Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators - Compact, Stylish and Eco-Friendly Elevators, Powered by Air

Overview

Headquartered in Miami, Florida, Pneumatic Vacuum Elevators (PVE) is a company that engineers and fabricates a vacuum (“pneumatic”) elevator. PVE presently constructs three models of its air-driven home system: single-person; three-persons; and wheelchair-accessible.

PVE30 - 350 pound capacity, 30 inch diameter (1-2 riders)
PVE37 - 450 pound capacity, 37 inch diameter (1-3 riders)
PVE52 - 525 pound capacity, 52-11/16 inch diameter (Wheelchair accessible)

These state of the art tubular conveyance devices can rise vertically up to 35 feet and can be planned with as many as four stops. The cutting edge technology of the PVE lift has reinvented the concept of vertical transportation inside the home. Furthermore, it is doing so in an environmentally conscious fashion. You see, instead of using oil, cables, and a piston, this unique elevator is traveling via one of the world’s most plentiful commodities—air!

These reasons and many others that can be provided by us are why the PVE line is an excellent selection for a home remodel or even a new residential development. Either in standard dark gray framing or custom colors, these elevators will add to the value of your place while not requiring the potentially overwhelming task or cost that can be installing traditional home elevator.
