items in Your Home or Business

dumbwaiterIf you frequently need to move heavy or large items from one floor to another in your home or business, climbing the stairs can be a challenge. Make transporting items easier and avoid accidents by installing a residential or commercial dumbwaiter.

A dumbwaiter is an ideal solution for transporting items in a multi-story home. A dumbwaiter can connect your basement to the upper floors of your home, making it easier to transport a laundry basket to and from the basement or to carry groceries to the kitchen. With a dumbwaiter, you will no longer have to navigate flights of stairs carrying heavy, bulky items, thus preventing you from accidentally falling or dropping something.

Installing a dumbwaiter can also help your business operate more smoothly. Dumbwaiters are ideal for transporting dishes in restaurants, boxes of documents in offices, or heavy, bulky equipment in other types of businesses. They can help your employees move items quickly and safely, reducing the risk of accidents and making your business operate more efficiently.

A dumbwaiter from Nationwide Lifts is easy to use. Simply load the items you wish to transport, close the roll-up gate, and press a button to move the items from floor to floor. A dumbwaiter can be configured to operate between two or more floors in your home or business.

Dumbwaiters operate on a rail system and are equipped with standard safety features, including a slack cable, final limit, trolley brake, and locking door. Dumbwaiters come in a variety of sizes and can carry up to 500 pounds.

If you routinely have to carry large or heavy items up and down the stairs in your home or business, consider installing a dumbwaiter from Nationwide Lifts. You can avoid falling or dropping items and minimize the time needed to transport objects from one floor to another, making your business run more efficiently or giving you more free time at home.

Vacuum Elevators Offer a Safe, Affordable In-Home Option

vacuum elevator gizmag.comPneumatic, or vacuum, elevators can be installed in homes at a lower cost and in a fraction of the time than traditional residential elevators.

The elevators work on the principle that air will travel from an area of high to low pressure. The air in the area below the cab is kept at atmospheric pressure using a suction device. When the air pressure above the cab is lowered, the difference in pressure causes the cab to rise. When a valve in the upper part of the shaft lets air at atmospheric pressure into the low-pressure chamber, the difference in pressure lowers the cab.

The system operates without cables, pulleys, or pistons. Locking devices inside the shaft stop the cab at the top and bottom exactly at floor level. Since it is controlled by air pressure, rather than a mechanical system, starts and stops are very smooth. A braking system consisting of a diaphragm or piston on the roof of the cab activates if the tube above the cab suddenly returns to atmospheric pressure. Vacuum elevators are safe and reliable, since it is almost impossible to get stuck between floors or freefall. If the power goes out when the cab is descending, the elevator will automatically stop and lock at the next floor.

Vacuum elevators are transparent, self-supporting, constructed of aluminum and polycarbonate, and are quick to install. They are extremely light, have a capacity of up to 450 pounds, and take up only about one square-meter in area. They can work in almost any two- or three-story building, including non-conventional homes. They are a good option for existing homes, since they do not require excavation of a pit and hoistway. Maintenance costs are much lower than those for traditional residential elevators. Vacuum elevators use low amounts of energy when ascending and no energy when descending, making them a more affordable and environmentally-friendly option than other residential elevators.
