Forget everything you thought you knew about home elevators. Our environmentally friendly, state-of-the-art residential lifts help you and your family members move between floors with ease. You can enjoy the luxury of a home elevator without all the hassles of traditional elevators.
You don’t need a lot of room in your home for one of our vacuum home elevators. Our lifts do not require an equipment room and there is no need for a pit/well under the bottom floor or above the top floor for these elevators. For other elevators, these additional spaces are required for the heavy operating equipment, but vacuum elevators bypass the need for anything else but space for the cylinder. This not only means a smaller footprint in your home but a much less costly and less messy construction project in comparison to a traditional residential elevator.
Our air driven home lift line includes choices for one to three adults or for a person in a wheelchair with an attendant. PVE manufactures our elevators with exterior diameters ranging from a minimal 30 inches to a spacious 52 11/16 inches. The type of elevator you choose will depend on you and your household’s space and needs. For single, standing riders, the PVE 30 will suffice. The PVE 37 is a good choice if you need a little more space for two adults to ride, or the option of a foldable cabin seat. And the PVE52 is the answer for the wheelchair accessible model or a spacious and luxurious home lift.
Having an elevator in your home does not mean that you have to break your energy budget. All our home lifts use vacuum technology. This has several advantages over older elevator models. Our vacuum elevators use air pressure to lift and gently lower the cabin. As a result, the elevator itself uses an extremely small amount of electricity, ranging from none during descent to 4.7 kilowatts during ascension on standard models. All of our air driven home elevators are operated by 220 Volts and range from 25-35 Amps.
If you are one of those people who always forget to schedule maintenance for your appliances, don’t worry! Our residential elevators have very few moving parts and do not require any lubrication. Since the design of our elevators is so simple, you only need to call us for a replacement seal every four to five years or 15,000 rides.
Even if you plan on moving in the future, you don’t have to leave your elevator behind. PVE manufactures completely enclosed elevators that are not built into the framework of your home. This means that the self-contained home lifts can be moved to your new home if you decide to relocate in the future. You can even change the elevator’s location inside your existing home if you remodel or add on to your home.
Pneumatic vacuum elevators are fully certified by the American Society of Mechanical Engineers and have been a tested and proven revolutionary change to the elevating industry over the course of the last ten years. If you need a safe, reliable, and attractive lift in your home without the mess and cost of a traditional residential elevator, give us a call to get you in touch with your local authorized PVE dealer .
