Dumbwaiters are small freight elevators that are intended to carry food, books or other small freight loads rather than passengers. They often connect kitchens to rooms on other floors. They usually do not have the same safety features found in passenger elevators, like various ropes for redundancy. They have a lower capacity, and they can be up to 1 meter (3 ft) tall. Control panels at every stop mimic those found in passenger elevators, allowing calling, and door control and floor selection.
