Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators, LLC is the designer and manufacturer 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. Our environmentally friendly Vacuum Elevators require no harmful oils or lubricants to operate, no additional shaft, pit or machine room, no annual maintenance and only require a 220-volt outlet making them one of the world’s only Plug & Play elevators. 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.
Our worldwide network of over 250 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.
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.
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.
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.
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
