There are a variety of elevators on the market. What benefits and features should homeowners consider when picking the best elevator solution for their project?

Below is a breakdown of the variety of items to consider.

Residential Lift – Pre-Construction Requirements

Residential Install

It is important to review pre-construction requirements needed to accommodate a lift. Traditional elevators often require pre-construction shafts, pits or a dedicated machine room. These elevators can occupy a lot of space in your residence. Also, they require more construction work. For retro-fit applications, traditional lifts are often installed in stacked closets. Therefore, limit the installation possibilities inside the residence. Furthermore, they can affect the home’s structural integrity. This makes their installation more involved. 

Home elevators by PVE are self-supporting, plug & play elevators simply resting on the ground floor. They are easy to install inside any home. They do not require any pre-construction shaft, pit or machine room. Residential Elevators by PVE operate using a 220 volt, plug and play system and simply plugged into your wall. Also, PVE elevators have fewer pre-construction requirements than traditional elevators. Our elevators do not require any harmful oils, gases or lubricants; they are environmentally friendly. Over time, our elevators require little maintenance, saving time and money. Dedicated machine rooms are not necessary, because homeowners install our machinery above the elevator.

Elevator Design – Enhance Your Home

Design of the lift and it’s aesthetic addition to your home is a factor to consider. Hydraulic and traction elevators installed in stacked closets with a dedicated shaft do not enhance design of a residence. Free-standing platform lifts found on the market are manufactured overseas. These elevators are visible inside the home; in other words, they do not have an enticing aesthetic. They often have unattractive posts and cables visible when the elevator is stationary. In addition, traditional glass elevators can also be far more expensive and require more installation time due to the material used.

Why PVE is the Best Lift Home Elevator?

As the world’s only air-driven home elevators, Vacuum Elevators elegantly provide accessibility and enhance the value of your home while requiring much less construction, space, energy and maintenance when compared to traditional home elevators and/or home lifts. Using Pneumatic Technology to generate lift, these self-supporting, panoramic elevators offer homeowners an eco-friendly and aesthetically pleasing solution for any retro-fit or new construction project. Manufactured in Miami, Florida USA, Vacuum Elevators can travel 2 – 5 stops or 50 feet (15m) in total rise and are commonly installed in as little as 2 -3 days.

Is the pneumatic elevator made out of glass?

While Pneumatic Elevators are panoramic, they are manufactured using Polycarbonate Panels and are not manufactured using glass. Polycarbonate panels are much lighter and stronger than glass panels, with an impact resistance approximately 200 times stronger than glass. Each one of the panels on the elevator can be replaced in the event that a panel is damaged, scratched, etc.
