Internal Cab Dimensions
Each "Vertical Valet" Dumbwaiter, is custom manufactured to your specifications.
It is often desirable to define the size of the unit by the interior dimensions
of the cab. This will allow you to determine if some special item, a laundry
basket or a case of champagne, will fit in the dumbwaiter.
To obtain a shaft size for a particular interior cab size, add the
dimensions below to the desired interior cab dimensions. Please keep in mind
that our standard unit accommodates a shaft size of a minimum of 20" by
20", a maximum of 30" by 30" (after sheet rock) or any combination of these
dimensions and a maximum 34 inch "Rough Opening" for the loading door.
Add 5 ¼ inches to the interior width of the cab for the finished
width of the shaft
Add 2 ¼ inches to the interior depth of the cab for the finished
depth of the shaft.
Add 4 5/8 inches to the interior height of the cab for the rough, vertical
These numbers are for our standard unit with doors on the same side at
all floors. If your dumbwaiter shaft design is different we will be happy
to work with you on your measurements.
Manufacturing dimensions are based on the finished footprint of the shaft, (Plan view,
looking down from above) after the shaft sheet rock is installed.
Cab height is based on the vertical rough opening for the loading door.
All vertical dimensions, the height above the lower floor, the height
of the cab and the vertical lift are based on the rough dimensions.
lift is the distance between the bottom sill of the lowest opening to
the bottom sill of the highest opening.
A door that you pull towards you from the right side is defined
as a right hand door (hinges on left). A door that you pull towards you from the left side
is defined as a left hand door (hinges on right).
