An added value of PVE® elevators* is lower energy cost. The vacuum pump generates areas of higher and lower atmospheric pressure allowing the elevator to moves efficiently from floor to floor.
When adding an elevator to an existing home, some applications require little preparation. Without a need for an elevator shaft, a vacuum elevator can even offer cost savings in certain applications. Whether you have a new construction home or a retrofit application, a vacuum elevator might be the perfect choice.
We offer three PVE® models of these air driven residential elevators, carrying one to three passengers. One model is wheelchair-accessible. All of PVE®’s vacuum home elevators are capable of up to a 50 foot (15m) vertical rise covering up to five stops. This unique home lift system does not require any pre-construction shaft, pit or machine room. Installation can be completed in as little as two to three days after equipment is received.
