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.
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.
