Introduced to the elevator industry in 2002, the PVE37 is the first Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator model developed and distributed worldwide. As the ideal space saving solution, this Two-Passenger Residential Elevator can fit virtually anywhere inside the home without the consuming footprint of traditional home elevators.

Residential Elevator – Two-Passenger
The PVE37 has paved the way for the rest of the pneumatic vacuum elevators lineup. The many features of this PVE37 home lift make it a great option if you want something more spacious than the PVE30, but do not have enough room or the need for the wheelchair-accessible PVE52. It measures 37 inches in outside diameter and 32 inches wide on the interior of the cabin. This air-driven residential elevator can safely carry two adults, or 450 lbs, up to as many as five stops or 50 feet in total rise. For an even more comfortable ride, you can opt to have a cabin seat installed for a single rider to sit on while being carried up to another floor.
Space-Saving Solution for Your Home
The compact PVE37 residential elevator is the perfect option for an existing residence as it does not take up much space, but still accommodates all of the desired applications of any residential elevator. Whether it is used for passengers, suitcases, pets, household items, or anything else, the PVE37 lift serves a number of functions without the consuming footprint and significant construction costs required of a traditional home elevator.
The PVE37 offers in-line (same side) or 180° (opposite side) door openings with one door at each elevator landing. Standing outside of the round elevator and looking at the door, the door opens from left to right (top right hinged). The door width opening is 20 ½ inches which will accommodate a passenger with a walker.
The PVE37 is nothing short of a technological marvel! This home elevator operates with five individual turbines, but these powerful turbines only use 5 kilowatts of electricity, making the PVE37 an environmentally friendly home elevator. It runs off of a 30 amp/220 volt power supply, which is the same as most washer and dryers. If the power goes out in your home, you will not get stuck in the elevator. The safety system is designed to automatically switch to a slow descent when the power goes out, and mechanical brakes engage if the elevator ever begins to free fall.
Another great benefit of this home elevator is that there is very minimal maintenance required. The only scheduled maintenance per the ASME A17.7 certification is every five years or approximately 15,000 lifts on average. This is when the main seal needs to be replaced. There is a significant cost savings over time if you are to compare this to the regular service required for a traditional residential elevator!
As you look more into it, you will be no doubt find that the PVE37 offers everything you need in a residential elevator.
Accessibility, Mobility and Style
The pneumatic elevator PVE37 is the perfect answer to your home mobility and accessibility issues. Whether you use a wheelchair to get around or not, this home elevator makes it easier to go from floor to floor safely. It’s also surprisingly stylish, adding to the look of your home even as it adds accessibility.
Why stay confined to one level of your home when your mobility declines? With its futuristic but elegant appearance and proven track record, the PVE37 is an excellent solution. This home elevator has been on the market since 2002, with a high standard of reliability and quality. This model of home elevator can make between 2 to 5 stops and has a proven track record of safety.
PVE37 Installation and Maintenance
PVE37 elevator installation is simpler than it would be with a traditional shaft-style elevator, and this model also doesn’t need as much space in which to operate. Because it is powered by air pressure, a pneumatic or vacuum elevator doesn’t require a machine room, pit or hoist way.
Like all elevator systems, the PVE37 requires regular maintenance — but it’s only after 15,000 rides, and the maintenance needed is simply to replace the main seal.
Mobility Made Easier
The pneumatic elevator PVE37 is compact, attractive, and helps save space within your home while making it more accessible. Installing the PVE37 is fast and easy, especially when you choose a well-established elevator company like Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators, LLC to handle the installation for you. We do our best to install your elevator quickly and minimize the disruption to your daily life.
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!
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.
Highly recommend. Working with PVE was such an incredible experience! From our very first meeting they were so professional, time efficient & helpful. Couldn’t be happier. Our elevator is heaven sent. Thank you PVE & team.
Residential Elevator Manufacturers
Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators LLC is the designer and manufacturer of the vacuum elevator.
PVE currently manufactures three versions of its air driven residential elevators, ranging from single to a three-passenger, wheelchair-accessible home elevator. All of PVE’s vacuum home lift systems are capable of up to a 50 foot (15m) vertical rise over as many as five stops. The unique design of the vacuum residential elevator is a perfect choice for any retrofit or new construction project and will enhance the value of one’s home without the consuming footprint of a traditional home elevator. The innovative home elevator does not require any pre-construction shaft, pit or machine room and can be installed in as little as two to three days. By using a vacuum pump to generate areas of higher and lower atmospheric pressure within the cylinder hoist way, the unit smoothly moves between floors while using much less energy than other home elevators.
