Within the picturesque market town of Otley (West Yorkshire), on the banks of the River Wharfe and in the shadow of Otley Chevin, our EN81-3 BKG Dumbwaiter Service Lift assists Buon Apps, a hugely popular family-run Italian restaurant.
Providing “a genuine taste of Italy”, the restaurant prides itself on the high quality of its food and service, which our Marketing Manager and Otley resident, Michael Craddock, can testify to.
The restaurant is over two floors, with the kitchen on the ground floor and the main seating on the upper. The client required two Shorts-BKG Dumbwaiter Services Lifts to operate as separate “clean” and “dirty” lifts. One carries freshly cooked food from the kitchens, and the other takes dirty plates and equipment back to the pot-wash.
Our New Lifts Distribution team worked closely with Liftco Ltd to specify, design and supply a custom-built 50KG Dumbwaiter Service Lift and a 100kg Advantage Dumbwaiter with heated car floor and adjacent entry car, which is available from stock within our Bradford warehouse.
Key elements were:
- Quick lead time – Our Advantage model was available to collect three days after the order.
- Heated Car Floor – To ensure the food arrives hot, straight from the professional kitchen.
- Roller Car Shutter – To provide extra protection to the food and other items by stopping anything falling out of the lift car during transit.
What is also uncommon with this specification is the requirement for two adjacent entrances on floor one to allow loading and unloading from two different sides of the lift car simultaneously.
