Restaurant Lifts – here to make your life easier

If you have a restaurant set over several floors, you will know how important these little lifts are to your business. Not just during a busy food service but on delivery days too.

Here at George Johnson Lifts we specialise in goods lifts and dumbwaiters offering both manually operated and electric lifts. Restaurant lifts are small lifts similar to passenger elevators meant for carrying objects rather than people.

We offer a wide range of dumbwaiters, with varying sizes and capacities often used in restaurants & pubs which are also popular in hotels, schools, private homes, libraries, stock rooms, and even sterile environments for medical equipment. As many of our customers are restaurants and food outlets, we have put together some information on our most popular restaurant lifts to help you make your choice.

  • Our most popular lifts for restaurants are the “waist level models” of Microlift and BKG brands, both providing excellent reliability and performance. For standard restaurant installations our customers often go for weight capacities of 50kg, 100kg or occasionally 150kg.

  • The landing shutters (doors) are available in a wide range of finishes for easy cleaning and hygiene but can also fit in with your chosen décor and are also fire rated.

  • You can choose up to three entrances (front, side, and rear) giving complete versatility.

  • With the serving height at waist level the lift is easy to load and unload.

  • We offer fast installation for minimal business disruption.

  • Our expert team will help you through the process, we can provide free site surveys and guidance on how to use and maintain your dumbwaiter lift as well as ongoing servicing and maintenance packages.

  • George Johnson restaurant lifts are available in a range of sizes to suit your premises and the space available, with standard sizing and bespoke models (which have a much larger load capacity) available for unusual spaces.

  • Alternatively, our Trolley Lift / Floor Level Lifts are ideal for situations where stock and deliveries are loaded into the lifts on trolleys, or for a lift to suit all needs a Multipurpose Lift, for floor and waist level serving.

  • See our lift guide to see which one might be right for you.
