Fully UL Certified Dumbwaiter Manufactuer
We build a full line of fully certified dumbwaiters. We are the ONLY fully UL certified dumbwaiter manufacturer in the world. Because of that we meet and exceed all national and international building codes.
Our systems have been tested by UL to meet ASME A17.1 and CSA-B44 elevator codes for dumbwaiters. As a result, this ensures we meet all building and safety codes worldwide. We are fully certified for the USA and Canada!
Dumbwaiters for Commercial and High-End Residential Applications
The Inteli-Lift dumbwaiters are for commercial use and high-end residential applications. Also available in five weight classes from 75 to 500 pounds. Most noteworthy the Inteli-Lift dumbwaiters can service up to six floors. We use in-house custom built electronic controllers with current electronic components. Bauer gear motors (made in Germany) are designed to deliver 60,000+ trips per year. We only use the most reliable elevator grade motors available today. Certainly designed for the most demanding applications worldwide. We currently have thousands of commercial, residential and marine dumbwaiters in service today. Our goal is to sell new units, not parts. We overbuild every unit for this reason.
Dumbwaiters for Residential Applications
The Econo-Lift® residential dumbwaiters are available in two weight classes. The 100 and 150 pound units meet the needs of most residential clients. Unlimited custom sizes will service up to four floors. Because they use the same trolley and track system as the commercial dumbwaiters, they are built to last. As a result they are designed to run for 25+ years. When shopping for dumbwaiters, the best advice we can give is to “Compare the “Nuts and Bolts of the System”. Take a look at the controllers, motors and mode of transportation. As a result, you will find there is no comparison to the quality of our dumbwaiters. Installs usually in one day.
Elevation Innovation Inc. started building residential dumbwaiters and commercial dumbwaiters in July of 2005. Within the first six months of inception we made the decision to go beyond the regular standards and get our residential and commercial dumbwaiters fully Underwriters Laboratory (UL) certified to meet all North American elevator standards.
The company was founded by Scott Allen and Andrew Darnley III. Andrew Darnley III the company vice president is an electrical engineer who has a long history with his family in the elevator industry in New York State. Andrew possesses several electrical engineering degrees and also worked at Intel for over 5 years and helped develop the Intel Pentium computer chip. A good part of his family in the north east are all involved in the commercial and residential elevator industry. Andrew grew up with elevators, and is the company’s chief electrical engineer and designer working on both the residential dumbwaiters and commercial dumbwaiter applications. He currently runs a nationwide elevator franchise company and designs and builds extremely custom elevators. He assists Elevation Innovation Inc. on our never ending research and development of state of the art dumbwaiters and provides top tier technical support to our customer base of dealers worldwide.
Scott Allen the company president is the head mechanical engineer who designs all the dumbwaiter systems we build. Scott has a background in structural steel welding, structural engineering, aluminum extrusion design and all business operations.
We Have The Longest Warranty in the Industry. 3 Year Commercial and 5 Year Residential limited warranties. Dumbwaiters are built to last 25+ years.
Innovating a Better Dumbwaiter
EII is on a continuous R&D dumbwaiter program. We continue to modify our dumbwaiters when we receive dealer and installation technician input on possible changes. These changes are to make the residential dumbwaiters and commercial dumbwaiters more robust and easier to install. Our dumbwaiters are by far the most innovative on the market with the fastest installation time when compared to the other dealer based major dumbwaiter manufacturers. Our competitors seem to run on very old technology and designs that are several too many decades old. Choosing to focus on development of their elevator systems leaving the dumbwaiters as is. Our goal in the market place is to do what our name says and “Innovate” continually.
Elevation Innovation Inc. worked closely with Honeywell International Inc. to develop the elevator / dumbwaiter safety door interlocks. The CDI Commercial door interlock and the RDI residential door interlock were developed and designed over a two year period with Honeywell engineers. These code compliant hoist-way door safety interlocks are currently now the most popular and widely used in the elevator and dumbwaiter industry.
Over the last few years we have worked closely with the Canadian TSSA and Technical Safety BC to achieve extremely redundant fully code compliant dumbwaiter electronic controllers. The current Canadian code requirements are by far the most stringent dumbwaiter and elevator codes worldwide. This process has taken upwards of two years to complete.
Our Dumbwaiters are certified to meet all North American elevator standards.

Excellent quality and great customer service! The team is very attentive and knowledgeable. Highly recommended.
My experience with this company far exceeded my expectations! The quality of their equipment is outstanding.
I had some questions regarding dumbwaiter systems. Scott was incredibly knowledgeable and helpful.
This was the most responsive company with the best product for the money! We love our lift!
Extremely courteous and knowledgeable staff.
We have worked with EI for a couple of years, great people, great product and support!
This is a long overdue thank you for your dumbwaiter we used in our residential project in Boston last year. The home owners simply love it, and use it even more than they expected.
The experience with E-I and Terry from Nationwide was wonderful. The GC and I had been having a difficult time with a couple other companies stuck in their old ways and not willing to work with our tight site conditions. In fact, it was their unwillingness to help that lead me to you. They didn’t want to spend time to answer my question and made me call their door manufacturer directly to get typical details. It was that person who ultimately suggested E-I.
You had a smart system and a new approach and solved our problem. I’m reluctant to tell you that you were almost half the price of the original dumbwaiter company and twice the product… and 3x the customer service. Don’t go raising your prices just because I said that.
I look forward to working again soon, and in the meantime I will continue to advocate for you both.
We love our dumbwaiter from Elevation Innovation. It makes having a reversed floorplan so easy. We simply pull the car into the garage and unload the groceries and the food is directly into the kitchen. It is easier than having a single level home.
When we remodeled our home a few years ago, we added a deck and wet bar on the second floor but retained our galley style kitchen on the first floor. An obvious improvement was to use a dumb waiter to send the snacks and beverages to the second floor and use it to return the glasses and dishes to the kitchen. We also added a natural gas BBQ on the deck and the dumb waiter has been great for sending food back and forth. We also use it to send laundry to and from the machines on the first floor to our bedroom on the second floor.
I ordered matching doors from the same cabinet company that built our kitchen, wet bar and bathroom installations. My contractor built the hoistway to your specifications and I installed the parts. The only problem I experienced, not clear in the instructions, was understanding that the Honeywell interlocks had to be in the installed vertical position to work, a telephone call to you cleared everything up and since then, the system has performed flawlessly.
Because of space limitations, our new porch design required a spiral staircase up to the second floor crow’s nest. Carrying food and drinks up these stairs would be an ongoing problem. A dumbwaiter was the logical answer but which one? I surveyed available electric and manual dumbwaiters looking at cost, installation flexibility, durability, appearance, customization and safety. Elevation Innovation was the hands-down winner. The installation went smoothly with timely and complete support from the Elevation staff. My family and I are thrilled with our choice and highly recommend Elevation Innovation.
