This is the largest of the three vacuum elevators, capable of carrying three people, but even our largest lift takes up less space in your home than other traditional elevators. Like all other vacuum elevators, the PVE 52 does not need a separate space for machinery or additional room above and below the lift for a pit. Since the unit has a self-supporting structure, you will not have to add a frame to your home before installing it. This means you can fit this lift virtually anywhere in the home.
The PVE 52 can be set up to have two to four stops in its vertical course, which adapts it to homes up to four stories, or a total rise of 35 feet.

This provides enough space for a person in a wheelchair with an attendant or for up to three adults to stand in comfort. The cabin height is 6′ 7″, which is tall enough for provide headroom for most people. Rolling a wheelchair through the entrance opening is easy with its 32 inch wide door frame. With same side or opposite side door offerings, the largest of the residential vacuum elevators can be configured to accommodate almost any installation.
As an environmentally friendly home elevator, the only electrical required to power this three passenger, 525 pound lift capacity, residential elevator is 220V, 35 Amp, single phase service. The wheelchair-accessible residential elevator maintains all of the safeties and technology just as the other PVE models. Should a power outage occur, the vacuum lift safely descends to the lowest level and the mechanical door lock enables the passenger to exit, preventing passengers from getting stuck. The cabin is equipped with an LED light as well as a cabin fan that circulates the ambient air throughout the elevator car.
