A Plethora of Commercial Elevators Options

There are various kinds of commercial elevators that help companies and organizations run their day-to-day activities more smoothly. Below are some options available at Bramalea Elevator.

  2. The Freight Elevator: These are used mainly for transporting heavy freight across different platforms in a building. They supersede the material lift in terms of speed, capacity, and travel area.

  3. Auto Elevator: as the name implies, this elevator is used for carrying and lifting vehicles. It can be used for residential and commercial reasons and can be a great way to maximize parking space at home or work.

  4. Dumbwaiters: Dumbwaiters are similar to freight elevators in design, but they are smaller in size and capacity.
