One of the most difficult elements of adding a home elevator to your existing house comes in the form of the construction and remodeling necessary to make room for the lift and ensure it functions correctly. Traditional elevator designs – those depending on pulleys, cables, pistons, and counterweights – need an enormous amount of space and require massive remodeling work. Installing a traditional elevator can take weeks and will dramatically change the interior of your home.

At PVE, however, we’ve created a better vertical mobility solution. Our pneumatic vacuum elevators are completely self-contained and do not require a shaft or the addition of an entire room’s worth of equipment, which means that their installation won’t require huge changes to your home and can be completed quickly and efficiently. In fact, most of our home elevator installs can be completed in as few as two to three days. Our elevators require so little space and construction that we’ve even installed them on yachts.

Because our elevators rely on cutting-edge vacuum technology, there are no cables or weights involved in the system. Every PVE elevator features a stunningly-designed outer tube that provides for almost a 360-degree view and makes an attractive addition to any home. Our elevators are designed with safety and efficiency in mind, but we’ve also put an immense amount of effort into ensuring they are aesthetically pleasing. There is no better looking home elevator solution.

PVE is the inventor and manufacturer of the pneumatic home elevator. We’ve spent years perfecting our designs and have installed over 6,500 units to date. Opting for one of our pneumatic elevators over a traditional elevator design will ensure you end up with an energy efficient, visually appealing lift that won’t require months of construction or a dramatic overhaul of your current home floor plan.


My house was built in 1925 and it was hard to get something to fit in with the décor of my home, but the PVE fit in perfectly. I am thrilled with the design, engineering, and reliability of the vacuum elevator.



I thoroughly enjoy riding in my PVE elevator as its extremely comfortable… I would unhesitatingly, recommend it to people who are confined to a wheelchair like myself, to me it's that good and reliable!

We moved into our dream 2 story home with bedrooms on the second floor. At 60, I thought I could manage the strairs, but soon discovered the challenges were too difficult for me. The 37” diameter PVE elevator was to be my savior. Now I go up and down as I please and stairs no longer prevent me from enjoying my new home. It has been an absolute Blessing! It also looks so gorgeous that three different guests who were admiring our modern statuesque “object d’art” were stunned to discover that it is actually a working elevator! I had to demonstrate it to prove it! Two of them remarked that they wouldn’t even care if it worked (which it does). They just thought it was ultra-attractive and interesting.
