Gartec  Service Lift / Dumb Waiter

The Gartec Service Lift (dumb waiter) is a small-load solution for transporting everything from documents, food and laundry to goods, equipment and small trolleys. They are commonly used in hotels, restaurants and pubs, but the versatility of these lifts make them ideal for many settings where loads of up to 100 kg need transporting between floors.

It uses a galvanized structure supporting frame which is erected quickly with minimal building works on site and no loadbearing shaft. A counter balance drive system makes the Gartec Service Lift more energy-efficient without a reduction in power. The lift features safety locks on the doors, and the car can be fitted with adjustable shelving or with fixed, heated shelving if desired.

The Dumb Waiter is available in three main versions: the standard range (offering larger capacity), the double-decker (with banks of two service lifts in one shaft) and the low headroom/ bottom drive range (with base-mounted motor). Double-decker versions of the service lift are suited to laboratory lifts or food service lifts where contamination or temperature needs controlling.
