A dumbwaiter is a small freight elevator. It is often used for the transport of food in restaurants. However, they can be found in both commercial, public and private buildings.

Freight Elevator

A freight elevator is intended to move very heavy loads, such as cars or cargo in industrial buildings. These elevators are not intended for passenger transport and are designed to withstand tougher working conditions.

Hospital Elevator

A hospital elevator is a type of elevator that is used in hospitals. It is also a vertical transport device, bed elevator, or lift. The design of hospital elevators varies depending on their purpose and use. For instance, a hospital elevator may be used to transport patients.
