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!
Our work with Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators allowed us to create solutions for our clients with luxury coastline homes, working with limited space. The product installs well in small spaces utilizing closets, pantries and laundry rooms. Their engineering department assisted in crafting non-traditional installations, making for extremely satisfied homeowners. Clients appreciate the product for its modern, sleek footprint and superb functionality.

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.
