Material Lifts

Dumb Waiters

Material Lifts Elevator Building Maintenance offers material lifts and package handling lifts through Pflow technology. These lifts, often referred to as dumb waiters, offer high-speed material and package handling ability specifically designed for automated system applications that require lifting of boxes, cartons, packages, totes, containers, cases and freight.

On average, material lifts serve two levels. However, in a building with more than two levels, this can range up to 3 levels and more. In a multi-level building, the electronics in material lifts are more sophisticated in order to deal with the various stopping times. The capacity is defined by the ability to supply a bigger load capacity, along with a more robust lift motor. The addition of counterweights and a stronger lift cabin to carry extra capacity are common in service lifts, similar to the material lifts or dumb waiters, and can range up to 300kg.
