Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators LLC, we are the designers and manufacturers of the only vacuum elevators in the world. PVE is an innovative, technology driven company that is revolutionizing how people and goods are transported vertically. Started in 2002 in Miami, Florida, PVE is proudly manufacturing three different models of vacuum elevators, ranging from single passenger to a three passenger, wheelchair-accessible model. By the application of simple physics and the utilization of attractive materials, we literally have initiated transportation within a bubble. At PVE, we think outside of the box, having our customers always in mind, and our engineering capabilities second to none. Our unique design is based around our patented technology, and we are proud to manufacture safe and reliable elevators in use worldwide.
At PVE, we take pride in utilizing materials and components of only the highest quality available, minimizing maintenance, regular component replacement, and service requirements. Our worldwide network of over 100 authorized dealers, have all received in-house technical training at our integrated manufacturing facility in Miami, Florida USA. We now have customers and dealers on five continents and in this way we can assure all end users the best quality of installation and service.
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 35 foot (10,5m) vertical rise over as many as five stops. The unique design of the vacuum residential elevator is a perfect choice for any retro-fit or new construction project and will enhance the value of one's home without the consuming footprint of a traditional home elevator.
