Vacuum Elevator PVE30 image

Vacuum Elevator PVE30

It is safe to say that the PVE30 is the smallest home elevator in the world, but by no means should one underestimate its capabilities. Designed as a compact and cost-effective alternative to taking the stairs, the PVE30 vacuum 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 (total footprint), there are very few homes that do not have the space to accommodate the PVE30 single passenger residential elevator.

The smallest of the three vacuum elevator models, the PVE30 only requires a 32 inch finished through floor hole for the elevator cylinders to pass through, and is ideal for town-homes and tight areas where a traditional residential elevator wouldn't even be a thought or consideration. If it is a balcony/mezzanine style installation, the self-supporting home lift can be installed and secured in place against the upper landing(s) by means of a steel balcony band. Rather than requiring a large elevator shaft, the self-contained home elevator made of polycarbonate and aluminum, rests on the existing ground floor and provides a beautiful panoramic view as you travel from floor to floor within the home.

Standard Features:
  • External Cylinder Diameter: 30 inches (750mm)
  • Internal Cabin Diameter: 20 1/2 inches (521mm)
  • Internal Cabin Height: 6'7" (79 inches/2005mm)
  • Entrance way Opening: 20 1/2 inches (521mm)
  • Weight of unit: 560 lbs for 9' ceiling

  • 50 ft (15m) Total Rise Max

  • Two to Five Stops
  • No pit, hoist way or machine room required

  • ASME A17.7 Certified
Vacuum Elevator PVE37 image

Vacuum Elevator PVE37

The PVE37 is the first of the pneumatic vacuum elevator models that was introduced to the elevator industry back in 2002. The panoramic home lift measures 37 inches in outside diameter and 32 inches wide on the interior of the cabin. The 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 accessibility purposes, you can even opt to have a cabin seat installed for a single rider to sit while being carried up to another floor.

With same side, opposite and 90 degree door configurations, the compact PVE37 home elevator is the perfect option for a new construction or retro-fit application as it does not take up much space but still accommodates all of the desired applications of any residential elevator. The self-supporting vacuum elevator rests on the existing ground floor, requiring no shaft, pit or machine room to operate and doesn't need any harmful oils or lubricants to operate.

Whether it is used for passengers, suitcases, pets, or household items, the PVE37 lift serves a number of functions without the consuming footprint, energy consumption, and significant construction costs required of a traditional home elevator.

Vacuum Elevator PVE52 image

Vacuum Elevator PVE52

The PVE52 is the perfect choice for those who are in need of a wheelchair-accessible elevator or the desire for a beautiful and spacious panoramic elevator within their home. This is the largest of the three vacuum elevators, capable of carrying three people, but even our largest lift takes up less space in your home than other traditional elevators. Since the unit has a self-supporting structure, you will not have to add a frame to your home before installing it. This means you can fit this lift virtually anywhere in the home.

Like all other vacuum elevators, the PVE 52 does not need the space for a shaft, pit or machine room. The PVE52 can be set up to have two to five stops in its vertical course, which adapts it to homes up to five stories, or a total rise of 50 feet. The model name for this residential lift comes from its external cylinder diameter of 52 11/16 inches. Inside the unit measures a roomy 43 1/2 inches in diameter. This provides enough space for a person in a wheelchair with an attendant or for up to three adults to stand in comfort. Rolling a wheelchair through the entrance opening is easy with its 32-inch- wide door frame. With same side or opposite side door offerings, the largest of the residential vacuum elevators can be configured to accommodate almost any installation.

Standard Features:
  • External Cylinder Diameter: 52 11/16 inches (1,316mm)
  • Internal Cabin Diameter: 43 1/2 inches (1,118mm)

Special Applications PVE

Although the vacuum elevator is primarily intended as a residential/home elevator, there are a few other applications where the unique elegance of the vacuum elevator can shine through.

It is recommended to speak to a local authorized PVE dealer to discuss local codes and regulations prior to considering the vacuum elevator for any special application, such as Theaters, Bars & Nightclubs and Stage Elevators

Yacht/Marine Elevators

Vacuum elevators are not only ideal due to their minimal footprint as a home elevator, but also within the tighter quarters of a yacht/marine elevator application. With no shaft or pit required, the vacuum elevator lends itself to any 2, 3, 4 or 5 level yacht/ship in need of a lift.
