Gartec Service Lift: Key Features

  • Up to 24 entrance points
  • Internal or external installation
  • Load rated from 50-100kg
  • Rise and fall shutters or hinged doors

The Gartec Dumb Waiter uses a self supporting steel structure which is erected in just a day or two, with minimal building works on site and no load bearing shaft. You can enclose the structure to suit the surroundings. A counter balance drive system makes the Gartec dumb waiter more energy efficient without a reduction in power.

Gartec Service Lift Types

Gartec offer 3 main types of dumb waiter/service lift:

  • Standard models
  • Double models, with a bank of 2 dumb waiters
  • Bottom drive models, reducing headroom requirements

Double bank versions of the dumb waiter are great for laboratory lifts or food service lifts where contamination or temperature need controlling. If you would like a double bank, a wall will need to be created on site to separate the shafts.

You can also position a Gartec Trolley Lift beneath the service lift in the same shaft.
