The term ‘dumbwaiter’ was first used in wealthy houses in the mid 1800s for the household staff to transporting food and dishes upstairs to the dining room and back down to the kitchen, so offering a noise free transportation of items, hence the term “dumb waiter ”
Dumbwaiters are also known as food lifts, kitchen lifts, microlifts and service lifts and are designed for transporting food, drinks, stationery and small freight from floor to floor in pubs, restaurants, cafes, factories, residential houses, libraries, shops, banks and offices.
Service Lifts offer over 50 different models, with doors on any side, motors at the top, bottom or side and with different finishes to match your needs and décor. Our stock models can be installed within 1 week, sometimes sooner.
In the last 35 years we have fitted over 5000 dumbwaiters all over the UK and Europe, in Asia and the USA and as far away as Australia.
Our German-designed and manufactured dumbwaiters are regarded in the lift trade as the best and most reliable on the market, with unrivalled flexibility and at surprisingly low cost.
