Single-Passenger Residential Elevator
The PVE30 is the smallest residential elevator in the world, yet it is just as capable as other residential elevators that are much larger and much more expensive. The PVE30 elevator has a 350lb (159kg) lift capacity and is capable of up to 50 ft. (15m) of rise over as many as five stops. With a 30 inch outside diameter, it is small enough to fit in even the most modest-sized home. If you thought a home elevator was out of reach for you because of size constraints, this is the solution you have been looking for.
No pre-construction pit, hoist way or machine room required
This home lift was designed as a compact and cost-effective alternative to taking the stairs, and is ideal for townhouses and other tight areas where a traditional residential elevator wouldn’t even be a consideration. As the smallest of the three vacuum elevator models, it only requires a 32-inch finished through floor hole for the elevator cylinder (and you!) to pass through. Rather than requiring a large elevator shaft, this self-contained home elevator rests on the existing ground floor and provides a beautiful panoramic view as you travel from floor to floor within your home. During the ascent or descent, you will enjoy cool, ambient temperatures as a cabin fan circulates the air in the cabin and an LED light keeps the cabin lit.
Eco‐Friendly Residential Elevator
All that is needed to power this mighty elevator is 220V, 25 Amp, single phase service. This is roughly the same as what your washer and dryer use. From an environmental and cost-saving standpoint, the PVE30 draws the least amount of electricity out of all of all home elevator models. Just like the other models in our lineup, it does not even use electricity to descend. Not only will your life be a lot easier now that you can avoid the stairs, but your electric bill will barely change!
Just because it is small doesn’t mean it is any less capable or any less quality-made. It is manufactured from polycarbonate and aluminum, making it one of the best on the market today. Place your confidence in the PVE30 residential elevator and you won’t be disappointed.
PVE30: Space-Saving, Easy to Use and Low Maintenance
This compact vacuum elevator system is the choice of many homeowners because of its small size, but that’s not its only advantage. The PVE30 residential elevator offers several other benefits for homeowners who use a wheelchair to get around or have other mobility issues.
There’s the ease of maintaining this compact pneumatic elevator: Because vacuum elevators use air pressure to operate, thus eliminating the need for shafts or machine rooms, they also have fewer moving parts — which means less maintenance. Along with their sleek style, they are also durable and reliable. And without the need for a traditional elevator shaft, our vacuum elevators also offer better visibility, inside and out.
Low maintenance is also among the benefits of owning a space-saving PVE30 residential elevator as compared to traditional shaft-style elevators. However, like all machinery, home elevators require regular inspections and need to be maintained properly to keep them running smoothly.
What Are the Maintenance Requirements For the Residential Elevator PVE30?
Our residential home elevators are surprisingly easy to install and maintain. The installation takes 1-3 days, and the impact on your home is minimal. Any maintenance required is always expedient and minimally invasive to your daily schedule.
A manufacturer’s study shows that pneumatic elevators need maintenance once every 5 years, or about 15,000 lifts, to replace the main seal. This is only a minor inconvenience compared to a traditional elevator that requires frequent inspections, annual maintenance, and costly parts that must be routinely replaced.
Low maintenance is just one of the features that make our residential elevator PVE30 perfect for homeowners who have mobility issues, but still demand superior function and minimal hassle from their accessibility equipment.
