Econo-Lift® residential dumbwaiters


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 three 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.

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.

Our Dumbwaiter History

dumbwaiterElevation 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.  United States codes – ASME A17.1 & ASME A17.5, Canada codes – CSA B44 & CSA B44.1-11.  UL file# SA32120 and E317989.  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.

Innovating a Better Dumbwaiter

dumbwaiter commercial cabEII 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.  We are the only manufacturer in the United States that has a complete system with seven segment LED call / send digital display.  We build microprocessor systems as well as many different kinds of “relay logic systems”.   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 in both microprocessor and relay logic.  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.
