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. The PVE30 elevator has a 350lb (159kg) lift capacity and is capable of up to 35 ft. (10.5m) of rise over as many as four 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 PVE30 home lift was designed as a compact and cost-effective alternative to taking the stairs and is ideal for town-homes and tight areas where a traditional residential elevator wouldnA't even be a thought or consideration. The smallest of the three vacuum elevator models only requires a 32 inch finished through floor hole for the elevator cylinders to pass through. 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 bolted into the landings with 3/8A" lag bolts. 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. During the ascent or descent in the PVE30, the passenger can expect cool ambient temperatures from that of its surroundings as a cabin fan circulates the air in the cabin and an LED light keeps the cabin lit. While the PVE37 and PVE52 residential lift models offer same side and opposite side door configurations, the PVE30 is limited to only same side door openings.
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 four stops or 35 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.

The compact PVE37 home elevator is the perfect option for an existing residence as it does not take up much space but still accommodates all of the desired applications of any residential elevator. Whether it is used for passengers, suitcases, pets, household items, etc., the PVE37 lift serves a number of functions without the consuming footprint and significant construction costs required of a traditional home elevator. In both new construction and retrofit applications, many even choose to feature the vacuum lift in the front entrance of their home as a work of art and conversation piece.
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. Like all other vacuum elevators, the PVE 52 does not need a separate space for machinery or additional room above and below the lift for a pit. 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.

The PVE 52 can be set up to have two to four stops in its vertical course, which adapts it to homes up to four stories, or a total rise of 35 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. The cabin height is 6′ 7″, which is tall enough for provide headroom for most people. 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.

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, or 4 level yacht/ship in need of a lift.
