Why Dumbwaiters

why dumbwaiters

Dumbwaiters provide convenience, safety, and flexibility. Matot’s models can transport a range of materials through an array of vertical handling systems, carrying up to 2500 pounds and traveling as fast as 300 feet per minute.

Why Dumbwaiters?

EFFICIENCY: Dumbwaiters allow employees to move materials without leaving work stations. No time is lost due to employees hand delivering materials to other floors with all the work interruptions that are involved. And avoids cluttering of passenger elevators.

SAFETY: Avoids exposure of employees to the injury potential of lifting materials, carrying materials up and down stairs, or even bending over with heavy loads, which is avoided with counter loading systems. They also avoid the misuse of ladders and forklifts.

FLEXIBILITY: Variety of available drive mechanisms, guide rail types and control circuitry can allow custom operations and systems to interface with special needs, security or material flow requirements.

CUSTOMIZATION: A variety of special features allows customization to fit the unique needs of client’s projects such as automatically opening and closing landing doors, supporting tower structures, sterile / clean room options and automatic loading and unloading of materials and carts.

DURABILITY: Dumbwaiter systems are designed to last the lifetime of your client’s building with modernization cycles. These cycles are equivalent and often exceed elevators.

HEALTH FEATURES: Stainless steel construction can be easily sanitized / washed down. Contaminated and hazardous material can be transported between floors without exposure to unsuitable public areas such as passenger elevators.

WELFARE: Dumbwaiters can enhance the design / décor of a building while increasing the efficiency of an operation. They help employees feel they’re allowed to do their jobs in a clean, efficient and inspiring environment.

Dumbwaiters offer superior benefits over elevators

SPACE SAVING: Dumbwaiters consume 50-75% less floor space than elevators.

SUSTAINABILITY: Dumbwaiters use less energy and less carbon footprint, than elevator systems

ECONOMICAL: Dumbwaiters are more economical with initial and operating costs at a fraction of the cost of elevators, while providing the same life span or better than elevator systems with less maintenance.
