Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator: The New "Space Age" Way to Travel Between Floors in Residential Homes

Share Article

The Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator (PVE) is a perfect choice for a retro fit or a new construction project. These elevators enhance the value of any home without consuming the footprint of a traditional home elevator. The vacuum elevator combines a smooth vertical cylinder with a coaxial car that moves up and down through air suction, just like the tubes that are seen at banking establishments.

Mobility Lifts is proud to announce that they are now offering the Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator or PVE to their product lineup. Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator is available for residential installation in Maryland, Virginia, and Delaware.

What is a Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator?
A Pneumatic Vacuum Elevator (PVE) uses air pressure to move the car up and down through the floors in a residential home using air pressure, just like the tubes that are in use at banks.

With a simple push of a button, a person can transcend to any level in a home in a sleek, stylish elevator that takes up half the room as a traditional home elevator.

What advantages are there between a traditional residential elevator and a PVE elevator?
Traditional residential elevators require a shaft to be constructed to accommodate the elevator. This generally takes up to 25 sq. feet of space on each floor. A PVE elevator requires no shaft, as it is free standing, and only requires a 30”, 37”, or 52” (depending on model chosen) hole to be cut in your floor to accommodate the elevator. Without having to build a shaft, and only having to cut a hole for the PVE elevator, the homeowner could save anywhere from $18,000 to $34,000 by choosing a PVE elevator over a traditional residential elevator.

A PVE elevator installed by Mobility Lifts can be an affordable and practical solution to gain access to your entire home. The PVE elevator can be installed in virtually any home, and are very eco friendly using power only in the up direction. The entire PVE elevator provides the user with a transparent 360 degree view during the elevator ride. So there is no dark, confining feeling while inside the elevator. The PVE elevators require little maintenance, which could save the homeowner thousands by not needing costly maintenance contracts.
